Puppy care is important when deciding on bringing home a new fur baby. You are promising to give that pet companionship, loyalty, and love for a lifetime. Caring for a puppy when he/she leaves his siblings is a loving and fun time. As your fur baby grows, he/she will need the proper exercise and nutrition to become healthy happy lifelong companions.
Your puppy should be cared for by its mother until they are completely weaned or at least 8 weeks of age. Once they are completely weaned from their mother, they may be brought home and loved and cared for by you. Your puppy may whine or cry the first few nights because they have never been away from their mother. It’s a whole new atmosphere for them, so it can be a bit scary.
Make sure your home is properly prepared for a new fur baby. Put up all cords that may be hanging, make sure he/she cannot escape out of the house, and make sure he/she can not get trapped. Your new fur baby may tend to sleep a little more the first few weeks after being welcomed into your home, because he/she is really busy trying to adapt to the new surroundings. This is normal and nothing to worry about.
When caring for a new fur baby it is very important to properly feed them, get a lot of playtime and exercise. Housebreaking your puppy can take several weeks, sometimes longer, to be completely trained. Your fur baby will also need a lot of time obedience training and learning new tricks.
Many new fur baby owners develop a love for their pets, where they become like their children. Puppies will grow rather quickly, so make sure to give them high quality food with a high quality of protein. Also, it is important for them to have lots of love and affection. If you have any questions, never hesitate to ask your veterinarian.
Puppy care includes, getting them vaccinated during the proper schedule, giving lots of love and affection is also important. Allow them to sleep when tired. Play with them as much as they allow for proper exercise. As they grow, bathing, teeth brushing, brushing their fur, daily walks etc. all become essential to their daily care.
