Aren’t puppies the cutest? They sure are! Don’t you just miss the days when your dog was a small puppy? All playful and joyful moments, full of energy and of course always hungry! Well, those are probably the most interesting days of every dog owner’s life. However, even if it sounds all so fun, there are some things every dog owner should know when having a puppy.
Choosing the right puppy
Even though they all look like small fur balls, they eventually grow up. The first thing to do when choosing a puppy is to examine your lifestyle and consider what you need. You need to decide if you want to get a mixed breed or a pure breed. If you decide on getting a mixed breed or adopting a stray dog, you should really inform yourself about it. Things like size or character are crucial when choosing a dog. If you choose to get a pure-breed puppy, you should also do some research on how big will it grows up to be or what is the temperament of the breed. Another important thing to know is if the puppy needs a lot of physical activity. Also, if it is suitable for an apartment or in a house. In addition, there are puppies that need a lot more attention and maintenance than other puppies. So, you should check your schedule if you really have the time for owning a puppy and taking good care of it.
Choosing a sweet and meaningful name for a puppy
Every person who thinks about getting a puppy probably has a few name ideas. Even if the puppy is not yet in your home, most likely you have chosen a name. Owners choose names for their puppies based on their appearance, their temperament, or sometimes something unique. You need to choose the name of your puppy wisely; it is the one you are going to use for many years!
Vaccinations and choosing a vet for your puppies
Perhaps the most important thing is choosing a good vet for your puppy. Someone who has the experience and knows what he/she is doing. Also, it is a good thing for the vet to be in your neighborhood or close to your home. Maybe you can get a recommendation from a friend who already has a dog. Even in this case, researching is a good thing. After all, that is going to be the person who will take care of your dog’s health. When you have already chosen a vet, it is time to start with vaccinations. Puppies have to be vaccinated. There are a few different vaccination plans for puppies and they depend on the territory or country you live in. However, a good vet knows the best vaccination plan for your puppy and you should do as he/she tells you. There is one important thing during the vaccination period. Even though you just got your puppy and you want to show it to everyone, or take walks, that is not a good idea when it is the vaccination period. Your puppy’s immune system is low and it is the perfect time for it to get a disease or get ill. So, please wait for a few more weeks (as your vet tells you) and after the vaccines are done you and your dogs will have many years to walk and play in the parks!
Puppy food and basic needs of a puppy

You can ask your vet for any recommendations or even some friends that have dogs too. Most of the time puppies are not choosy and they will probably eat anything you get.

Puppies need to have 2-3 meals a day, unlike adult dogs who only eat once or sometimes twice a day. So, you need to divide the daily amount of food into 2-3 meals.

Training your puppy
Training is not only a part of teaching tricks, it’s also important for Hygienic Habits. Training your puppy on the basic things is essential for your lifestyle. Your puppy needs to learn where the place for pooping and peeing is. You will probably spend some time just cleaning your place from all the mess your puppy leaves you.

Special toy for Puppies

[…] Puppies are probably the cutest thing, but they are the most likely the hardest part of owning a dog. Every breed can have a different number of puppies in one litter. However, even taking care of one puppy can be a hard job for the owner, so just imagine a whole litter! Puppies need to be fed with a special puppy food after they stop with the milk from the mom. They need to be vaccinated and during that period, they should be in quarantine. Being in quarantine means not being in contact with other dogs and the outside environment. Because during that time of vaccination, their immune system is not strong enough and they could get ill. They need to be trained, most importantly for toilet habits and of course for the things they can or cannot do in the home they live in. Training can take up a lot of time, but it is worth it! […]
