Bringing Home a New Puppy

Bringing home a new puppy is kind of like having a new baby at home, you need to have a proper preparation. Whatever the breed of your puppy, whether it’s a Labradoodle, Bichon Frise, Cockapoo, Pugs or others, chances are your puppy will not be too much to handle, but it’s still important for you to at least cover all bases.

Feeding and Water Dishes

You need to consider the size of your puppy when choosing feeding and water dishes. Your tiny Yorkshire Terrier puppy may have difficulties to eat if the feeding dish is too big, on the other hand, if it’s too small your puppy may not have enough food to eat.

Leash and Colar

These are two must-have items for your French Bulldog puppy, so he can get used to walk with a leash. However, before you actually take the puppy outside for a walk, it’s better if you can speak with your veterinarian first to make sure the puppy is ready.

Sometimes a puppy owner get confused when choosing whether to use a harness or a colar. You can decide it based on the size of the puppy. If you have a tiny puppy like a Cocker Spaniel or Dachshund, then it’s best to use a harnes. But if it’s a larger puppy like a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, then a colar would be suitable.

Teething Toys

Just like babies, puppies also go through a phase where they lose their puppy teeth and grow adult teeth. That’s why they like to chew on stuff all the time. In order to prevent this behavior to become destructive, give your puppy some chewing toys so he won’t have to chew on your furniture.

Confinement Area

Just like a baby that needs a crib, you also need to prepare a decent confinement area for your puppy. This way you won’t have to worry if you have to leave your puppy at home unattended.

    My advice is to avoid letting him sleep in your bed the first couple of days. I did this because my pug was too sweet to say no to him and we had a lot of trouble training him not to sleep in my bed.
