Thinking of getting a new puppy? Here are 7 things you may not know as a new puppy parent!
Puppies Like Routine
A routine can reduce stress for a puppy and keep them happy. Try to follow a general structure to your day, especially involving your puppy.
Puppies Have Very Sharp Teeth
They may be small, but they sure can pack a bite. Training your dog not to bite everything is important so it doesn’t become a bad habit later.
Puppies Will Try To Eat Everything
It doesn’t matter what it looks like – if it’s small enough, a puppy may put it in their mouth. They may eat bugs, tissues, decorations, and anything else – some of which may be toxic to them.
They Also Chew A Lot
Puppies go through a phase of teething, just as human babies do, and it can cause pain and discomfort. This means they’ll be chewing as many things as they can. Make sure they have enough chew toys.
It’s A Lifestyle Adjustment
There is much more care involved with raising a puppy than you may think. You will have to give up some things for your puppy, but it will be worth it.
Puppies Use The Bathroom A Lot
Puppies need to use the bathroom more often than older dogs. Their bladders are quite small, after all. As such, house training is very, very important.
Puppies Will Make You Emotional
There are few mood swings quite like that of the parents of new puppies. You will be furious when they chew your favorite shoes. You will be overjoyed with your love for them. It’s all part of the process; enjoy it.
