    THE TEN GOLDEN RULES OF PUPPY CARE

    [​IMG]
    Rule 1:-
    Training starts on day one:

    It’s never too early to start training your puppy through training your dog will learn to understand what you expect of him and be better equipped to fit into his environment.
    Rule 2:-
    A pupply needs a balanced diet:
    What you feed your puppy really matters, in fact, he needs special nutrition with just the right amounts of protein, fats, minerals and vitamins and always make sure your puppy gets plenty of fresh clean water.
    Rule 3:-

    Keep your puppy well groomed:

    Start grooming your puppy at an early age. The earlier your dog gets to know the procedure, the more readily he will get used to it.
    Rule 4:-

    Puppies need regular dental care:


    Taking care of your puppy’s teeth now will prevent a lot of problems later on in his life. In fact, the number one health problem for dogs, is periodontal disease. So start brushing your puppy’s teeth now.
    Rule 5:-

    Exercise your puppy daily:
    Part of the normal routine for a healthy puppy is regular exercise. The amount your dog needs will depend not only on his size, but also on his breed.
    Rule 6:-

    Regular vet check ups is a must:-

    Your puppy in home, you should take him into the vet within the next day or so far an overall check up. When your puppy reaches adulthood, at least one visit a year is required to ensure his ongoing good health.
    Rule 7:-

    Give your puppy home health checks:
    You can play a big role in keeping your puppy healthy by doing health check ups at home. Frequently check his weight, coat and skin, eyes and ears, teeth and guns to prevent small problems from turning into big ones.
    Rule 8:-
    Introduce your puppy to other dogs:
    One of the best ways to teach good canine manners is to allow your puppy to interact with an adult dog. Most adult dogs won’t be aggressive though some times, a big dog will find a way to put a puppy in its place. Perhaps with a growl or a snap.
    Rule 9:-

    Reward good behaviour:
    Positive reinforcement is a powerful way to make your puppy a well behaved member of your family. Reward him with a treat or praise when he does what you tell him.
    Rule 10:-

    Be patient:


    Raising a puppy requires a lot of love and patience. Educate yourself by reading, talking to other dog owners and communicating with your vet. This will eliminate many “Surprise” along the way, and will help you build a strong enduring relationship with your puppy.
