Top 10 Tips for New Puppy Owners


New puppy driving you wild? Here are some helpful tips to train and care for new puppies!


  1. Spay or neuter your puppy. Recommended by veterinarians because it reduces the chances of cancer in the reproductive organs.
  2. Put an ID tag on your pet’s collar. Be sure to include your phone number in case your pet becomes lost. Microchipping is another option available for puppy identification.
  3. Take your puppy to the vet for a physical and vaccinations.
  4. Plan your puppies diet to help maintain a healthy body weight and a healthy pet.
  5. Housebreak your puppy as soon as possible. The sooner you do, the sooner the puppy potty mishaps will be over.
  6. Consider crate training your puppy as well. This is a special place your puppy can retreat when they are feeling tired.
  7. Train your puppy to learn the rules and boundaries. This shows your puppy who is in charge. It will also help keep your puppy safe.
  8. Puppy proof your house. Think about what may be potentially harmful and prevent an accident from happening. Puppies should not be able to access cleaning products.
  9. Take your puppy to new places to help them learn to socialize with other dogs and people.
  10. Bond with your puppy and enjoy the short puppy phase. Then your puppy will grow up to be a loyal and trusted companion capable of both giving and receiving love.

Important tip: Puppies need vaccinations every 3-4 weeks until they’re 16 weeks of age.
