|Your New Puppy
Here are some tips on preparing for your new puppy
The supplies you will need:
1. Pet food (We Recommend Purina Puppy Chow or Purina One)
2. NuVet Plus (Daily Supplement 1-800-474-7044 order code 83113)
3. Food and water bowls
4. A collar and leash
5. A travel crate and a home (such as an oversized travel crate)
6. Stain remover for "accidents"
7. Brush and comb
8. Puppy shampoo, toothbrush and paste
9. Chew and play toys (Cow Hooves, pig ears, etc.)
10. Nail clippers
11. Treats (puppy biscuits, etc.)
Take your new puppy to the veterinarian as soon as possible after bringing him home. The vet will set up the necessary vaccination schedule. Don't allow him to socialize with other dogs until he has had all of his shots.
A new puppy is like an infant. They require a lot of quiet rest time, in addition to exercise and playtime. Make sure he gets at least 30 minutes of exercise and playtime each day.
Your puppy will do a lot of chewing while cutting teeth, so be sure to give him a good supply of chew toys, and praise him for chewing on them. If he chews on something he isn't supposed to, tell him "no" and give him his chew toys.
Make your home safe for the puppy. Treat your puppy the same as you would an infant. Supervise him at all times. A young puppy will need to urinate after eating, drinking, sleeping or playing. If he has accidents don't punish him, but do praise him every time he goes to the bathroom in the proper place.
We feed Purina Puppy Chow (Puppy) for our puppies; we recommend you keep them on the food we feed. If you choose to change the dog food mix the food of your choice with ours and slowly wean them off our food. This change should be made gradually over a 10-14 day period. This will help the puppy/adults body adjust to the new food.
Feed your puppy the same well-balanced diet at the same times every day. Immediately after feeding him, take him to the area you have selected as a toilet area. Use the same command every time. Once again, praise him when he goes in the toilet area.
We recommend keeping your puppy on NuVet Plus. NuVet Plus has been proven to help increase your pet's longevity and quality of life, along with providing an antioxidant that gives a boost to the immune system and creates a natural defense against over fifty major diseases. NuVet is the best on the market. You can order the NuVet Plus at 1-800-474-7044 order code 83113
Love and respect your puppy. Keep him clean and well groomed. Have your puppy spayed or neutered if you don't plan to breed him. Provide regular veterinary care. (At least one visit per year) Have your puppy micro chipped or tattooed for the best kind of identification. Train him to obey and have good manners. Be sure to socialize your puppy with people and other dogs.
