Your new puppy will bring you lots of joy for years to come. S/he will be a close companion, a playmate, and a reliable friend.
However, this does not happen without some effort. You should begin to train him/her even in these early days, so that s/he becomes a welcome addition to your family. Not unlike a baby, your puppy requires regular feeding, sleeping, playing and training. Of course, this means that your new puppy will need lots of attention and care.
We realize that new dog owners have many concerns. So we have put together this Puppy Information to get you off to a good start. Included are basic tips on your pup's first day home, house-training, health care, feeding, behaviour-training and crate-training.
Please Note that with this guide, we have only scratched the surface. For more complete details, there are plenty of good books available, and obedience schools have a wealth of knowledge.
