New Puppy Hints
Hints for your New Puppy
Just remember bringing home
your new puppy is like bringing home a new baby.
Limit excitement and handling
as much as possible. Puppies require about 16 hours of sleep a day. They
sleep about 3 hours & maybe play & eat about 1 hour. If they do not get
their rest they will get sick.
2lb puppies do not eat much at one time; therefore they must eat several
times a day and have a good dry puppy food available at all times. It
should have 18% or more fat. I recommend Nutri Source Small & Medium
Puppy. You can locate a store near you at
Provide lots of chewing toys.
I highly recommend using a oatmeal base shampoo (never use people shampoo) to keep hair & skin healthy.
On longhair puppies be sure
to keep the hair on their rear-end clipped for cleanliness.
Have your puppy spayed or
neutered!! This also helps if done before 16 weeks of keeping you male dog
from maturing and having the need to lift his leg to pee or worse yet hump
your friends leg.
