Puppy Care Tips: Housebreaking can be a time-consuming process. A puppy should be taken outside every two hours, up to six times a day, particularly after meals.
Crate training provides your puppy with a secure, safe area where he can retreat when he’s tired. Put in some soft bedding and even a treat to help coax him in at first so he learns it is a good place to be. A crate is not to be used for discipline or punishment.
Puppy proofing is very similar to baby proofing—keep your puppy away from anything that could potentially hurt him.
Spay or neuter your dog. This reduces the chances of cancer of the reproductive organs and is recommended by veterinarians to pet owners who do not plan on breeding their pets.
Take him to your veterinarian for a complete physical. Puppies need vaccinations every 3-4 weeks until they’re 16 weeks of age. Your veterinarian is your No. 1 source for questions regarding your puppy’s health and behavior issues.
