Dogs + Puppies

  • To prevent undesirable behavior, the first step is to establish a daily routine that answers all your puppy's needs such as walks and exercise, social bonding, play and training, feeding, and sleeping. The rule of thumb for dog training is "set the dog up for success".

  • When you bring your new puppy into your home there will be a period of adjustment. Your goals should be to help your puppy to bond quickly to his new family, and to minimise the stress associated with leaving his mother, litter mates, and former home.

  • Dogs are basically social animals that enjoy the company of their peers. Well-socialized canines are also comfortable around people and adapt readily to various situations. Sociable dogs live happy, care-free lives, so how can you help your dog become better socialized?
