Are you planning for a new puppy or currently sharing your life with a furry bundle of canine joy? Then mark your calendars for March 23rd, National Puppy Day! “While we’re all softies when it comes to our four-legged friends,” according to nationaltoday.com, “today is also designed to raise awareness about puppy mills and help prospective pet owners consider adoption.” So, for puppy guardians-to-be and new puppy parents, the TransPaw Gear team has compiled our top five puppy pro tips to help your family start out on the right paw.
Puppy Pro Tip #1: Make sure you have the right gear.
Puppy Pro Tip #2: Management is key.
Think about setting up puppies’ environments so that you can monitor them and make sure they’re making good choices – chewing on the right objects and digging in the right place, for example. Smart, humane, creative management allows you to prevent active youngsters from doing what you don’t want them to do. It’s also key in house-training!
Puppy Pro Tip #3: Provide enrichment.
Safe, enriching spaces and toys will help teach puppy to be independent and enjoy “me time.”
Puppy Pro Tip #4: Stay up to date on health and wellness.
Puppy Pro Tip #5: Teach emergency behaviors.
Here’s to many happy years of unleashing adventures and harnessing fun with your new puppy!
