puppy care

Congratulations on getting a new puppy! Taking care of a puppy can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience, but it's also a big responsibility. Here are some puppy care instructions that can help you give your new furry friend the best possible start in life:

Provide a Safe and Comfortable Living Space: Make sure your puppy has a comfortable and safe place to sleep, preferably in a crate. The crate should be big enough for the puppy to stand up, turn around, and lie down comfortably, but not so big that they can use one side as a bathroom and the other for sleeping.

Feed a Nutritious Diet: Your puppy's diet should be balanced and appropriate for their age, breed, and size. You can consult with a veterinarian to get advice on the best food and feeding schedule for your puppy.

Regular Exercise and Playtime: Puppies have a lot of energy and need regular exercise and playtime to stay healthy and happy. Take your puppy on short walks and play games that help them burn off energy and stimulate their minds.


Socialisation and Training: Socialisation and training are essential for puppies to develop into well-behaved, happy dogs. Introduce your puppy to new people, dogs, and environments in a positive and controlled way. Enrol your puppy in a basic obedience class to teach them basic commands and behaviour.

Regular Vet Visits: Regular visits to the vet are important for your puppy's health. Schedule appointments for regular check-ups, vaccinations, and preventative care such as flea and tick treatments.


Regular Grooming: Regular grooming is important for your puppy's health and hygiene. Brush your puppy's coat regularly to remove loose hair, and bathe them as needed. Trim your puppy's nails, clean their ears, and brush their teeth to prevent dental problems.

Love and Attention: Finally, remember to give your puppy lots of love and attention. Puppies need lots of affection and positive reinforcement to feel secure and develop strong bonds with their owners.

By following these instructions, you can give your puppy the best possible care and set them up for a happy, healthy life.

The puppy should see a vet monthly until fully vaccinated, then at least yearly for check-ups and to maintain its health.
