Getting Ready for A New Puppy

Puppies are curious and often teething, so use these tips to create a safe early doglife.

1.    Put breakable items, plants, cords, medicines and cleaners up high or make sure they’re securely fastened.

2.    Use a baby gate to limit your puppy to only safe spaces. 

3.    Make sure you have all the essentials like a leash, collar, carrier and plenty of chew toys. 

4.    Your new puppy has specific nutritional needs, so be sure to pick treats suitable for puppies.

Puppy Tips

As your puppy grows, be sure to check these tasks off your list for a safe and healthy puppy to doglife transition.

1.    By the age of two months, your puppy should be tagged, microchipped and have their first vaccines.

2.    At three months, potty training should begin. Crate train when you’re not at home and when you are, be sure to take your puppy out for frequent walks. 

3.    Four months is a great time to start teaching your pup basic manners and training commands like sit, stay, leave-it and down. 

4.    Be sure to reward any training sessions with Milk-Bone® treats suitable for puppies
