Every dog has its own personality just like we human beings do have. And if you are considering to own a new Canine Puppy at home for yourself or maybe for your family. Then you should know at least a ton of things before you get a new baby home.Just recently, we published on how to choose the best breed dog, but we felt that find the best perfect dog for your family is one thing, but owning a dog and feeling the responsibilities of a dog is another. So, this article will just cover that.
What you should consider bringing a new Puppy Home
Getting a puppy is adorable and cute but it’s also a real challenge. The last thing I want you to do is to get a puppy and end up regretting it. So here are eight things you must know before you get a puppy.
1. Dealing with Depression
Every individual is depressed in their life and well, Puppies are not different. In-fact, Puppy depression is quite common and I’m not talking about the puppy being depressed talking with you.
You have all these expectations that you and your puppy are going to be cuddling on the couch and next thing you know the puppy just wants to be alone in the kitchen. This is very normal. Don’t have those feelings of buyer’s remorse. Give it time. Allow the puppy to acclimate. Training takes patience.
2. Feeding a Puppy
Feeding a young Poppy is really tricky. You have to feed them up to four times a day especially ones as big as a bear. A lot of people think they can just be freely feed their puppies leave a bowl of food and the puppy will figure it out.
No, your puppy will become obese. And then guess what. Every time your puppy Eats it needs to poop so your house is going to be covered in poop. And have you ever seen a new face poop?
3. Puppy Needs Walking & Exercise
Walking / Exercise for a puppy is no easy feat but he’s extremely important. Doesn’t matter if it’s raining if it’s snowing you still have to walk your pocket. And most people get their puppies around 10 weeks of age which means that a walk is necessary every three to four hours.
So if you’re working an eight-hour workday maybe a puppy is in for you when walking your new puppy.
4. Puppy Leash
You may come off rude to other dog owners because you can’t just let your puppy play on a leash with other pups. It’s going to turn into trouble leashes are gonna get tangled someone’s going to get bitten. Not a great idea. Plus it’s no good if you want a well-behaved pup.
5. Bathing a Puppy
Come on pup go bull-like dogs get dirty. I mean bear when he sees mud he not only walks in and he lives down in it he rolls around the day he drools in itself but thankfully you like taking baths so it’s not such a painful process but some dogs hate baths. So it’s really got to be personality dependent. You really shouldn’t use human products on your dog.
No human shampoo I know the human hair dryers special dog dryer it’s not too hot and it essentially blows the water off the dog. And it’s not just bathing. You’ve got to brush him, and you’ve got to clip his toenails. This is a true time commitment.
