Life is all about the little things, the minuscule moments that make you smile and laugh and be grateful, and nothing is better at making those things happen than a puppy. They are the epitome of joy. It doesn’t matter what size, shape, color or breed they are, they are little dream makers. But while that is the case, they can also be a handful.

That is why we have come up with a list of little tips and tricks to help make your entry into puppy-parenthood that little bit easier. Enjoy.

Get To Puppy-Proofing Your Home Right Away
It could be that you’ve got a spritely young pup from a litter, or an older hound from a rescue home, it really doesn’t make a difference; you still need to make sure your home is a safe place for them to be. This is going to seem like pretty weird advice, but try dropping down to puppy height, shuffling about a bit and looking for any hazards that may be dotted about. This will be stuff like wires, cords, vases precariously positioned on the edges of coffee tables; that sort of thing.

They Are What they Eat
Much like humans, a dog has gotta eat. But unlike humans, they don’t just get to eat anything. In fact, what they eat is hugely important and can differ massively depending on breed, age, sex and loads of other little variables you would never consider important. As such, head to your local pet store, or vets, and find out from the professionals what is the best food for dogs. But don’t just concentrate on the main meals because having healthy doggy snacks and treats are going to be crucial too.

All The Gear, No Idea
When you first get a puppy, it can all be a bit confusing. There is so much stuff to choose from it is almost overwhelming. But there are a few things that we can class as essentials and these are the things you’ll need to get your paws on as soon as possible. Things like a collar, a lead, a car crate, a cozy bed, bags for the poop, toys, and chews and then whatever else you decide you cannot live without.

Quick Trip To The Local Vet
As soon as you get yourself a dog you need to trot on down to the local vet, or a far away vet. Where doesn't matter. What does is that you go with your new pooch. As a dog-owner, you have responsibility for that dog’s health and well-being, and that means you need to make sure they are up to date with vaccinations, have the right medications, know how much they should be eating and drinking a day, how active they should be, and just garner an unwavering peace of mind that your dog is all good on the health front.

On You Marks, Get Set, Train
It’s the tough task that all puppy-parents have to go through, but the earlier you set the rules the better. As a little tip, dogs respond best to positivity and consistency, so make sure you are consistent and positive. Simple. Also, make sure you have treats on you to celebrate good behavior and obedience.
