Bringing a new furry friend home is incredibly exciting, but don’t let their cuteness make you neglect your rules and responsibilities as a pet parent.
You still have a long road ahead of you to teach the puppy many skills in order to be safe and happy, both of you. But in general, isn’t it so exciting?
Your responsibility starts before bringing the dog home by “puppy proofing” the house. You should hide any item or food that are on low shelves, but don’t worry, it is just temporary till you teach your new roommate the needed skills to behave.
In fact, there are many amazing skills that you should teach your newly adopted dog, whether he was a puppy or a big boy.
