Things To Consider Before You Purchase A New Puppie
Puppies will chew on things. If you do not give them something to chew, then they will chew on what they find.
- Never let your puppie decide how things should be, you are it's leader and owner. You must teach your new puppie rules and boundaries, just like a small child needs to be taught. What may be cute now as a puppie, may not be cute once they are an adult dog. So start training early.
- For help with puppie training please seek a local trainer. Also please read your comprehensive puppie care guide, Included with the purchase of your puppie for more information and tricks for training your new puppie.
Puppy supplies you will need
Please gather supplies Before you pick up your puppie.
One mistake new puppie parents make after picking up their new puppie is going right to the nearest pet supply store to get their supplies. Smaller breed such as Chihuahua's get stressed very easily. Combined the stress's of leaving their litter mates and mother with going to a public place and hearing and seeing tons of new things is a recipe for disaster.If encountered by another dog, eight to twelve week old puppies haven’t received all of their boosters yet and exposure to diseases like Parvo and Distemper can be very dangerous.
