How to care for your new puppy?

1 Mar

Introducing your pet into the family is one of the most beautiful experiences that you will ever have. The day when you start planning about getting your own puppy, the kind of reactions you will get from your friends and family will range from over enthusiasm to hatred. However, once you have made the decision, there is no way anyone can take that bundle of joy away from you.

However, getting a dog is a big decision. You have to care for it just like you would a baby. A dog usually lives up to 12 to 15 years depending upon the breed that you have chosen. This means you have to dedicate a lifetime of service and commitment towards it. However, rest assured that you will get a lot of love and appreciation in return.

What kind of a person are you?

Before you get down to buy puppy or decide to Buy Dog it needs a reasonable amount of thinking regarding your own requirement from your pet. Do you need for a lovely companion who will just cuddle with you all the time, or do you want a guard dog who will always be watchful and alert to help you out when you are alone?

Today, the internet gives us the opportunity to look up the information regarding every breed which can prove to be very helpful to you in taking the big step. Being the proud owner of a couple of black German shepherds and a tiny little beagle myself, I can tell you that the best way to go about looking for your pet buddy is to ensure that you speak to a vet or visit a dog hostel in Bopal and look up a dog site before hand so that you know what you are dealing with.

It breaks my heart to see so many dog owners who buy puppy or buy dog with great enthusiasm but neglected it once it grew up. We have to learn to accept that our puppies will not stay in that size forever. They will need for us to be there watching out for them even once they have grown up. Reach out to a dog kennel in Ahmedabad to get an idea about how your grown up puppy will look like.

Are they grown up when they grow in size?

A surprising little detail about dogs can be that they grow in size pretty easily. So even though your dog looks all grown up on the inside, it is still pretty much young on the inside. One general rule of thumb is that one dog year is equal to about 7 human years. However, this too can vary with the size of the pet.

For small to medium sized dogs, one year could mean anything between 4 to 5 years. What I am saying here is that your pet will appear to have grown up fully in size by the end of 18 months; however, it will still have the mind of a 10 year old at that time. You will have to give it the time to be stupid and to discover a few things on its own.

How they see the world

Puppies quite literally ‘see’ the world not through their eyes but with their mouth. They need to sniff things and put them in their mouth before they can appreciate what it is. Therefore, make sure you don’t have any chewable wires exposed which can hurt your puppy seriously. On the whole, don’t leash him up all the time, but be vigilant so that it doesn’t hurt himself too easily.
