How to Care for a Puppy

Prepare your home before your puppy arrives. This includes puppy-proofing your home to remove any potential hazards, such as electrical cords, small objects that could be choking hazards.

Get the necessary supplies. This includes food and water bowls, a leash and collar, a crate or kennel, a bed, toys, and grooming supplies.

Feed your puppy a high-quality diet. Puppies need a lot of nutrition to grow and develop properly.

Take your puppy to the vet regularly. Puppies need a series of vaccinations and dewormings to protect them from diseases.

Socialize your puppy. It is important to expose your puppy to different people, places, and animals from a young age.

Train your puppy. Puppies need to be taught basic obedience commands, such as sit, stay, come, and down.
