You're getting a new puppy and now you're worried. Are you going to be a good puppy parent? You need some tips for caring for a puppy to be sure you do things right.
Be patient, but firm. Just like toddlers, puppies do not do well with screaming, angry people. They also don't do well with extremely permissive people. You want to raise a well-behaved, confident puppy that people will love to be around.
Puppy proof your home. Get down on the puppy's level to see what he will see. Phone cords, shoes, newspaper and other items that are usually low to the ground are the kinds of things that puppies think are wonderful new toys that were put there just for them. Be sure to keep electrical cords off the ground in areas where your puppy hangs out.
Make sure you have a secure area for your puppy to exercise in. One of the worst things that can happen with a puppy is having it run into the road and get hit by a car. Save yourself from this devastating experience with a fenced yard or always leash your puppy when you take it outside.
