My children have been asking for a dog for years and it has been over 20 years since I last had a dog and he was already 6 months old when we got him back then. So having a puppy in the house is kinda like a new baby all over again. First there is pad training, feeding, crate training, pet nutrition, dog walking and everything that comes along with raising a little puppy.
This is truly a new experience, so any of you puppy training experts out there, feel free to send us some Puppy Training Tips!
We are overjoyed and elated to welcome our newest member to the family. I found out today was #NationalPuppyDay, we started early and rescued our puppy from a shelter. Rescue dogs are a great way to adopt a new pet and save the animals. Make sure they have all of their immunizations, because you don’t want to risk the dog contracting any viruses or life threatening illnesses.
Pet adoptions from rescue shelters give dogs, cats and animals a second chance to find a home where they will be loved and cared for. Rescuing an animal from a shelter also gives you a chance to help minimize the number of dogs, cats or animals that are euthanized every year. They just want our love, care, patience and attention to give them a fighting chance at survival and to live out their years as a happy addition to your family.
Considering a pet adoption – Check with you local city and find an Adoption Event near you. There are several events being held this weekend, check your local listings for more information. Here are a few websites to get you started:
