January 9, 2024! This cold snap has increased the need for intake substantially. We need to find some of our puppies forever homes to make room for the ones waiting to come in. Puppies can bring so much joy and love into your life, but it’s important to remember that they also require a lot of time, effort, and commitment. Here are some things you can expect when bringing a puppy into your home:
1. House training: Puppies need to be taught where and when to go to the bathroom. This process requires consistency, patience, and positive reinforcement. It can be a challenging task, but with time and effort, your puppy will learn. 🐾
2. Skills training: Puppies need to learn basic commands such as sit, stay, and come. Training sessions should be short, frequent, and positive. It’s important to establish boundaries and teach your puppy what is expected of them. 💗
3. Socialization: Puppies need to be exposed to various people, animals, and environments to develop good social skills. This includes proper introductions to other dogs, experiences with different sounds and sights, and positive interactions with people of all ages.👍
4. Exercise and mental stimulation: Puppies have lots of energy and need regular exercise to stay healthy and happy. Daily walks, playtime, and interactive toys can help keep them physically and mentally stimulated.😀
5. Love and companionship: Puppies thrive on love and companionship. They are highly social animals and need daily interaction, affection, and bonding with their owners. They can provide endless cuddles, playtime, and unconditional love in return.☺️
