If you want your puppy to grow up into a happy, healthy dog – and who doesn’t? – you must feed it well.
Help your puppy learn that when you say “Sit”, it should sit down! With a little patience and lots of treats and praise, you should soon be able to train your pup to sit down on command.
Every puppy should be vaccinated as soon as it is old enough, as this defends against some very nasty conditions that can cause serious illness and even death.
Going to the toilet is one of the most natural things in the world, but you will need to spend some time helping your puppy understand when and where it’s OK.
Fleas are tiny parasites that feed on the blood of animals, or sometimes people if they get the chance.
These unpleasant parasites, which make their home inside your puppy’s body, might have been passed to your puppy by its mother.
Being able to get your pet to lie down is one of the key dog training skills so give it a go!
You will find it much easier to control your dog throughout its life if it masters the art of staying put, and it’s much easier to train a young pup than an adult dog.
