Owning a Puppy Means Fostering Positive Habits
Owning a puppy is a lot more than just playing with your new pup (even if that’s the best part):
- Waiting an hour before offering food to your new puppy. It needs some time to adjust to the new environment.
- Exhausting the puppy with play and potty breaks before bedtime. “It’s normal to hear some crying and whining when you leave it alone,” said Gajkowski. “If it doesn’t settle after an hour, take it out again.”
- Taking it to the veterinarian. Preferably, do it the next day to make sure your puppy is healthy.
