Puppy Care 101

Puppy Care

Puppy care can be a lot of work, but is also quite rewarding. This article should answer a lot of your questions you might have about your new puppy, or the puppy you are thinking about getting. Here we cover the basics you need to know.

Feeding

Most people will have received their puppy after they are weaned. But if you actually need to wean your puppy, starting at about 2-3 weeks of age your puppy should start to eat solid food. Offer the puppies solid food at least three times a day. You can start by offering dry puppy food mixed with some warm water to soften it.

When the puppy reaches about 12 weeks of age, slowly start feeding dry puppy food only twice a day. Only offer the food for about 15 minutes and then take the dish away, to train the dog for eating twice a day. Between 6-9 months of age start mixing puppy food with an adult dog food over the course of a month.

The dry food should be specially formulated for puppies. If you have a large breed puppy feed a large breed formula. But be careful not to over feed large breed dogs. If you do they are more prone to joint and bone problems. Also stay away from a lot of extra treats, and be careful not to over feed your puppy over 6 months of age to prevent obesity.

Vaccines

Vaccinating your puppy is the basis of good puppy care. Vaccines help reduce the risk of you puppy acquiring diseases like parvovirus, distemper, kennel cough, and rabies. Vaccines are given when puppies reach 6-8 weeks of age and are given every 2-4 weeks until the puppy reaches 16-20 weeks of age. Boosters are then needed every one to three years. There are many different vaccine schedules your veterinarian might use. For example you puppy might receive shots at the following ages: 6, 9, 12, and 15 weeks of age.

Puppies are usually vaccinated against: Distemper, Adenovirus (hepatitis), Parvovirus, and Parainfluenza. All of these vaccines are usually combined in one vaccine typically referred to as “the distemper shot.” Also depending on where you live, you may also need vaccines against Coronavirus, Giardia, Lyme disease, Leptospirosis, and Bordetella. Also Rabies is needed as well. Usually at sixteen weeks of age, and then boostered a year later, and then boostered one to three years later depending on the local laws and regulations. Rabies vaccine is the only vaccine that you must absolutely get for your dog. Only a veterinarian is licensed to administer rabies vaccine.

Parasites

Most puppies should be started on a heartworm preventative at least by two months of age. And now in most areas of the United States, it is recommended that heartworm preventative be given all year long, although the risk of getting heartworms is still greatest in the summer months.

Heartworm preventative is usually given monthly in the form of a chewable tablet. The most popular brands are Heartgard and Interceptor. It is important the you give this tablet every month and if you miss a month, to tell your veterinarian.

2. Intestinal Parasites (Worms)

It is important that you get your puppy dewormed. Roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, coccidian, and giardia are the most common parasites that can affect your puppy. It is recommended that you have a fecal done on your pet, and then yearly after that.

Deworming medication is commonly placed in heartworm medication these days, these include Heartgard plus and Interceptor. Intestinal parasites can cause diarrhea, weight loss, and death. Tapeworms often found around the anus of your puppy. They look like grains of white rice. These are the egg filled segments of the tapeworm.

Most flea products these days are also effective against ticks as well as fleas. The most popular of these is Frontline. It is a medication that is applied once a month to help prevent fleas and ticks. It is a liquid product applied topically to the skin between the shoulder blades.

Grooming

Grooming is also a part of good puppy care. All pets need some degree of grooming. It is an important part of taking care of your new puppy. By starting to brush and bath your puppy while they are young, they will grow accustomed to the contact as they grow up.

Crate Training Dogs – Quickly and Easily

Why should you crate train your dog?

Unlike people most dogs enjoy being in small enclosed places and so if crate training is done correctly your dog will see it as a great place to be – its own personal space. For the dog a crate can be somewhere it can escape to if things are getting too much for it, for example noisy children or if you have a lot of people round. For a dog owner the benefits of crate training your dog include the knowledge that while in your crate your dog is safe and not destroying anything, it can keep your dog out of the way while you are very busy. If you are house training your dog crate training can be very useful too as most dogs with not want to wet or soil their living area. For a dog which is aggressive towards strangers or some visitors a crate can act as a place which keeps both dog and visitors safe.

What type of crate should you choose?

There are a variety of different crate options you can choose from the most common being plastic or metal. If you choose a metal crate you may also want to purchase a crate cover to make the crate feel more enclosed and cozy for your dog. Whichever type of crate you choose make sure there is enough room so that your dog can stand up and turn round easily. If you are crate training a puppy try to bear in mind what size it will be as a full size dog. If you intend leaving your dog in the crate for some time always make sure it has water available, special water bowls with hooks can be bought specifically to go onto a crate.

How to start crate training your dog

Most dogs are naturally quite inquisitive so will probably be curious as to what this new "thing is". Use this to your advantage and place a treat or your dog's favorite toy inside the crate so the dog ventures inside to get it, do not shut the door at this stage. Keep hiding trips inside the crate until your dog is happy going inside it.

Crate training the next phase

Once your dog is anticipating the fears being inside the crate and enjoying finding them in there close the door just for a second when your dog is in the crate. Straight away re-open the crate door and let your dog come out. Practice this a few more times, each time putting a treat in the crate and shutting the door but then build up the time that the dog is in the crate each time. Praise your dog while it is in the crate. Once your dog is confident with this try leaving it in the crate for five or ten minutes while you are doing something in the same room so it can see you, we do not want your dog to think that when it goes in the crate it means it is going to be left alone. Build the time up again that the dog is in the crate but start spending a few minutes not in the room.

Crate training should be done gradually, your dog should see the crate as a good place to be and it should not be used as a form of punishment. Only when your dog is totally at ease being in the crate should you even consider leaving it alone in the crate while you go out. You do not want the dog to panic try and get out and injure itself. A dog should not be left in its crate for too long a period at a time.

Dog Training – Barking and How You Can Stop It

Don’t be alarmed once your dog begins to bark. All dogs do it as their means of communication. However, once this barking becomes excessive and appears to be developing into a problem measures need to be taken.

Traditionally, dog obedience and training schools were the answer to help remedy these problems. You would take your dog to these schools and be in groups with other dog owners and you would all be shown techniques and methods to help prevent the problems you were facing.

However, with the developments in technology you can now find everything you need to know on the internet, so less and less people are going to obedience schools.

As previously mentioned, barking is the main way a dog communicates with yourself and other animals, therefore, you should train your dog not to bark excessively, but not to eliminate it entirely.

In many cases, your dog might be barking just to let you know they he or she has smelled or heard something and wants you to know. By acknowledging your dog soon after barking, they will recognize that you’ve acknowledged them and this can help quiet them down. Additionally, at times when your dog should not be barking, you need to assert your authority.

The best way to do this is via the command, “NO”, or “QUIET”, or any word that you would like to use. When your dog barks at an inappropriate time, use the word and when your dog follows your command, reward him/her.

Your dog may bark simply because it’s bored. To remedy this, buy your dog a toy to chew on and play with. How many dogs have you heard barking when they have something in their mouth?

Regardless of the method you use, by ensuring your persistent, barking can be brought under control in a fairly short time period. Persevere now and enjoy the company of your trained dog for many years to come.
