FOR ALL YOUR DOG TRAINING SUPPLIES - The man who owns is a personal friend of mine and will take care of you and exactly what you need to start training on the "right track"!

THE FIRST 48 HOURS WITH A NEW PUPPY !!

1. Puppy Proof your home:

* Move poisonous plants

* Look at things from the puppy "point of view" and remove any hazardous items

* Watch out for hanging electric cords ( NOT to chew on !! )

* Make sure the kids toys are picked up and they know who's toys belong to them and to the puppy !

2. Supplies you will need:

* Its best to purchase these in advance as there are certain things your puppy will need from day one !

* Food - I highly recommend keeping the puppy ( at least initially ) on the same food he/she is on when you take her home - If its one of "My Awesome Pups" ( The best !!! ) they will be on Pro - Plan Puppy Large Breed Formula ... but whatever you feed or decide to switch to - make sure it's a premium food - not cheap supermarket brands !!

* Food and water Bowls

* Crate or sleeping bed - I always recommend a Crate !!!

* Safe, Appropriate Toys to chew on - if it fits in the pups mouth to easy/ comfortably - its to small !!!

* May need a puppy or baby gate - depending on where you decide to keep the puppy

3 Feeding:

Be Consistent - Feed your puppy at the same time EVERY day - a schedule is critical and will help !!! New pups need to be fed 3 times a day and always have FRESH drinking water !!

DO NOT OVERFEED !!! Follow the guidelines on the puppy food and increase the food accordingly as your puppy gets older and grows - Overfeeding can also cause diarrhea !!!

Try to make the transition EASY FOR THE PUPPY ! The first few days -

Decide on a name and use it consistently so the puppy learns it !

Limit visitors the first few days !!!

Keep your puppy in your site at all times for safety and to establish correct behavior!!

Never disturb a sleeping pup !

Teach the children how to hold a puppy properly- by holding one hand under the hind quarters and one under the chest !!

Do not leave a puppy unattended with children or other family pets until your SURE everyone is ready !!
