Training

A new puppy won’t understand where they’re allowed to pee and do their business, and this is where potty training comes in handy. A simple way to give potty training to your puppy is to take them outside whenever they want to do their business and reward them with a dog snacks if they can go out and do their business by themselves. Be patient as it can be quite frustrating to train them.

Attention

Now that you’ve taken care of the essential parts of having a puppy, it’s time to get to the fun part which is giving them attention. Since they’re still a puppy, they’ll be clinging to you, and this is the perfect time to shower them with love, and also walks. Remember that they’re still a puppy so don’t over exhaust them.
