A puppy’s world:
A puppy’s world is an exciting one to see.
Along with experiencing new sites, sounds and scents, there are so many things for her to enjoy. Colourful toys to chew on. Balls to chase. Children to romp around with. New and wonderful discoveries at every turn.
Quite often, new owners will focus on a puppy’s new toys, his diet, and where he will eat, sleep and play. But there are other things to consider when you first bring him home.
Your puppy may show signs of anxiety, especially if it has just been separated from her mother and siblings. Or he may become frightened if the high-octane excitement with young children becomes overwhelming.
Puppies also seem even more unruly when their ‘milk teeth’ are replaced by their permanent teeth. By the age of seven months, most puppies will have 42 permanent teeth in place. Also, consult with your vet on any teething issues especially if he shows any signs of pain.
As with children, puppies develop in specific stages before they reach full maturity between 12 months to two years. So it’s important to have in place a behavioural program to help maintain the harmony in the home.
