Puppies: Caring for Your New Pet

There is nothing like a cute puppy (and what puppy is not cute) to capture the attention and heart of everyone. A puppy is a new family member that needs much care and attention. Are you prepared for the high demands of a puppy?

Healthcare, house training, discipline, supplies and other special needs must be thoughtfully planned. Education is key - know what to expect and be prepared! Search for websites that offer professional, expert puppy advice. Consider subscribing to educational e-newsletters that specialize in educating you about the different stages of puppyhood. Drs. Foster and Smith Pet Supplies has customized puppy emails based on your puppy's age with articles, tips and essentials.

Are you able to change your lifestyle to accommodate the needs of a puppy? Are you able to let him outside in regular intervals around the clock? Regular veterinarian bills will incurred, are you able to handle that cost in addition to expenses of basic pet supplies? If not, please consider adopting a pet from your local animal shelter. I did, and it was the right decision for our family. What's the right decision for your family? Either way, a pet is sure to add love to your home.

Here's an interesting video clip I found of 6 puppies with their mother soon after birth!
