Puppy Care

Owning a puppy is a big responsibility, and although puppies can be a lot of fun they require a lot of attention, love and dedication. Keeping your puppy happy and healthy throughout their life can be rewarding for the whole family and will include things such as training, exercising and grooming.

It's also important to give your puppy social interaction with other dogs and people. Dogs are social animals, and thrive on social interaction not only with humans, but also dogs and other animals. This can help their confidence and temperament.

Puppies need exercise every day to stay fit and healthy. This can take the form of walks; play dates at the park or obedience training. Puppy playtime and exercise is more than just a fun time for your puppy, it's vital for their physical and mental health.

You'll find all of these issues covered in our comprehensive section on caring for your puppy, along with many how to guides to grooming and puppy behaviour.
