There is a huge selection of toys. Ones that can be washed in the washer with a little bleach are nice. Beds and toys can be chewed so keep your eyes on them.

You need to find out from your breeder what food the puppy is on and where to buy it. Do not change the food your puppy is on quickly. You have to change it slowly by mixing a tiny amount of the new food you choose to use to the food the puppy was eating at the breeders. Gradually add the new food and add less of the original food. At the end of at least 15 days your puppy will be switched over to the food you have chosen.

Do not be too anxious to give a lot of treats to your new puppy. They can upset their digestive system. To avoid causing allergies or upset stomachs until the puppy is 6 months of age try not to give it anything by mouth other than the puppy’s food.

Once puppies are weaned from their mothers they no longer tolerate dairy products very well and it is best not to give them to your dog anymore. No milk or eggnog. Cream Cheese, and cheese products are hard to digest and can cause pancreatic problems. Hot dogs and lunchmeat are loaded in nitrites and salt. One of the biggest No-No’s a great number of people do is feed their dog’s inappropriate foods thinking they are good for them. Fatty, salty, chemically enhanced dog treats are not good for your dogs. Please do not feed them to them.

Only use doggy toothpastes made for dogs and do not use human dandruff products on your dog. Use products that are made for dogs. Any products you buy read the instructions and follow them before using the product on your dog.
