Did a cute, cuddly canine member recently join your family? Lucky you! There is nothing more exciting than bringing home a new puppy. Those huge eyes that melt your heart, those gorgeous soft ears, those oversized feet – tripping them up as they clumsily learn how to fetch and play. There certainly aren’t many creatures cuter than a gorgeous, snuggly wee puppy.
However with a new puppy comes the responsibility that is only one step down from a child of the human variety. You’ve probably already got plans in place to manage their puppy issues, but now you’re back at work, the kids are back at school and there is no-one around to help you reinforce all the good work you have done so far and give your new puppy the care and attention they desperately need. Through the research you have done to find solutions to these problems, you probably already realise the experiences and training your new puppy has in these first few months will shape your new family member’s behaviour for the rest of their life.
