Some early and proper puppy training will go a long way to ensuring that your new puppy is a good fit in your Highland Park home.

You’ve had a couple weeks now for your new puppy and the family to get acclimated to each other. The idea that your new puppy isn’t a good fit in your Highland Park home wasn’t something you had seriously considered.

Now, reality is setting in. Puppies aren’t all fun; they also come with responsibilities. They have wants and needs. And they aren’t born with proper etiquette for living in a home.

What should you have considered?

  • Puppies don’t come housebroken
  • Puppies need food and water
  • Puppies need to learn proper boundaries in the house – to stay off the furniture and not to chew shoes and valuables
  • Puppies need attention – bonding with their owner(s), playing fetch, other games and learning social skills
  • Puppies require medical attention – their shots, checkups and more, if they get sick
  • Puppies need accessories – age-appropriate doggy toys, a collar and leash, and bedding
  • Puppies need training – train them early and they’re more likely to fit in your Highland Park home

Handle these responsibilities well and, not only will you not have to worry that your new puppy isn’t a good fit, you’ll discover that puppy ownership is a wonderful experience that adds value to your and your family’s lives.
