- When it comes to any puppy, think about what the dog is being encouraged to do now and ask yourself if this will be wanted behavior when the puppy is bigger and stronger. So while it may be adorable when a tiny puppy jumps up on people for attention, climbs up onto the couch and gnaws on people’s hands, that behavior isn’t so cute when the puppy is adult size, with adult teeth.
- Plan to take basic training classes with your new dog. A class builds the skills for the dog and creates lasting bonds with his or her new family.
- Socializing: Have your puppy meet as many nice people and other animals as possible to learn and keep great social skills. Protect him from bad experiences. Fear causes many dogs to become defensive, and defensive behavior is seen as aggression.
- Exercise: Buck will need a lot of daily exercise, both physically and mentally, for him to be the best adult dog he can be. A tired dog truly is a happy dog (and owner!)
