5 Essential Things to get before even bringing home your Dog/Puppy

Hello! everyone! Here is another post on pets, 5 Essential things to get before even bringing home your dog.

Recently, one of my friend just bought a new pet puppy! I was so excited even thou I want it so much but after today I learn a lot of things which I don’t know about getting a puppy. As I always have adult dogs from people who can’t keep them. From all this time I had experience about dogs stuffs, things and I always wanted to learn new things also to know what are the important for having a pet.

Let me share with you a bit of her character and some things that I found out on having a puppy for the first time. Hope this will be useful for first timer who are going to have a puppy as first pet.

Of cause if you are getting a puppy, there are some things that you need to have in order to trained them and let them get use to a new home. If you are getting a dog, I think shouldn’t be much worry or have to? But depends on the dog if its well-trained I think shouldn’t  be a problem. But just take your time and let them know what they do is right or wrong, I bet they will be trainable and well-known after a while 🙂 As for what I experience before. Even though is not easy at all but is just takes time ^^.

Pet Toy

The toy is a chewing toy, more to play with her on the ground. For now she is too small to play rough toy or action like throwing of balls and all.

Is good to have at least one or two toy to play with. Can also slowly trained them and play with them cause they are active when you put them on the ground.

Isn’t she cute? AWWW. she’s so soft and cuddly. When I carry close to me, she is like a gentle little pal. But she is super active when she is on the ground with her favourite toy.

We were busy the whole day looking for accessories and all the needs stuff for the puppy to be in a good and comfy home.

We’ve prepare a cage which is a metal type, it has 4 side and just have to gather up together and it will look like a cage or Can get a cage which is fixed one, might come with a peeing tray I guess. As long there is space for them to rest and potty.

Potty Trainer

First few things we buy was the Potty trainer spray. This one is to prevent the odour smell when your puppy pee on the floor or etc. This works well cause I can’t really smell pee on the mat.

Puppy Trainer

Next will be this Puppy Trainer drop. This one has a strong smell. Just drop 1-2 drop on the peeing pad. To let the puppy smell so that they will know where is the right place to pee. It works after a while.

We did an experiment test:

When we put the peeing tray in the cage, the puppy choose to pee on the wooden mat. We found out that each time she pee is always the same spot. Cause we put the peeing tray on the right side of the cage, and she use to pee on the left side. So what we did was, we shifted the tray to the left side instead. And it works! she got it and she keep pee on the correct spot on the tray itself.

How wonderful! In just one day she made it to pee on the right spot!

This drinking bottle was recommend by the pet shop owner. She advice that is good to let puppy learn to drink on the bottle. The reason is because the puppy is still young and is easy for them to drink on the bottle. And also they will look cleaner on the mouth area the water won’t go all over the mouth and the fur too.  Let them have 1 week or more to get use to it.

Pet Hardness, leash, collar is a must. Because you will need to bring your pet for a short or long walk. Or maybe around your house garden if you have a big one.

If you have big garden, that will be the best to let you dog run around and play. Of cause if you pet need to go for exercise for walk, make sure you do so. Because once you bring them out, you will have to be consistent to bring them every single day. After awhile this will be their habit. Once you never bring them out, I don’t know? maybe they will feel sad. Ha Ha.

Why choose hardness and not just collar with leash?

I used to use collar and leash to bring my dog for walk. But I realise is better to use hardness than collar leash. Cause it may hurt the neck of the dog when you try to hold them back for running away too fast or etc. Especially on the road side, is dangerous when your dog get excited and just dash thru the road. It may cause accident of the innocent.

Maybe for puppies to be safe, will advise to use a hardness to bring them for walk. But for dog, you can still choose to use hardness. Hardness are good for all dogs, but to be safe try to use a hardness. Which I feel is better than using collar and leash.

Potty Pad

This is a Potty pad, to use it on the potty tray for the puppy to pee. It’s helps for potty trained and the pad will absorb to prevent it smells and also easy to clean up.

Indoor potty is very important, cause you don’t want your dog to mess up your house when you bought them home.

Potty pad also great for elderly dog, sick or disable dogs, and for owner who need to work long hours. You won’t have to clean up so much after a tiring day of work.

These are some of the things that you will need before you get a puppy or pets. Do remember animals is for life. They spend their lifetime with you. Do give them great care and more love to spend and keep the happiest moment as memories. Is just feels great to have a pet in your life. They can be your greatest friend. Especially when they can understand your feelings and cuddle. Some dogs are smart thou.

Happy Pet-Owning!

How to choose a Dogs for Beginners

These are the few that need to be considered before you think of getting a pet dog.

Most important part is, have to be considerate if you have children or others who are allergic to fur stuff. Might want to consider having Hypoallergenic Dogs. The size of the dog also one of the important to take note of, you won’t want to scare anyone in your house thou. Especially when you have children or newborn babies. I mean is good to have babies growing up with pets. Such wonderful memory which I feel that’s so sweet to have them playing together having fun!

Are you ready to have your first dog? To spend your life with him and be you dog champion!

Breed

There are a lot of dog breed to choose from. From dog breed to dog type, maintaining to training for beginners is quite difficult for them. It takes a lot of time and patience to look after a dog friend. They are like your lifetime partner, spending the happy moment, teach them and give them a wonderful life like they always deserve it! If you love Pets, cherish them like a treasure. Because they have a personality just like Humans.

Some are friendly, some are fierce. Some are really playful but some are easy to train.

Some may need more care on high maintenance like grooming or bring them out just like daily exercise for them. As they also love to run around the backyard and spending time together. Also with low maintenance where there’s no need to be worried about as they will somehow look after themselves at home or even families too.

Or if you do love small breed dogs, some small space area that will be fine too. A large breed is mainly for big houses and some may use up electrical too like Husky. They may need Air – condition space. So have to make the right choice and to make sure you plan everything for them.

Most of the dog’s lover loved to have a big dog family and very responsive with their champion. However you will love to mix them around with other breed dogs, good mixer dog are the best choice. If you want to have puppies with just to make sure you approach a vet clinic for advise first before you start breeding, especially for beginner dog owner.

Size, Traits

Maybe you will know the size comes along, for large for sure is big size, as for small breed it will be small size. Knowing what type of dog you want or the breed, it would be easier. Small breed with small size you can bring around or carry it with a dog bag would be good. As for my experience, if you are taking outside transport is better to bring a bag but if you have your own transport, that would be the best to bring without a bag is up to your choice. If you cannot decide what breed to have best, you might consider medium size breed dog.

A large dog will need a big space for them to run around and a space for a rest area. Huge large with a long tail will need ” wagging tail” with big space too. To prevent from tail injury or damage of household objects.

And comes to the most slightly hard to afford part which is the expenses of your dog. Especially for those who loved dogs and willing to keep them and have them to spend the rest of your life with them, some come with poor finance and wanted to have a dog. Sometime don’t have to buy a dog. I have dog that given from my neighbour all along and I did my very best to give them the best meal and life with them. “The Power of Love”. Can really see that how much I really love a to have a dog.

Just remember to give them the right meal and the right dog food. Do ask a dog assistance for advice before you buy anything which you are not very sure about it. Small breed dog will defiantly lesser expenses. But for large breed will be quite hard to afford to cause their meals is the super big amount. For advice, you might need to consider wisely before you thought of having a large breed. Most headache part is the medical bill. If you didn’t take good care of them, all the expenses will go to the medical bill, and it’s gonna be a disaster.

Before you set out to look at puppies, you will need to do a lot of research and make discussions. This is the only way to help you Ensure to find a puppy that has the traits, size, and shape, personality to fit your lifestyle.

Best is to sit down and discuss with your families members some important point:

What you want from a dog

How much time do you have?

What type of dog do you prefer, Big or small breed type, hairy or non-shedding

A non-shedding coat means you have to pay for professional grooming throughout your dogs lifetime, Long haired silky breed you will need to carry out grooming session every day by yourself.

Some point you have to get advise just to make sure you have the right choice. Because this is gonna be with you for the rest of your life, life spends with your dog are so important to them.

Ask yourself are you willing to make all this commitment? As for character Wise, consider carefully what traits your future dog should have. Talk to dogs owner for some advice if you can. They might have some experience and ideas together.

Energy and exercise 

Think about your character, what kind of character are you. Are you as sporty as some of the dogs who love to walk, run around, love to play and exercise? Or are you quiet person who love peaceful and spend more time with your dog indoor in the backyard hanging around with your Neighbour dogs. Getting energy level right is important. If you are a person who is not really sporty and would prefer a dog to lie down and do nothing most of the time, then don’t choose working breed.

Find out how much exercise your choice of dog will need. One of the best ways is to check out with your friends or Neighbour who have a dog breed that interest you, get to know them well cause this can give you useful insights into both benefits and downside of your chosen breed.

Grooming

This is the most basic care for a dog, it’s also very important to their appearance, like nails. This is one of my most concern since I have dogs. As for what I know, if you didn’t do the nail trim when is needed, it may grow longer and once longer it might hurt them and at that point of time, it may cause blood and it can be very painful.

As for the puppy, you will need a supplement for the start. Cause it may need to take extra care and if you want to train them well, you will need to put in a lot of heart and patient. Accompanied is the most needs. They may want more attention from you and this will affect their behavior each time they grow. Maybe need to get those care products like cleaning of eyes, ears. These are all important too. If you are planning to go on grooming once or twice a month, they should be no problem. But if you know how to use those products by yourself, make sure you read all the instruction carefully before using it, to give extra careful, this is really much of my concern. ^^

So this are the few points which you need to know before you want to have a dog. Hope this infomation helps you!

HAPPY DOG-OWNING!
