So how do you handle the crazy baby that you decide to share you life, love, and home with? You work. You puppy proof to try and negate damage. You use crates for potty training and safe separation. You use an assortment of toys so that the puppy does not find/make his own. You invest in (or borrow) baby gates to keep your puppy and your stuff safe. And even with all all that work he will still find a way to sneak away when you looked away and get into something.
Anyone who tells you puppies are just small adult dogs or that they are easy is clearly suppressing memories of all the work there puppy was or they have never had one.
That's not even getting into the vet appointments and how you have to be careful of parvo and them trying to eat all the things they shouldn't.
Over the next few weeks I am going to go over some common puppy issues and how we have been addressing them with Simon.
How to Potty train a puppy.
How to deal with chewing and destroying items.
How To stop puppy biting.
And dealing with the crazy puppy energy.
