Puppies are a huge commitment, regardless of how cute they are! These furry fluff balls start out as nipping, yipping, pooping, peeing, yappy, snappy whirlwinds and it’s YOUR responsibility to turn them into happy, healthy and safe dogs. Not much to ask, huh?

Training your puppy to grow into a confident, calm dog takes time, effort and lots of patience to make sure that he doesn’t develop any behavioural issues. Sadly, once the novelty cute factor has worn off when puppies reach adolescence, behavioural issues land many dogs in the local shelter or stuck in the garden by themselves for the rest of their lives.

It’s important to consider whether you have the time and patience to spend in training your puppy in being a ‘good boy’ before you bring him home. Make sure you do your research and everybody in the household is on board in helping socialise and care for your puppy and you are well on your way to having a positively perfect pup!
