as they are prone
First of all, give your baby a name. Often, puppies born in the kennel are called breeders, and it is customary that the names of the littermates begin with the same letter. This official name with the prefix in the form of the name of the nursery or breeding farm is recorded in a puppy card. For example, my rottweiler is called Miro from Floyd’s House. Some breeders come up with the most fantastic nicknames for their pets in the form of long foreign phrases.
Naturally, in a home environment, such a dog is not called by his full name, but is shortened or transformed into an endearing nickname. Sometimes the “home” name is completely different from the official record in the family tree. However, for the dog it does not matter what they call it: Baby or Monster – the main thing is that the nickname be short and sonorous. The nickname is the main repetitive sound combination that the puppy hears from the mouth of the owner. Use the nickname only as a positive incentive – for example, when you want to caress a puppy, feed or please with a new toy. After a while, having heard a familiar word associated with pleasure, the puppy will give up all his affairs and rush to your call. Continue reading
An important concern of each owner is to teach the puppy to clean. It is noticed that already three-week-old puppies specially crawl out of the den to recover. Thus, cleanliness is a natural quality of a dog. Until your puppy has passed the course of preventive vaccinations, he is forced to stay in the house. And you have to be patient, removing 10-15 times a day “traces of life” of your little pet.
Usually a puppy “goes to the toilet” soon after eating, drinking, playing actively, and also immediately after waking up. It’s easier to teach a dog to cope in a special place if its territory of movement is significantly limited (aviary, cage, fence). The puppy is taught to cope with newspapers located in a small area opposite his mattress and bowls. The kid is not allowed out of the cell until he is “marked” in the newspapers. If the puppy is trained to use the “toilet” correctly, his territory in the house is gradually expanding. Continue reading
From birth, puppies feed on breast milk. This life-giving drink entirely ensures their development and growth over several weeks. Gradually, complementary foods are introduced into the diet of babies. Some breeders use boiled cow’s milk, and then rare semolina; others recommend feeding dogs from childhood ready-made on dry ready-made diets; the third, in the future, does not recognize anything other than raw meat as the first food and main food.
According to scientists studying animal physiology, the puppy’s digestive system is not yet fully formed during excommunication; it is not able to absorb large amounts of feed and is not able to properly digest starch. Puppies should not be offered large pieces of meat, fed cold, hot, salty, fatty foods, as well as food with a high content of indigestible fiber. If these requirements are not taken into account, then symptomatic digestive problems can develop into chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Continue reading
