It’s very exciting to welcome a new pet into your home however, it’s not so exciting to clean up after your new puppy or stay awake for many nights with your new puppy or lose those favorite pair of socks or shoes. Your new puppy is going to be a joy and a challenge—to say the least.

Think of your new puppy as a newborn infant who needs to be taught everything by you!

The first thing to remember is that the puppy has been living with his/her littermates and mom for the past 8-12 weeks and doesn’t know anything but their previous comfortable, safe life. Now, they will be taken from that life and brought into a new, strange and very scary environment. For many nights, he/she may cry and whine because they are scared of being alone and miss everyone.

We are not big fans of crate training even though other people swear by it. However, your puppy needs somewhere safe and secure where they can stay and sleep and eat and not be overwhelmed by lots of noise and movement for several months. This is also the place where you will be potty training. So, it needs to be an area where you can put down newspaper and not get upset when the puppy uses this area as a toilet. Your puppy will not reasonably be able to hold their bowels or bladder until they are about 5 months old (or older sometimes). Please don’t be surprised about this—the puppy will mature at their own rate and their muscles will simply not be mature enough until at least this time frame.

Potty Training

This is a fascinating time that might make you run for the hills—or call me screaming! During potty training, your puppy will need to be taken outside several times each day. Most young puppies can urinate and defecate ten times or more per day. So, when you get up in the morning, the puppy needs to go out first thing, then after breakfast, naps, playtime, lunch, dinner etc. As they mature, the number of times will become less frequent. You can also train your puppy to tell you when they need to go by taking their paw and saying ‘out?’ and scratching their paw on the door or try hanging a bell on a string and train them to use it. Keep in mind though that if you don’t RUN….they can’t hold it!
