PUPPY CARE


Your new puppy will need a lot of attention & care for the first few weeks.
They will be very lonely when on their own missing the fuss of brothers & sisters.
It is not uncommon for them to cry for the first little while if left alone for long.
But as they get used to being without mom & siblings to snuggle up with they will soon sleep through the night.
They may also seem a bit shy for the first little while as well,
with their strange new home & strange giant people.
Please make sure plenty of kibble & water is available at all times when your puppy is small.
Especially with the little Chihuahua puppies.
Due to their small size they can perish in a very short time without constant nourishment.
You will get a starter kit
with your new baby.
containing food, info, etc.
Make sure your puppy has lots of toys & things to chew & play with so they do not start on things not to be chewed.
Make sure you socialize your new baby.
Meeting lots of new people & animals & being made a fuss over will make them friendly & outgoing.
( First make sure they have all shots or your vet gives the ok.)

*IMPORTANT*

NEVER

play roughly with your new puppy!
This is the MAIN cause of aggressive behavior in adult dogs.
The first time you here your new puppy bark is a special event for most people, but remember not to encourage him or you may have a barker on your hands.
Never encourage behavior in your puppy that you do not want in your adult dog.
Please don't blame the breed or breeder if
YOU RAISE
an ill behaved or unsociable animal!
Puppies are a clean slate.
Its up to you to teach your baby & start your puppy off right,
so they will be a great pet & companion.

GROOMING


It is important to bath & groom your puppy.
If you start when he is small it will be much easier as they grow.
A nice warm bath with a good quality flea shampoo once a week will keep them clean and parasite free.
Make sure to dry them well so they dont get a chill.
This is most important when they are small & in flea season.
Topical Revolution is also a wonderful product for keeping your pet free of most parasites.
When they are grown a good brushing once a week will keep them tangle & loose hair free,
& just a bath when needed.

POTTY TRAINING


This can be quite a simple task if you remember that after a nap & shortly after a meal or drink they will need to go.
If you put them on their news paper, piddle pad or in their litter box at these times they will soon learn to go themselves.
Keep it close at hand at first & slowly move it to its permenant location.
Our puppies are already used to using news paper & we are told they do train quite easily.
