National Puppy Day!

Happy National Puppy Day, everyone! This day is dedicated to celebrating the adorable,

fluffy, and energetic little balls of fur that have stolen our hearts. Whether you're a first-

time puppy owner or a seasoned pet parent, there's no denying the joy and love that

comes with raising a puppy. In honor of National Puppy Day, we're going to talk about a

few important things you should keep in mind as you welcome your new furry friend into

your home.

Best time to start training is right away.

One of the most crucial things you can do for your puppy is to start training them as

soon as you bring them home. Puppies are like sponges; they soak up everything they

see, hear, and experience in their environment. The earlier you start training your puppy,

the easier it will be to teach them good habits and prevent bad ones. Potty training,

crate training, and basic obedience training are all essential skills that your puppy needs

to learn. It's important to be consistent and patient when training your puppy, and

always use positive reinforcement to encourage good behavior.

Puppies are a lot like babies - they need a lot of sleep and potty breaks.

Puppies require a lot of care and attention, just like babies. They need plenty of sleep to

support their growing bodies and brains, and they need frequent potty breaks to prevent

accidents in the house. As a general rule, puppies need around 18-20 hours of sleep per

day. They also need to be taken outside every 1-2 hours during the day to go potty. It's

important to establish a routine and stick to it, so your puppy knows what to expect and


They grow quickly, so enjoy them while puppyhood lasts!

Puppyhood is a magical time, but it doesn't last forever. Puppies grow incredibly fast,

and before you know it, they'll be full-grown dogs. It's important to cherish this time with

your puppy and enjoy every moment you have together. Take lots of pictures, play with

them, and create special memories that you'll cherish for years to come.

Adolescence starts at 6 months.

As your puppy approaches 6 months of age, you may notice some changes in their

behavior. This is because adolescence starts at around 6 months, and just like human

teenagers, adolescent puppies can be a handful. They may become more stubborn,

independent, and prone to testing boundaries. It's important to continue training your

puppy during this time and to remain patient and consistent. Don't give up on your

puppy, even if they seem to be regressing in their training. This phase will pass, and with

expert guidance, your puppy will mature into a well-behaved adult dog.


In conclusion, National Puppy Day is a great time to celebrate the love and joy that our

furry friends bring into our lives. But remember, being a puppy parent is a big

responsibility that requires a lot of time, effort, and patience. By starting training right

away, being consistent with routines, enjoying the puppyhood phase, and being

prepared for adolescence, you can ensure that your puppy grows up to be a happy,

healthy, and well-behaved dog. Happy National Puppy Day! Contact us at Morgan’s
