Comprehensive Guide

1. Prepare Your Home:
Puppy-proof your space: Clear anything that can be chewed or swallowed by a curious pup like electrical cords, plants, and small objects.
Essential supplies: Have a crate, comfortable bedding, food and water bowls, chew toys, and grooming tools ready before your puppy arrives.
2. Nutrition:
Quality Puppy Food: We will send home a starter bag of food. We feed Diamond Puppy, if you plan to feed something else please slowly transition the food. Feed your new furry friend high-quality puppy food that is appropriate for the puppy’s size and breed.
Feeding schedule: Establish a consistent feeding schedule to help with house training and behavioral issues.

3. Health Care:
First Vet Visit: Schedule a check-up within the three days of bringing your puppy home.
Vaccinations: Keep up with the vaccination schedule provided by your vet.
Parasite prevention: We recommend minimizing exposure to veterinary drugs (such as flea and heartworm treatments, vaccinations and wormers) to the minimum dosage and frequency needed to safeguard your pet’s health.

Note: We recommend de-sexing at 12 months of age or older. 
4. Training and Socialization:
House Training: Start house training immediately with consistent routines and positive reinforcement.
Obedience Training: Basic commands like sit, stay, and come are essential for your puppy’s safety and your sanity.
Socialization: Expose your puppy to different people, pets, and environments once they’re vaccinated.
5. Exercise and Playtime:
Encourage regular playtime—it’s essential for your puppy’s physical health and mental stimulation.
Puppies have a lot of energy; regular walks and play help prevent destructive behaviors.
6. Bonding:
Spend quality time with your puppy every day.
Gentle handling and calm interactions help establish trust between you and your puppy.
7. Grooming:
Please see individual grooming tips on specific breed page. However, please note all poodle and poodle mixes will require regular brushing and grooming. We recommend brushing weekly and grooming every 6 weeks.
Remember: Patience and consistency are key. Training a puppy requires time and effort but it’s also filled with moments of joy and bonding that are truly rewarding. Welcome to the wonderful world of being a puppy parent!
