If you raise a puppy during Covid, you will have some unique challenges and issues to consider. Like human babies, our puppies have different developmental stages that need our care and attention, so they grow up right. This requires additional research on our part. Below are some recommendations on being a good puppy parent right in the beginning.
When you bring your covid puppy home, it’s essential to keep in mind that they will not be mature enough to deal with all the things the adult dog will one day be able to handle. Having said that, it’s also essential to keep them mentally stimulated. This will help them understand boundaries and tolerate being left alone better than if they weren’t stimulated as puppies. DogTV is an excellent resource for new puppy parents and will keep your dog entertained throughout the day, whether you’re at home or at work.
Training with CookiePal Treats
We have a little secret for you: There are no “bad” puppies! All dogs are adorable, intelligent, and can be wonderful companions, even when they are stubborn or aren’t behaving correctly. Nothing a little training can’t fix! Sometimes, all it takes to train a puppy is the right yummy treats that will get them excited to do their task. We love COOKIEPAL treats that are human-grade and organic, so good even you can eat them!
Busy lives can be stressful in an ordinary world. Covid has made it even more stressful for puppies and owners working remotely. As parents, it is sometimes easier to want to keep our puppies in our sight and care 24/7. However, this isn’t the healthiest practice for our puppies. Puppies need socialization with other dogs to learn how to play, and mannerisms to use throughout their life. Having a too attached puppy causes them to become a “Velcro dog” and doesn’t give them space to relax or time to learn. Taking your pup to daycare or getting a dog walker during the middle of the day is a great idea for puppies that are at home all the time.
So, there you have it—the basics of bringing home your new puppy. It will take time to get your furry friend to get acclimated to living with you. Once the bond is formed, we guarantee that your new pup will be an indispensable companion.
