One major concern during this unprecedented time is properly socializing your dog. Canines need to be good citizens in the world we (normally) live. New owners must realize that once released from the confines of home, our pets need to function confidently and thrive in a populated environment.
One of the most unwelcome surprises of puppy ownership is the pain those tiny little chompers, all 28 of them, can inflict on a hand or foot. Mouthing/teething is an integral part of growing up for pups; they investigate their world with their mouths and use those teeth for playing and chewing.
Puppies are a lot like human children – the amount of time, expense, and emotion you will invest during the first year of ownership is astounding and what you put in is what you will get out of your relationship with your new companion.
