                                               HOME A PUPPY!
                                                 A new furry friend can be a bundle of joy, but a canine
                                            companion comes with the responsibility of guardianship.
                                            Be certain that you or the recipient is ready for such a
                                                Before you bring your puppy home, have these supplies
                                            on hand:
                                                  – A Crate is an invaluable tool when housebreaking a
                                            puppy. It also provides your young dog with a sense of
                                            security when you are busy or away. However, never leave
                                            a puppy in a crate for longer than 4-5 hours.
                                                – Bedding should be thick enough for comfort and sized
                                            appropriately for the breed. Be aware that some puppies
                                            that are left unattended for too long may chew their bedding.
                                                 – Baby gates serve as a great training tool to block off
                                            “restricted” areas of the house and help to teach your puppy
                                            what areas are off limits.
                                                – Dog-appropriate toys, like the puppy-sized Kong TM,
                                            are the smart choice. Never use old clothing or shoes as
                                            toys; a puppy cannot differentiate between your old and
                                            newly bought items. Stick with size-appropriate toys for your
                                                – Two dog bowls: one for fresh water and one for quality
                                            dog food. Consult your veterinarian for food
                                                 – A well-fitted collar and leash are a must for training
                                            and safety during outdoor excursions. Avoid chain leashes,
                                            a soft cotton leash is a better alternative.
                                                 – A pet ID tag allows your puppy to find his way home
                                            should he roam. You may also want to microchip your
                                            puppy at your next vet visit.
                                                – Brushes and dog shampoo will eventually be needed
                                            for every breed.
                                                – An odor and stain eliminator is a cleaner you will want
                                            on hand for those inevitable toileting accidents.
                                                   – A veterinarian should be researched and chosen
                                            beforehand. Introduce your new puppy early to the vet and
                                            learn what vaccinations he will need.

                                            TIPS FOR “PUPPY PROOFING” YOUR HOUSE:
                                                Remove potential hazards – anything that would make
                                            an enticing chew toy – such as power cords, potted house
                                            plants, shoes and clothing and anything “bite sized” that
                                            could be ingested by a curious puppy! Outside, remove bite-
                                            size rocks, sticks, fertilizers, gardening tools and
                                            equipment. Also, be mindful of toxic household and garage
                                            items, such as antifreeze, detergents and tobacco products.
                                               Move anything cherished or breakable to higher ground.
                                                Get on your hands and knees – at the puppy’s view – to
                                            look for potential problems.

        A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an
audience, raised a glass of water and asked, “How heavy is this
glass of water?”
   Answers called out ranged from 8 oz to 20 oz.
                                                                                       PRINT & STUFF

carry on with the burden.”
