Proper puppy care is the foundation for a healthy, happy, friendly and confident adult dog.
Give your pup the best possible chance of living a long, active and healthy life by making sure that he gets what he needs physically, emotionally and socially.
These simple steps help you to do just that:
You can't beat the feeling of bringing a new puppy into your life. It's so exciting, and totally magical!
But once the magic wears off the realities of taking care of your new pup can become frustrating, confusing, even worrying at times.... and it often seems as though Rascal isn't the only one who's doing a lot of learning!
The good news is that taking care of your new puppy is much easier when you understand what he needs, why he needs it, and how to give it to him.

This slideshow gives you a glimpse of the incredible physical changes a Labrador Retriever puppy goes through in the first year.
My love for dogs (of all ages, sizes and dispositions!) is the passion that drives this website, and I hope it will make caring for your new puppy a fun and worry-free experience.
It's a time of new beginnings, high hopes, love, laughter and cuddles - so don't forget to enjoy every minute of your Rascal's puppy-hood while you can. He'll be a big boy in no time at all.
And remember, if you 'get it right' during this first year your little guy will grow up to be a confident, friendly, well-adjusted dog that you can take anywhere... one you're proud to call your best friend.
