1. Please take the time to train your new pet in obedience. If you are unable to train your new pet, we highly recommend bringing them to a professional trainer. A well trained, obedient dog is much happier and so will you be! Dogs LOVE to please their owners and by being taught what is expected of them, thrive on following those directions. We have read multiple Dog training books. There are many good ones out there.  Since there are many views on ways to train a Puppy/dog, you will need to find the one that fits your views.  The MAIN thing is to BE CONSISTENT.  And if something is NOT working, clearly- it is not the method to use!  Try a different method ASAP.  The sooner that a Puppy/Dog learns only good habits and unwanted habits are corrected/stopped- the Happier EVERYONE is- including and most importantly- the Puppy/Dog!   We start the Puppies here with the 'Treat based' training method and Early Nearuological Training method among vast socialization etc- called 'PUPPY CULTURE. We also have used other training methods with our older dogs at times, and adjust all training methods to the nature of each individulal dog.  This is very important.  Use the right methods for your Puppy/Dog's nature.  All Puppies however GREATLY Benefit from Puppy Culture!      Puppy Potty Training- AKC Link 

2. There are many high quality pet foods out there. See below for the ones that we use. Do your research and talk to your Veterinarian about what is right for your pet. PLEASE NOTE: Whichever diet you feed your new puppy/dog, it is ESSENTIAL that you ONLY feed them what is their required amount! Overfeeding/growing too fast is not healthy for any Puppy/pet.

3. Fresh air, exercise and sunshine!! The GREAT OUTDOORS! There are many studies showing the vast benefits of spending much time outdoors and your new pet/s can benefit along with you. Although each of our breeds adjusts to a more sedentary lifestyle indoors; the pros, health benefits, and enjoyment of spending as much time as possible outside are endless.

4. Bring your new pet to your own Veterinarian as soon as possible after bringing them home. Even if you choose the more natural 'minimal to no vaccines' route, it is essential that your new pet is followed in health throughout it's life by a veterinarian. Do NOT overfeed your dog. Choose a rigid feeding program and follow it. It is very important that your pet gets the right amount of vitamins, minerals, food and not too much of them.

5. We highly recommend continuing to crate train your new pet. While they may be introduced to the crate here, some take a little longer to complete their crate training and will need intermittent crate sessions to completely learn to love their quiet/peaceful time in the crate. There are many sources on the web about proper crate training and chapters in dog training books. Please study these methods, it is important that you do it correctly. Crate training your puppy aides in much quicker potty training, gives them a safe cozy place to rest, and is very useful in traveling and other situations!! It is wonderful when they quietly love their crate for a little nap etc! It keeps them safe in certain situations and is beneficial in so many ways!
