Puppies – Always remember that all your puppy wants to do is please you. Spending time with your pet is easy. Sit on the floor while watching TV and gently handle the toe of each paw, ears, nose, and have the vet show you how to open it’s mouth and look inside. In addition to developing a bond of loyalty this will also establish a bond of trust to allow you to remove cactus from paws, porcupine quills from paws and mouth, put medicine in ears, etc.
REMEMBER to introduce a variety of chew toys! Your puppy will chew. You may have to work to get it to chew what you want it to. If you can teach your puppy to retrieve this will also double as exercise. Most breeds have high energy to do whatever they were bred for and definitely need exercise daily whether traveling or not.
