So you have gone out and adopted a new puppy. It was love at first sight. Your puppyis the most adorable puppy in the world.You feel quite lucky to have found such a happy, playful, inquisitive little guy that fits into your family great. But did you know that all those little quirks that you find playful and inquisitive, while cute now that he or she is ten pounds, can become very bad habits once they have grown into adulthood and weight more than sixty to eighty pounds. I used a large breed example,but the same can be true for a full grown twenty or thirty pounds. Even a five to ten pound companion, with poor mannerscan reek havoc on the public.

Its cute that the puppy is pulling on his leash now, but when he is older and has more weight behind him, it can become a hazard. A well behaved companion can even accompany you in some neighborhood stores. Having a pet that is well behaved will be less likely to cause incidents in public. If your puppy knows how to sit on command and does not run from you, even if playfully, he or she is less likely to be hit by a vehicle that may not have seen them. That is just one example but there are many other reasons for having early puppy training.
A few other reasons include reducing the incident of fighting when meeting other dogs. I would consider this a light reason, because bad manners is a small reason behind fights. Continue reading

With the economy nowadays a whole lot of price range conscious family pet owners now appear to be obtaining a cheap pet insurance policy of some kind. This can be a very good move because showing your family pet how very much you love him or her shouldn’t be financially tough on you.
To begin with, let’s discuss why you have to cover your dog with inexpensive dog or cat insurance coverage.
Your dog or cat could regrettably be in an accident that may leave him or her injured to a point needing emergency surgical care. But what have you been planning to do when you do not have adequate bucks to invest for his or her operation?
Getting a new puppy can be exciting for the whole family. You can’t wait to get the puppy to its new home so it can play and become familiar with its new owners. But wait! There’s one thing you forgot about – house training! Training your puppy to “go” outside is no picnic, but it is much easier with the use of dog cages.
Dog cages or dog crates enable you to provide a bed and small “home within your home” for the puppy. The cage will be the puppy’s own space, sort of like a dog house when outdoors. A crate can serve several purposes. It gives the dog a safe, secure place to sleep. A cage makes training a lot easier because dogs usually won’t go to the bathroom where they eat and sleep.
