This article provides an understanding of what to expect, how to make the most out of this year and few ways to celebrate this fantastic journey.

Understanding Your Furrylicious Puppy’s First Year

Your puppy’s first year is a whirlwind of growth and development. From a helpless 8 week old to an energetic adolescent, they undergo significant transformations within twelve months. It’s an exciting time to observe and cherish as they discover the world around them and develop their unique personalities.

The Importance of Positive Reinforcements

Positive reinforcement is key during this formative period. Equipping them with basic obedience training, introducing them to social situations, and practicing good behavior are all crucial components in shaping their character and behavior.

Nurturing Health and Well-being

Physical health is equally important. Regular vet visits, appropriate nutrition, and adequate exercise and mental stimulation will help ensure their optimal health and well-being. Remember, a healthy pooch is a happy pooch.

What should I feed my Furrylicious puppy in the first year?

Feeding your pup high-quality puppy food specific to their breed size will ensure they get the necessary nutrients for their growth and development.

Are there specific veterinary checkups required in the first year?

Yes, your puppy should have regular check-ups and vaccinations as advised by your vet. Also, regular flea and worm treatments are necessary.
