If you are thinking about getting a puppy, then you should know that you have to get yourself prepared for what’s about to come. Adding a new family member is not that simple or easy, but it is a very good decision. Puppies have the power to change your life forever as soon as they enter in your life. I want to give you all some advices before you get a puppy. Make sure to prepare yourself about all the dedication a small innocent pure creature needs. You have to find time, and make sure they have everything needed. Do not take this whole thing as a joke, because the more time you dedicate on your puppy while he is little, the more you will enjoy your dog, by the time he or she is a grown up. Here are 11 things you need to know before brining a puppy home:
1- You need to get a license in order to keep your puppy legally. You have to check with the appropriate authorities in your location, and follow their needed legal steps.
2- Make sure to find a well-fitted collar, and an ID tag with all your personal information on there.
3- You have to take your puppy to the Vet for regular check-ups and dog vaccines by law.
4- Your puppy needs protection from fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. If you want to keep your puppy away from health issues, this is a really important thing to do!
