Over the years I’ve heard “if only they came with an instruction manual” countless times. And while most of the time, “they” were human babies, I know many people wish that puppies came with an instruction manual. Puppies are adorable and amazing and will steal your heart in a minute.
Of course with all that cuteness, energy and snuggling comes loads of decisions and concerns. What do I feed him? When will he sleep through the night? How do I house train? Is this normal? Well the good news is now there’s a website to answer those questions and more! Purina ® Puppy Chow ® has the answers to these questions and more on Puppyhood.com.
If you are still in the planning phases of getting a puppy, I hope you’ll consider adopting a rescue puppy. All breeds and sizes are available from shelters and breed specific rescues. It may take a little time to find the one you want, but it will be worth it. If you are going to buy a puppy, please make sure you are buying from an ethical breeder. Check out the Puppy Planning section to see suggested supplies, tips for selecting the right breed for your lifestyle, and ways to puppy proof your home.
Puppy breath is intoxicating and those needle sharp teeth are cute, but without supervision, puppies can cause a lot of destruction. Puppyhood.com can help you set your puppy up for success with training tips and by helping you learn what to expect as they mature with puppy milestones.
Nutrition is key to any growing body and puppies have different nutritional needs than adult dogs. It is important to remember that even if a puppy looks like it is fully grown, she will need a special formula until she is done growing on the inside as well as the outside. Purina Puppy Chow offers a unique healthy-start blend made with high-quality protein, plus DHA and essential nutrients also found in mothers’ milk.
