Caring For Your Puppy

The privilege of puppy ownership marks the beginning of an incredibly exciting and rewarding journey.  But on this wonderful journey that you and your puppy are on, you will both encounter pitfalls, set-backs and dead ends.

Puppies to come to us with a readiness to please and full of fun and excitement to explore the new world in which you have brought them.  It is our job to guide them through this with a gentleness, kindness and when required firmness.  This will allow you, your family and your puppy all to flourish and mitigate or prevent any causes for stress or difficulties in the relationship as the puppy grows.

Just like parenting there is no such thing as an absolute expert but we learn as we go along.  Nevertheless it is worth doing as much research as you can so as to be as knowledgeable as possible before bringing your little bundle of fur home towards us all becoming pawsome puppy parents.

The Puppy Portal aims to provide a doorway to success on this journey by providing some resources to help through information and well-researched reviews of guides and products.  Each puppy is absolutely unique but visiting a breed guide will provide further insight into some of the behaviors of your pup as they develop into full-grown dogs
