Big shout to my friend Crystal for helping with pics! Hope your office friends
get there cutness fix !They were taken Sunday . I know a bit behind. Few more tips ,then I 'll post pics and saturday's
You will need bowls, leash , collar
, washable bedding, collar tag, and your sanity to stay in tact.
about the crate, the crate beds are best because there washable and the pups tend
to be able to rip them to shreds.
You can start treats with just milkbones
at first and move on from there, beagles are very intelligent and resond to getting treats as you teach them. Just leave you
hand bare off and on so there not getting to many treats.
Spaying and neutering
happes about five /six months old, you can have your beagle microchippped at that point . This does help with temperement
along with no unwanted pups.
They will a few more visits to the vets until
there boosters are done, Keep then away from other unknown canine friends until there immune system gets those shots. Rabies
by law has to be done and you will probally need to register with the town.
sure you make an appointment within five business days of pick up with your vet. You can change food if you do not care
for Purina but do that gradually to avoid upset stomach.
Your pup may get sick
in the car on way home, bring whipes , towels ect. Its car sickness and pup shoujld be fine once in your home.
DO NOT CRATE TRAIN FIRST NIGHT... baby your new baby ... start training sunday night etc. Make sure
to block off an area for your puppy ( not just the crate(. THey get INTO EVERYTHING and letting them have run of the house
is not advised all the time.
HAVE Children.... NO PLAYING WITH HANDS. ALWAYS
BE THERE TO SEE INTERACTION BETWEEN PUP AND CHILD. Young children can be afraid because puppies have sharp teeth and claws.
Children should not be allowed to keep picking up a puppy , wethere it belly or hind legs. Your pup is not stuffed toy
, they will get hurt .
Always let pups and children know what's expected
of them. Puppies are balls of energy but to a young child getting jumped on or pulled by it's pant leg from the pup can be
scary. NO kids in crates thats the pups safe zone.
MAKE A PLAN WITH
THE HOUSEHOULD on who's doing what...who's do the hour a day exercise, who is taking out puppy in the am , who is doing in
the pm. IT WILL BE MUCH EASIER if you can get a break . Housebreaking is constant ... obeciance can be daily ( After they
get out some energy) . So much easier !
THE DREADED CHEW PHASE..consult
with your vet on what chew items are best. You want to keep that mouth with new teeth coming in happy ! TRUST. I'ts a TOUGH
PHASE BUT YOU WILL GET THROUGH IT. There is items you can freeze.....bones . As far as toys it's up to you . They do
like balls , stuffed toys they can unstuff ( grab the squeeky however once they tip it open) Kong toys last longer and you
can fill with peanut butter etc. Getting the toys is the fun part !
Your puppy will only be a piranaha for a limited time, stick with it ! They also like to challenge you around 6-9 months.
BE ALPHA !
Enjoy your puppy they grow fast but the great thing about that
, is you now have an adult beagle! A new family member you can enjoy so much with , more even not that there trained.
I would try a doggie school ,,, petsmart has them. It' good for young dogs to be socailized and the trainers can help you
if your needing help in an area. Okay off to do pics and schedule
