– NEVER call your puppy to you if you do anything she might perceive as negative such as discipline, medicine, leave the back yard, a bath, etc. It takes only one time to teach them NOT to come!
– As soon as she has her final vaccinations, start playing with other dogs in a SAFE and fun way! If you go to day care or the dog park, be VERY careful! See my dog park guidelines.
– Do not run or ride a bike with your puppy before 18 months of age. Her joints are still developing and can be damaged.
– Your puppy should sleep in the same room as you, for at least the first few weeks/months in order to bond with you.
