As a pet owner, you want to do all that you can to make sure you are a good pet owner. This means that you will want to research the new pet you own, including how to take care of it and what to feed it. Fortunately, there are several tips you can follow if you are the new owner of a puppy. For now, let's take a quick look at these tips. 

Feeding Your New Puppy

Puppies don't eat the same type of food as bigger dogs. In fact, there are special types of puppy food that you will want to invest in. Just like newborn babies, puppies need special vitamins and nutrients. When you invest in puppy food, you can rest assured that your puppy is getting the nutritious food that it needs to grow into a happy and healthy dog. 

Puppy Exercise

Also important for your puppy is making sure that he gets plenty of exercise. You want your puppy to grow into a strong dog, and getting in plenty of exercise is an excellent way to accomplish this goal. Taking your puppy out for a walk at least once a day is a perfect way to incorporate daily exercise into his routine. 

Potty Training Your Puppy

You will want to start as soon as possible to potty train your puppy. As you have likely heard, potty training a puppy can be very difficult and time-consuming. But, if you stick with it, most puppies can be potty trained in as little as a week's time.
