Transcript of Puppies

Taking care of your Puppy-
Puppies need a lot of necessities just like we do in life. These include food, hygiene, and visits to the vet. By doing these things,you can not only improve your dogs well-being, but you can set your dog up for a very safe and fun future.
Newborn Puppy Intro-
Food for your puppy-
Taking your puppy to the Vet-
.Puppies will need to be brought to vet in 8-10 weeks after he or she has been born. While at the vet, a lot of things will happen such as a physical exam to make sure your puppy is healthy, de-worming, and some shots to prevent certain diseases. After your first visit to the vet, your puppy will get a couple of booster shots when your puppy reaches a certain age. The time between these shots is 2-4 weeks. Your puppy will also need a lot of other shots like:

Booster Shots- The Rabies vaccine is the only shot required by law for your puppy to have. It is usually given 12-20 weeks after your puppies birth depending on the vet you have.
The Lyme Disease vaccine
Leptospirosis vaccine
Coronavirus vaccine
The Bordetella vaccine
Your puppy and sleep-

Your puppies sleeping pattens can vary greatly. This depends on your puppies breed, size, and amount of activity your puppy gets each day. Younger puppies will have a more erratic sleeping schedule than adult dogs, but this can be fixed by training. Puppies are very curious because of all the different smells, sights, and sounds of the unusual environment around them. This can cause your puppy to be neglectful of their sleeping habits. Puppies can become cranky, quick-tempered if they haven't slept in a few hours, so it is important to train your puppy as he or she gets older for not only their benefit but yours also.
My Favorite Breed-
I really like a lot of different breeds, but my favorite has to be the Rhodesian Ridgeback. I like this breed because first of all I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Bella and I also like them because they are used in South Africa to herd lions.
Birth of the Puppy-
When puppies are first born they are blind, deaf, toothless, and are unable to regulate their body temperature. Puppies usually depend on their mother and litter-mates for warmth to conserve the young puppies temperature. This is because puppies can quickly die from hypothermia- which is the lowering of ones body temperature. This is why puppies separated from their litter cry loudly to their mother for their attention.
Cleaning your puppy-
Cleaning your puppy will require a lot of steps. These steps are:

Brush your puppies coat to remove any loose hair.
Pick a good shampoo. This is to prevent your puppy from getting fleas, ticks, or allergies. If you know your puppy has any three of these, it is recommended to pick out a specific shampoo to deal with your puppies problems. If your puppy is not suffering from anything, pick out a mild shampoo because many puppies are allergic to shampoos containing certain chemicals.
Get your puppies coat nice and wet, then apply the shampoo. Applying the shampoo is a simple process. First, make sure to start with the head and start to go down his body. Also, massage the shampoo into areas such as his or her front legs or neck. For the best results, use both your thumbs or your fingers to massage the shampoo in a circular motion.
Wash the head and face. This is a extremely important step if your puppy has any flea or tick problems. This step will not only make it easier to get rid of as many fleas or ticks as possible but also will wash their body and make them cleaner and more refreshed. *Inside your puppies ears is the area most prone to fleas and is the favorite hiding spot for them. Puppies with big ears are more likely to get ear infections and other diseases than puppies with smaller ears if their ears are wet inside.*
Rinse your puppy until the water from his or her fur runs clear. Then rinse one more time to make sure your puppy is clean.
Get a small or big towel, lay it over your puppies back, and rub your puppy dry. It is important to get the inside of your puppies ears also to prevent infection. A puppies usual instinct to shake themselves dry, so be careful in drying your puppy. *A puppy is not usually washed the right way until the hairs inside its ears are sticking out.*
Exercising your puppy-
Every puppy loves exercise. Puppies often do not have enough muscle tone to take long runs so you should know of your puppies limits. Here are some ways how you can know of your puppies limits.

Be sure that your puppy does not overheat
Be consistent with exercising your puppy.
Be cautious with your puppies feet like on hot pavement or sidewalks.
Be aware of your puppies limits so you should try to know of. your puppies stamina.
