Omg a puppy. Now what?
One thing I didn’t know: puppies are in full quarantine mode until they’re vaccinated. They can’t just go anywhere and do anything. They can’t walk on grass. They can’t walk on the floor at the vet or at a pet store. They can get sick. They can die.
Another thing: During this quarantine they need to be exposed to as much sh*t as possible. People, dogs, other puppies, babies, more people, car rides, the vacuum. You name it.
It’s a weird conundrum called socialization. And if you don’t do it right, your puppy can have big problems…when it’s bigger.
