Default New pup

Hi everyone, hoping you can give me any tips and advise for when I get our new puppy in a few weeks.

I already have a JRxChihauhau dog who is almost 4 and new puppy is JR bitch with a touch of Yorkie!

Can you remind me of what I need to know, I have forgotton the puppy times!

I missed present dog's annual booster injection this year as was advised it wasn't necessary. Do I need to vaccinate him with the new pup coming?

How do I integrate new pup with present dog?

Remind me of what I feed him and how many times a day - everything and anything really.

Thankyou

Hi ya and welcome to the forum. Yes you really should get your other dog his shots before your new puppy comes home. With this sort of thing it's best to b safe than sorry.

With feeding it's best to feed three small meals 3 times a day, as with what food i would arsk the breeder what they feed and carry on with that as to not upset the puppys tummy.

As with intrducing puppy to your other time don't leave the a lone and if the play get to ruff seperate until they came down. NEVER leave them alone together even at night time.

The puppy with aslo need to be taken out ever hour to the toilet as they can't hang on that long at a young age.

That's all i can think of at the moment hope it's of some help. Keep us posted of how things are going, and post lots of pics of both your dogs we luv pics and can't get enough. Glad you found us and anything alse you wont to know just ask. Enjoy.

Thankyou!

Really helpful, yes I'd forgotton all those things.

Sure there is lots more I need to remember!

If it is best not to leave them together, would it be wise in that case to crate the pup?

I'm not sure about crating as i never used it with my two. Freckel my 4 year old sprocker sleeped up stairs in our room and the puppy sleeped in the kitchen, and when we went out Freck had the run of the house except the kitchen and thats where the pup was left, at night when my pups cryed i just left them to it also i never got up to let out to the toilet in the night. I just put paper down and left them to it. they were both trained at night with in a couple of months. There are others on here that have done it different with the same results so it's just getting the rigth formula for your pup.

I gave you a link in new members to an excellent website. Over the years I've had 2 pups come to live with us & the resident dogs at the time were 7.5 yrs old. They had to be watched together & as blunder paws said don't leave them alone. There could be some jealousy & a puppy may annoy your other dog & he could snap at her. You have time to read the book in the link before your puppy comes home.

hello and welcome, i am not as experienced as a lot of the other members, but i have just recently gone through puppy stages and am still going through.
i fed my pup 4 times a day at the beginning as he was very young when we got him, i crate trained him some very helpful advice here ( http://www.dogforum.org/showthread.php?t=5196 ) and have now a four and a half month old pup that is house trained whines when he needs out and since a week has the "run" of our bedroom during the night and does come up to wake us if he needs out.
i think blake is just more than eager to please and loves his mom as he wakes hubby up when he needs out lol.
i think just as in humans things differ from pup to pup and the best advice i can give you as a newbie myself is to read as many different oppinions give them some thought and then pick what you feel most comfortable with as every dog owner does things differently.
i am sure there will be more good advice coming, and good luck with the new pup and i hope you will enjoy your new family member

Luke is four months of pup.
Besure you put up the values cause puppies LOVE to chew. You should have a stock of things that are OK for them to chew on handy. Watch your pup like you would a child that can crawl and get things in its mouth. They will.. and when you think its safe to turn your back.. or go potty.. That is when they get into trouble.

and make sure you get them outside every hour cause messes arent fun to clean...

Ohh and dont forget above all focus on PRAISING your pup. That way they know they are pleasing you. That i found is the fastest way to train!!

Good Luck!!
