One of the first things you want to do when you get your new puppy is take it to the vet for a check up.  Most puppies have worms from birth so you want to make sure that your puppy doesn’t have worms.  The best time to start training your puppy is from the first minute they come into your home and start interacting with you.  Grooming your puppy at an early age is important.  It is a good idea to start brushing your puppies teeth at a young age.  It is important to keep his teeth clean.  If you start brushing their teeth when they are young they won’t mind having their teeth brushed as they get older.  There are special toothbrushes and toothpaste for puppies.  They have a special finger toothbrush that you can use which makes brushing their teeth easier.  You can buy special toothpaste that is flavored.  Don’t use human toothpaste as it can cause ulcers in their stomach because they tend to swallow it.  Puppies have a lot of problems with their ears.  Take a piece of  tissue and clean the areas of the ear that you can see.  You should handle your puppies feet often so that when they get their nails trimmed they will be used to having their feet touched.  You can trim their nails with a finger nail clipper.  Just take the very tips off.   Make sure your puppy has a supply of water throughout the day.  Most importantly make sure your puppy is nurtured and safe.
