TOP 10 Entries For best suggestions (In No Particular Order):

  1. Katelyn Brockmiller — My advice is 1. Take the first week off work when you get a new puppy to show them love and that you want to commit the time to them. 2. Start training day 1 of bringing your puppy home. You will have the perfect dog with these two key steps.
  2. Emily Sneed — 1. Take plenty of pictures within the first couple of weeks. They don't stay little long! 2. Begin introducing your puppy to your daily normal sounds on day one. (Our pup is still scared of the noise a water hose makes and air released when a bus comes to a stop) 3. Devote as much time and love to your puppy as you can! Moving from momma is a big adjustment for them and they need extra attention.
  3. Cindy Robinson Reese — Get him on a schedule as soon as possible. Going out every 3 hours.
  4. Brenda Johnson — Be patient, firm, and consistent....all in a loving manner!
  5. Traci Clayton Eddings — Consistency is key!! and crate train they love a safe place!!
  6. Rachel Savage Wick — Excercise, discipline, affection..... in that order for a well balanced happy dog.
  7. Judy Hester — Spend time with your puppy, show them how much you love them, have a schedule and have patience
  8. Janet Johnson Akil — Make sure the puppy gets a lot of exercise! It's important so they can explore and sleep better at night!
  9. Jennifer Koch — Pick a specific place for your puppy to go potty and he/she will continue to use it and make for easy maintenance!
  10. Sonya Harth — Feed your puppy quality food, always.
