Raising a Puppy

Nothing is more exciting or frustrating at times than raising a puppy. Use the tables on the previous pages to adjust your puppy's feeding, walking, and playtimes to a structured schedule. Be gentle with your puppy; it's confusing for him, too.

Puppies experience many changes and fluctuations in their hormone levels. Your puppy may be accident-free for weeks, and then suddenly have several in a row. Don't lose faith—simply go back to the structure you had in place when you were housetraining him initially.

TIP

If your puppy has an accident, do not clean it up in front of him. Use paper towels and a neutral solution to mask the odor of his urine, which can be a trigger for another accident. For urine, step on paper towels placed over the accident until they come up clean.
