Teach Children New Puppy or Dog Care
If your family has children and a new puppy or dog, the following tips may be helpful as you teach them to
care for their new best friend
1. Remember to feed the dog and give him fresh water each day.
Explain that dogs, especially puppies, need nutrition each day for
energy and proper growth. Explain not to feed food harmful to dogs
such as chocolate, raisins and sweets.
2. Be gentle with your new pup or dog. Younger children may be rough
with puppies and dogs. Pulling tails and ears may cause a negative
reaction or harm your pup.
3. Teach your child about the importance of exercise with the family
dog. This includes regular walks and playtime in a safe outdoors
environment, away from traffic and distractions.
4. If you have a rambunctious puppy, make sure your child doesn't
leave things lying around. Puppies love to chew on whatever they
can sink their teeth into.
5. Keep bathroom doors shut. Dogs are notorious for drinking from
the toilet bowl. And it is NOT good for them to drink bacteria
6. Dogs need to have potty breaks outside. Puppies may use puppy pads
during the training process. Keep a schedule of 'bathroom' breaks
for your dog.
7. Make a chart of tasks do routinely and daily so it will be easier
to remember the needs of your new best friend
Taking care of a puppy or dog is a big responsibility. Teach your
children that just as they have to be taken care of by parents, their
pet has to be taken care of as well. Our pets depend on us every day.
