Schnoodle Puppy Diary – Day 3


Posted by Schnoodle Mummy | Posted in Puppy Training, Schnoodle Breeders, Schnoodle Puppy Diary | Posted on 26-02-2013

Well today has been a day and a half.  My new little Schnoodle puppy Ted woke me and the whole house up at 5.00am.  The good news is his crate was dry, very unexpected for a 9 week old puppy who has a tiny little bladder.

He was worn out from his visit to the vets last night and he is still a bit tender from his first jab.

Today the dog behaviour specialist came over to do a house call to check on Ted’s progress and give me some tips to try and make the crate training easier.  Ted’s breeder didn’t use a crate but I wanted to, although it is a first for me too.

We have had lots of visitors since Ted’s arrival and he is a very sociable dog who loves the company of people.  Unfortunately his little needle like teeth and sharp claws made my grandson cry today but the tears were soon wiped away by the offer of a candy bar.

Being a life long dog owner is never quite enough to prepare you for the arrival of a new little bundle of fluff, it still feels like a new journey but hopefully a very long and happy relationship.

My little man is all curled up in my arms, fast asleep and very contented.

New Puppy

Obviously in the last few weeks we have featured a couple of litters of Schnoodle puppies available in the UK from experienced breeders and all have now gone to their forever homes.

New Puppy

New Puppy

I know myself when I have got any of my dogs as new puppies in the past I have been like a ‘new mum’ and have made myself a checklist of all of the items I needed, right down to a new bed.

Getting a puppy is one of the most exciting times I have personally experienced, almost as exciting as having your ‘human baby’. Bringing home that lovely cuddly bundle of joy and excitement is awesome.

So where do you start, what do you need in your Luxury Puppy Bed Starter Pack Well, to start off with, a soft, draft free bed, a food bowl, a water bowl, a lead or leash, a collar or soft harness and some suitable toys, specifically designed for puppies.

When arriving home I have heard and experienced an unsettled night where the pup pines for its Mum and litter mates, this can be overcome by putting on a radio, quiet volume, or by wrapping a ticking clock in a towel or pillowslip and popping it in next to the pup along with a ‘warm’ hot water bottle.;

Alternatively you could buy a Fleece Heartbeat Pillow and slip it in with the puppy into their bed, also available is a Microwaveable Puppy Cuddle cushion

One of the most recent developments for puppy owners is the disposable puppy pads.  Unlike days gone by when the floor would be covered in old newspapers cleared away when they got soiled. Puppy Training Pads are a great tool for the new puppy and they quickly get accustomed to using the pad, impregnated with a scent to encourage the pup to use them.

Finally, I would highly recommend the book by Ian Dunbar Before and after Getting Your Puppy: The Positive Approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy, and Well-Behaved Dog for the new puppy owner

Other items you may be interested in for your new puppy include Foldable Travel Puppy Crate, Puppy Teething Rings, Puppy Training Treats

A Kong Toy

Your new puppy is not dissimilar to a human baby, it will use its mouth to explore surroundings and objects.  Teaching acceptable behaviour is part of the learning process and you as the adult have to help them learn.

It can be very frustrating for a new puppy owner to come home to find your shoes chewed up, but then leave them lying around and puppy will see them as a toy.  Read the rest of this entry »
