New Puppy Tips
TRAINING YOUR NEW PUPPY
Aussies are super smart and easy to train. For better or worse, they learn EVERYTHING you teach them. They quickly pick up the patterns and routines of your family and know just when things are supposed to happen. This is because they are dogs that are great at taking care of and rounding up herds of animals.
When it comes to training: start early, keep calm, be consistent, stay positive, and repeat.
IS THAT SAFE TO EAT OR CHEW?
We highly recommend Kong dog toys, as they are nearly indestructible! We love them! High-quality tennis balls or sticks from HARDWOOD trees (such as oak or maple) are great back yard fun.
Please do not give your puppy rags, socks, or towels to unsupervised. This includes when in a kennel. Any puppy can easily tear off small bits and swallow them. This can block their intestines and cause serious harm.
HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU FEED YOUR PUPPY?
The decisions you make about your puppy’s nutrition will affect his growth, development and even his behavior.
Feeding your puppy a high-quality puppy food helps set him up for a long and healthy life as an adult dog. Sunset Hill Aussies is a proud partner with Purina Pro Plan Breeders. We use Purina Pro Plan Sport for our active farm life and Purina Pro Plan Puppy for the little ones.
