Congratulations! Now what? Take it one hour, one day at a time. This week will be hard, and it is pivotal you spend the first week getting acquainted with your new pup.

Like having a child, you need to understand the full responsibility a dog is. Although I’ve grown up with family dogs, I’ve always known that when I grow up, I wanted to be the primary dog mom.

We flew our 5-month-old puppy cross-country on a 6 hour flight. Although we don’t advise for you to take your pup on that long of a flight for the first time, we took a huge risk.

I vividly remember the first time my puppy vomited. It was around 2AM, but I knew something was wrong many hours before. He was shuffling around in his crate and not falling asleep.

Walking a dog looks so easy! It should be a walk in the park (literally), right? Oftentimes, walking on a leash is one of the hardest things new dog owners are surprised about.
