Caring for your new puppy
Ask for our free puppy packs! with free product and information about house breaking, diet, etc.
So, you’ve got a puppy. A couple of kilograms of love, energy, enthusiasm and fur! There are few things that compare to the sight of your puppy running to greet you, his/her face alive with joy and excitement, tail wagging, bounding along on those little unstable legs. But with ownership of your pup come a lot of responsibilities – the responsibility to safeguard his/her health, to ensure that your pup’s behaviour – as he/she grows older - is acceptable to the people around you, and to keep him/her safe from unexpected dangers (e.g. cars, strange dogs, etc). So how can you meet these responsibilities?

Caring for your Kitten
Bringing home a new kitten is an exciting time for everyone in the household.
This little bundle of fluff will entertain you as it plays around your house and garden. Even the most simple of items can entertain your kitten for hours on end. Items such as paper bags, ping pong balls, boxes and screwed up newspapers are simple examples.
When you first bring your kitten home, it will take them a time to settle in. It is a good idea to have a place ready for them with a bed, food bowls and a litter tray. Kittens are quick learners and generally know instinctively how to use their kitty litter, though occasionally they may need encouragement!
They should be kept inside until at least a week after they have had their last kitten vaccination. If you would like your kitten to have time outdoors, then let them out a little at a time, initially under supervision. It is a good idea to let your kitten or cat out before mealtime, so they have a good incentive to come them inside again! Kittens should always be supervised outdoors until they are adults. All cats should be kept in at night - both for the sake of the local wildlife and for their own safety. Cats are much more likely to roam at night and therefore are much more prone to fighting and having accidents at this time.
Provide your kitten with things to do - even a peg, a sock or a scrunched up piece of paper can be a toy! Scratching is natural behavior for cats, but they need to be able to express this in an acceptable way (to protect your furniture!) - scratching posts or something similar provides their claws with good exercise.
