I had my puppies well one is mine the other one is my sister’s for a few weeks and life couldn’t get any better. However, me being me, I have questions about everything in life and this, of course, including my dogs. So, I came up with four questions about my young pups with the research. I will answer these questions.
When do puppies become teens?
A puppy becomes a teen at the age of six months to the age of two/three years when your dog reaches physical maturity. Between the period of six to twelve months, you’re most likely to notice any behavioral issues.
At what age do puppies learn their name?
I asked myself this question because my puppy is eight weeks and he still doesn’t come to you when you call him. From what I read they learn their name within the first days/weeks that you bring them home so, I guess I will have to keep trying!
What kind of human food is right for dogs too?
Carrots: Chewing on carrots helps with the removal of plaque from their teeth which is great for your dog’s dental health. They are also a good source of vitamin A, which improves your dog’s immune system, coat and skin. However, they need to be given in moderation because vitamin A in large amount can be toxic.
Apples: Apples have vitamin A and C plus fibre that helps with the dog’s digestion (be aware that rotting apples can cause alcohol poisoning in dogs.
White Rich: Helps with an upset stomach, and so does Chicken.
Dairy products: such as milk, cheese, and plain yoghurt, are safe for dogs to have in minimal quantities. Overdoing dairy can cause digestive problems. This is because dogs have low levels of lactase, a digestive enzyme that breaks down the sugars in milk.
Fish: Such as salmon, shrimp, and tuna are all safe for dogs to eat and good sources of protein.
(There is a lot more food on the list, but I picked a few.)
How much sleep do they need?
I know it’s a weird question, but I had to look it up. An adult dog needs to sleep around 12 – 14 hours.
Do you guys want a part two? I’m asking you because I have a few more questions!
