Who doesn’t love puppies? I get major puppy cravings every time I see a picture of one. But puppies are also a lot of work and, as rewarding as puppyhood can be, there there are also a lot of challenges. For example, when corgi Ty was a puppy, we faced challenges of housebreaking, training, and dealing with behaviors such as chewing. He even chewed a hole right in the side of a wall! He sure was a cute little guy though and my lab Molly was a great babysitter! She was incredibly patient with him and found some renewed vigor playing with him.
When I first got Ty, it would have been great to have had the Puppyhood Center as a resource. This is a new website from Purina PuppyChow and is a full online resource center focused on helping to guide new pet owners through puppyhood. Through exploring the site, you can discover common puppy questions and challenges and related content on how to deal with them. For example, the site has a wealth of information on topics such as these:
- Puppy nutrition
- What to expect as your puppy grows
When you join, Puppyhood gives you and your puppy a customized learning experience with helpful tools and expert advice. It also provides exclusive benefits and coupons to help you as you journey through puppyhood and into adulthood.There are also some cool special features, like a a puppy milestone tracker and information on puppy destinations and resources in your own community. I would have loved to have had that tracker when Ty was growing up! Here is he is at about 6 months of age visiting his dachshund cousins. He grew up so fast!
One of the important keys to raising a healthy puppy is also providing complete and balanced nutrition from the minute you bring your puppy home. Purina Puppy Chow offers a unique healthy-start blend that is made with high-quality protein, plus DHA and
essential nutrients also found in mothers’ milk. It is great to see Purina pairing their food offerings with the informative Puppyhood Center. If you have a puppy or are thinking of getting one, it is definitely worth your time to pay the center a visit and learn all about navigating puppyhood.
Finally, here is an adorable video for you about Puppyhood!
