Basic Needs

Your dog's most basic needs are somewhere to sleep and something to eat. So there is a page devoted to each of those.

Dog Collars

Get your dog used to a collar from the first day you bring him home.

A collar should be light, not too wide, and adjusted so that your hand can fit between the collar and dog's neck.

For a growing puppy, check every two weeks that the collar is not too tight.

A soft fabric collar is best for young puppies.

Dog Leads

Allow a puppy a few days to get used to his collar before you introduce a lead.
