I've been a hobby breeder for a number of years and have experience caring for large and small dog breeds. I have always taken puppies to my vet for a health check before they go to their new homes, and my vet would often remark that inexperienced dog owners didn't seem to know what was involved in keeping their dog healthy. I started this blog to connect with other dog lovers, share my experience of caring for puppies and pass on the basic healthcare tips I've picked up over the years. I post on a range of topics, such as the importance of following your puppy's vaccination schedule, protecting your puppy from fleas and worms, recognising common signs of sickness and meeting your puppy's key nutritional requirements. I hope you find my blog useful.
