GREAT DANE PUPPY
You want to feed LOW PROTEIN Dog Food.
(I feed Eukanuba Adult Lamb & Rice, protein 23% fat 14%)
Feed at least 3 times a day as long as
they hold a good weight. I stop all feedings by 6pm. Doing so helps
with house training. Food is soaked in water approx. 20 min. Uneaten
food can be stored in the refrigerator as can presoaked food. Feed as
much as your pup will eat at one sitting.
We give vitamin C for the first two years.
This helps keep feet tight during the teething and growing period.
DO NOT GIVE YOUR PUP RAW HIDE it can
soften and be swallowed causing potential intestinal surgery. Our pups
love knotted ropes and pig ears.
CRATES AND HOUSE
I recommend crating your pup when youre
not home and at night. It gives them a secure feeling and you know were
they are. Puppy proof your house, if one of my pups get into anything
I figure its my fault.
Puppies potty as soon as they eat and
wake up. Try to wake your pup up and take it outside before it has a
chance to have an accident.
Dont buy any nice blankets yet,
all pups chew, I use old blankets, sheets, towels, anything youre
not worried about possibly being chewed.
Anything you let them do as a pup they
will do as an adult. Keep commands short, no bite; no jump; sit; come;
down; stay. Anytime you reprimand your pup back it up with praise, you
dont want to break there spirit. Danes want to please and are
very people oriented. I believe raising a pup is like raising a toddler,
if you give your pup one year of patience and consistency you will have
a great dog. Socialize your pup after your series of the three puppy
shots and it's Bordetella shot. Take your pup everywhere you can and
expose your pup to new sounds and different environments.
PUPPY SHOTS AND
Worming-Nemex-2 ; Shots- Vanguard Plus 5/CV
I highly recommend giving your pup Bordetella
nasal injection to protect them against Kennel Cough. It is an air born
disease and can be caught anywhere.
