Bringing Up Puppy Series

by Perfect Puppy Care

Written by Lisa Scott

My family and I are first time puppy owners, sharing the joy of our new family member with our two children in upstate New York. Since this is new to us, there’s lots to learn, loads of fun to be had and surely some mistakes we’ll make along the way. And I’ll be sharing it all with you here on PerfectPuppyCare.com twice a week. So read along and find out which puppy we choose, if the dog gets along with the new kitten, if the kids really help out as promised and if the puppy changes our family forever. I’d love t hear your comments, questions and advice along the way.
