We never forget the excitement of bringing our puppy home for the first time. Getting the house puppy proof and shopping for toys, beds and necessary treasures . I remember the day before picking up Louie, I went to our local pet shop with my shopping list and asked the sales person for the most suitable items for a little puppy and was overwhelmed by the choices.
If you are a first-time dog parent, you are excited and nervous. There are lots of unknowns and you have many questions. How are the first few days are going to be? How will the puppy adjust to his or her new home? What toys are puppy safe? The list goes on and on.
A year before we got Louie, my husband and I watched positive reinforcement videos by Victoria Stilwell, with no intention of immediately getting a dog. We learned so much about communicating and interacting with dogs, but we had no practical experience. When we got Louie, we were first time parents and very nervous about our ongoing responsibilities.
Now looking back, I realize how much I have learned through the years by owning dogs, researching many topics from nutrition, health, grooming to training. Much of my research led me to design products that suit small dogs better with the latest technical fabrics. Often, I post health and wellness topics on various social media groups., On these posts people asked a lot of questions, which led me to research more and more. I am obsessed with dogs and want to know about their world and share my knowledge by educating others.
Through my conversations with many dog owners on various groups I realized there are a lot of new dog parents with questions. Even among the experienced dog owners there are numerous questions, but we are all continuously learning from each other. Many people asked me to share my experiences, that is the reason for my blog to address the many questions and share my research. I invite everyone to participate and share your experiences and feelings about your pets.
