How to Take Care of Puppies, Manhattan, New York

Make sure that the puppy you are getting is right for you. Does its coat suit your climate? Is it small enough to live in your apartment or house? Does its energy level suit the amount of exercise you can provide? Careful consideration of these questions will ensure your puppy's well-being and will also impact the happiness of your household.

Puppy-proof your house. Puppies love to explore with their mouths. To keep your puppy and house safe, you'll need to take a few precautions.
Remove breakable items from the area where you plan to keep your puppy.
Keep all electrical cords raised or covered, and close all low windows.
Lock away toxic cleaning supplies/chemicals.
Get a trash can that is too tall for him to get into and too heavy to knock over, or store the trash can in a cabinet.
Consider getting a folding gate or exercise pen to keep him confined to a certain room or are.

Provide space for the puppy. The kitchen or bathroom is an ideal place for his bed during the day because those rooms are usually warm and have washable floors. At night, keep your puppy in his crate in your bedroom. This will allow you to hear him during the night, so you will know if he needs to go outside to relieve himself.
