There's nothing as soft as puppy fur.

This fluffy baby coat is typically shed around 6 months of age.

However, the breed, time of year and exposure to light all affect the hair growth cycle.

Some breeds will take even longer to shed their puppy coat and replace it with an adult coat.

These will include the core vaccines, which are administered in a series of three: at 6-, 12-, and 16 weeks old.

The core vaccines include the DHLPP (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, and parainfluenza).

Your pup will also need a rabies vaccination, which is usually around $15β€”20.

When should a puppy start eating solid food? Puppies should get solid food starting at about four weeks, when they're not able to get all the calories they need from their mother's milk.

Well, not usually. Most training professionals strongly recommend against adopting two pups at the same time.

Just because you have two kids and they both want their own puppy doesn't mean you should get two pups.

You stand the best chance of raising well-trained and -socialized puppies one at a time.

The most optimal window to start introducing water and puppy food is when the puppy is around 3 to 4 weeks old.

This is the time when the pup will naturally start to slowly wean from her mother's milk and start becoming more independent.

What you need to know that your puppy should never leave its mother and litter mates before they are at least 8 weeks of age.

It frustrates me to read a behaviour related question, to then find out that the dog was allowed to be removed from the mother and siblings before the age of 8 or 9 weeks old.
