Will cats accept a puppy?
Reward your puppy for being calm and quiet when near your cat.
In most cases, with time, your new puppy and your cat will come to accept each other and may even become friends.
However, each situation is different and you should assess the reactions of both animals before you allow them to remain together unsupervised.
How long do I wait before taking my puppy outside? Vets recommend waiting until 10-14 days after your puppy's last vaccination booster – usually at around 14–16 weeks of age – before introducing them to the wonders of local parks, beaches and walking trails.
By around eight weeks of age your puppy should be eating solid food.
Puppies should be fed three to four times a day therefore if you are currently feeding ¾ a cup of puppy food twice a day you should consider spacing it out by feeding ½ cup three times a day.
A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e.
15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc.
Once they are fully grown, they can go out for much longer.
