7 Common Mistakes New Dog Owners Make.

Don't expect your dog to be potty trained after a few short weeks, cause that's not happening.

Most owners bring their pups back to the pound because they can't seem to train their dogs where to pee or poop. Newsflash! It can take up to eight months to house train your dog, so you'll need to invest time, energy, and a lot of patience to train your pooch. Also, cut off their water supply two hours before bed so they don't pee themselves, and limit the feeding to two times a day.

You allowed your kids to play around your new puppy, but you aren't supervising them enough.

Dogs have a certain threshold of tolerance, just like we do. But when they're young, it's even more limited. But kids tend to test our limits, and they'll do the same with dogs. So, it's important that you keep an eye on both so your child doesn't push your puppy's buttons, and your dog doesn't react aggressively towards your child.
