If you provide love and support in the right way, this will be the beginning of a great relationship for years to come.
Dogs can require a variety of kinds of care, many of them several times a day. But don’t be scared. These will quickly become part of your routine, and the better you get at caring for your new family member, the more pleasure you’ll all get from your new relationship.
