ANTOINETTE KEYSER. First, you should know that you cannot simply bring a pup into the household and expect him to find his own way around your house and your property. He will need your guidance and protection, because he is still a little baby that has been adopted by you, and he comes with exactly the same amount of responsibility as a new baby, This is the reason why I advise people to make absolutely sure that they really do want a pup before they actually go ahead and buy one.
Next, you have to understand that the pup has been suddenly taken away from his mom without him having any say in the matter, and he will probably resent the situation. That is normal, and it is up to you to make sure he doesn’t begin to resent you. Just as important, it is up to you to give him a reason to want you as his owner, and provide him with enough scope to accept you as his parent.
