Introduction

Month two and three is a very exciting time in the life of a puppy. They are old enough to separate from their mother and find their place in your pack. Not only are their little bodies more active, their minds are developing quickly and they are in need of constant guidance. Patience on your part is much appreciated by your little fur ball as they explore, chew, and have an accident or two. For the next several weeks, basic training and socialization are the top priorities. Teaching them the rules of the house and introducing them to new people and situations sets them up for success. Here is some information that will help make the next couple months of your pup’s life extra furrific!

Two Month Old Puppy

When a puppy reaches two months, they are ready to leave their mother and begin an independent life. As their new parent, it’s your responsibility to keep them safe by puppy proofing your home. Keep small items put away and toxic substances out of reach. If crate training is something you want to do, now is the time to get started. At eight weeks, your pup needs the next round of vaccines. Check with your vet, but most likely they will get a shot for distemper, measles, parainfluenza, and bordatella. This is also the time to begin potty training, so find the method that works best for your situation and get started!

3 Month Old Puppy

By the third month of their life, your little one should have had some success with potty training, but don’t worry if they need more practice. Your pup’s day is a constant cycle of sleep, eat, potty, play. While it’s pawsome to have a routine, be sure to make time for socialization. Take them around the neighborhood and let them meet and greet as many people as possible. They are not fully vaccinated yet, so stay away from the dog park and other animals. Around 12 weeks, it’s time to for another trip to the vet so your pal can get the next round of vaccines. Keep your pup safe now for a lifetime together!
