What To Expect When your Puppy Comes Home
Recommended feeding instructions. Feed 60% Dry dog food and 40% raw (2) Times per day RAW: Ground chicken or ground beef. Feeding times: 7:30 am 6:00 pm. Feed your puppy alone in a quiet area of your home. Give 7 to 10 minutes to eat then take up the food. Do not interrupt or distract your dog while eating. Provide water after they eat. Never feed from the table or give your dog leftovers. This will encourage begging and table surfing for food. This can also cause diarrhea, and derail your housebreaking efforts.
Your new puppy has started a house breaking regimen. Your puppy has been going out to use it every two hours. It also has been praised and treated for doing so. Your puppy is now in your new home and does not know the rules of its new environment. Be patient and try to get your puppy outside every two hours in the beginning if possible. Always use the same door to exit. This will give your puppy a focus point to target when they need to go out. Always take your puppy out within 10 minutes after they eat, drink, play, sleep or exit from their kennel.
Crate use is very important... it should never be used as a form of punishment. A crate is a great place for your puppy to rest or just get away. Use your crate often to prevent separation anxiety. If you cannot watch your new puppy please crate them. They are still learning and adjusting to their new home. When you take your dog out of its crate you must command them to “sit”, then give the “come” for them to exit the crate. avoid using baby talk this will over excite your puppy and cause them to wet your floor. Take your puppy directly outside without delay. Recommended Crate: Find this crate here
Just consider grooming your Giant Schnauzers a time for you to bond because your dog will need regular grooming. Although the Giant Schnauzer doesn’t shed flying fur, he does need regular brushing to avoid matting. Its important to keep your dog well groomed by combing him out weekly with a large metal comb. Its important to keep his head trimmed with those pronounced eyebrows and beard, his face can virtually disapear under a tangle of hair unless kept neatly trimmed. Giants are among the few breeds that sport breads.
