How to take care of your puppy in the first 2 days

From what to know when buying a German shepherd dog in our previous article, I am sure you will want to read  How to start breeding dogs for business. I have been overwhelmed by questions regarding puppy care.

Part one of this article will cover tips on puppy day care for the first 2 days.

Puppies' 1st Day

Today is extremely critical for the new puppy as are the next several days.

He will be nursing almost constantly but he is not getting milk from the dam. He is getting 'colostrum'. It is a sort of thin yellowish-milky fluid.

The cost of a house is never just the asking price. I have divided these secondary costs in three parts: maintenance,bargaining power, being money wise and repairs. Maintenance If you plan on buying a town house , you will want to know what the monthly maintenance fees are. These fees will always vary based on the location and the services offered to the residents.
Even if you are not buying a house, secondary costs may still be a factor. Some houses fall under the authority of a resident's association that may require you to keep up a certain appearance (which could mean having security guards, water services). Bargaining Power Buying a house is nothing like buying  retail; everything is negotiable. Make an offer on the low side, but always make it a reasonable offer. An unreasonable offer w…
