What better way to welcome spring than with the arrival of a new furry family member? Spring is, in fact, a great time to get a new puppy, because house training is much easier when the weather outside is pleasant.

If you have recently adopted a new puppy or are about to, National Puppy Day is the perfect time to show him how much you love him. Spoil your sweet new fur baby rotten with these fun tips:

  • Make some homemade dog treats. The way to a man’s heart may be through his stomach – but that’s the way to a puppy’s heart, too! Take the time to whip up some delectable canine treats and your puppy will never want to leave your side.
  • Play some fun games with your puppy. Nothing says “I love you” to your pet than your undivided attention. Take him for a romp outdoors, or, if the weather is already uncomfortable (as it can be here in Texas),play a fun indoor game or two to keep your puppy happy and engaged.
  • Hire a dog sitter for the day while you go to work. Instead of leaving your puppy alone and bored while you work, hire a pet sitter from VIP Pet Services to play with your puppy, take him on walks, and feed him while you’re away. Your dog will be grateful for the attention, and you’ll have less to worry about (and fewer messes to clean up!).

With the right attention and care, your new puppy will soon grow into the faithful dog that will be your companion year after year – start the relationship off right with some serious TLC.
