Buying a new puppy is an exciting time, but it is also a great deal of work. Fortunately, pet care companies now offer a wide range of services, from dog food delivery to mobile pet grooming and even pet cleanup services, so you can focus on playing with and training your new pet. While training your new puppy may seem overwhelming at first, remember there are plenty of services to simplify things. Keep reading for tips on how to pick the best food, housebreak your puppy, and schedule plenty of exercise.
Selecting Dog Food
Picking dog food and scheduling dog grooming are both essential to keeping your puppy looking and feeling her best. Select a dog food delivery service that you trust to provide the best in premium puppy food. Make sure to consult with your vet to select the right combinations of protein, fat, and carbohydrates for your breed of puppy. Pet grooming is important so your dog’s fur stays healthy, shiny, and free of fleas and ticks.
House training a new puppy is all about consistency. First, be sure to feed your puppy his dog food at the same time each day. Puppies need to eliminate shortly after eating, so take your pet outside after about 10 minutes. Using a leash, guide your puppy to the same spot outside every day so she can use the bathroom. Try to pick a safe and calming spot so she does not feel distracted or anxious. Use a poop scoop or hire a pet waste removal service to keep your lawn healthy.
If you have not already noticed, new puppies have much more energy than adult dogs do. Giving your dog the time she needs to play each day will not only keep her heart and muscles healthy, it will make sure she does not feel frustrated or upset when she is indoors. If you have a larger breed, try to incorporate at least an hour of playtime each day.

Even the most loving pet owners do not want to clean up dog poop in Dallas. Fortunately, dog poop service is now available from pet waste removal companies who have built their business around pet cleanup.
Whether you dispose of your dog’s waste on your own or outsource your pet waste removal, it is important to have it removed from your yard and public areas. Left uncollected, dog waste containing pathogens like salmonella, E. coli, and roundworms can run off into local waterways—and ruin the grass in your yard. The simplest way to dispose of dog waste is to pick it up using a biodegradable bag and put it in your trashcan. You can also purchase flushable pouches made from polyvinyl alcohol film that dissolves in water.
Let the experts at EZ Pet Care take pet cleanup off your hands. Learn more about our dog poop service by calling our Dallas office at (888) 613-1320.
You spoil your pet with services like pet grooming and dog food delivery in Dallas. But how do you know your puppy appreciates your investment in Pet Love Grooming and loves you just as much as you love him?
It is no mystery that dogs are motivated primarily by food, but if your puppy cuddles up next to you after eating, that is a good sign he loves you back. Another sign that your dog loves you is wanting to sleep next to you, or at least in the same room. If your puppy peacefully goes into her crate, she trusts you enough to know you are coming back. Finally, if your dog puts up with pet grooming and a pet nail trim, you know she loves and respects you!

Your new puppy depends on you to provide him with nutritious dog food that will help him grow into a happy, healthy adult dog. When choosing dog food for your puppy, follow these tips to ensure that you’re providing him with all of the nutrients that he needs.
Only Buy Dog Food That Has Undergone Feeding Trials
Some dog food companies develop dog food recipes without ever testing them on dogs. You should only buy dog food that has undergone AAFCO feeding trials, which are scientific tests that ensure that dogs will receive sufficient nutrients from the dog food. During feeding trials, dog food companies consult with pet nutritionists and scientists to develop food that is balanced, nutritious, and safe.
Dog Food Should be Appropriate for Your Puppy’s Size and Breed
Dog food comes in different varieties that are specifically formulated for dogs’ age, weight, breed, and health. If your puppy is a small breed, he needs different dog food than a large breed dog. Large breed dog food contains the right levels of calcium and phosphorous to support large bone growth, and prevent arthritis. You should also be sure to buy dog food formulated for puppies, rather than adult, elderly, or overweight dogs.
Read Dog Food Labels Carefully
Read dog food labels carefully to be sure you’re aware of all of their ingredients and nutritional information. Puppy food should contain higher calories than adult dog food, as puppies expend more energy while they grow and develop. Dog food that is specifically formulated for puppies should also be high in DHA, an essential fatty acid.
At EZ Petcare, we know that you want the best for your puppy, and that includes finding the healthiest dog food available.
