Our Dexter has just turned 1 Week today. It will be another 7 or so weeks before we get to bring him home. He is a Chihuahua puppy. During this time we are: Within the next couple of weeks we will be going to our vet to get a vaccination list with prices and possibly be able to book Dexter's first appointment.(he has been our long time vet and a good one). We have already got a crate. We plan on using it during the night, safe times, and when we can't be there. The longest he will be in there is night time with exception of going out to potty. I don't work so there will plenty of time for him to be out an about. We also have his bed, front carry dog backpack. We just have the small stuff to get now. Toys, blankie, tooth paste / brush. We already have a harness and leash. We have been refreshing ourselves with puppy training videos ( it's been 20 years since we have had a puppy). Are we on the right track so far? Do you have any suggestions at this time or questions I should ask? We are beyond excited. He was the only one in his litter and mommy is doing very good at protecting him and from what I know once the teeth start coming she starts weaning her pups. Is there anything I should be mindful of because he is only puppy. I do know that there are a couple more Chihuahuas in the home. They are spoiled little Chihuahuas lol. Very well taken care of. So I believe although Dexter is on pup mom had he will have socialization from the other dogs as well when he is a bit older. Right now he is still in a private area of the home with just mom. Sorry for the long post just wanted to check with other puppy owners.
