you bring your pom home you can expect an entertaining and loving companion,
but you cannot expect to get a dog that is a playmate for small
you get home, everyone will want to hold or touch the puppy. Donít over do it.
Especially donít allow children in the home to handle it to much at first. Let
them pet its head or touch it in the crate, reserving more activity for a few
days later. The stress of leaving its litter mates and adjusting to a strange
environment will strain this little baby. Cuddle and play with it but also
give it plenty of rest.
During the first month, you will need to make it foot
wise. A pom puppy running under your feet will not only endangers itself, but
also can cause you to take a nasty fall. To avoid this problem, start teaching
it to stay away from your feet. Scoot your feet for the first few weeks until
your puppy is foot wise.
