Puppy Oliver

Hello Loves,

As I am sure many of you know (I have been shamelessly posting photos almost everyday) I am now a puppy mom!  My little one’s  name is Oliver.   He is a “Teddybear” puppy, half Shitzu/half Bichon.  Oliver has quickly become the center of my world.  He is such a mommy’s boy.  I can not leave a room without him running to catch up with my feet.  Over these first few weeks there have been some challenges, potty training, teething, the normal puppy hurdles.  However, I would not change a single thing.  The cuddles and kisses are worth cleaning up a million accidents.  I found a quote that read “being a mother doesn’t mean being related to someone by blood.  It means loving someone unconditionally and with your whole heart.”  I truly feel like Oliver is my baby.  His life depends on me, and while that is a scary thought, his presence makes me incredibly happy. Becoming a puppy mom was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

As I am still new to puppy motherhood, if anyone has any creative ideas or tricks they would like to share, I would love to hear.  Oliver and I would greatly appreciate it.  Feel free to comment below!

With Love And Light,

Courtney

    I have a puppy as well, and I have had great success with her being potty trained for 2 reasons. Although it may seem useless, I brought my puppy outside every thirty minutes for the first couple months I had her, and when she would go to the bathroom outside, you reward her like crazy (even if you use her doc food and call it a treat it still will work). Additionally, my baby slept with me every night, and It wasn’t very often she got put in a kennel. When they start to get fussy in the middle of the night that’s when you need to bring them out, and especially with small dogs with even smaller bladders they will have to go more frequently. Hope this helps, but most importantly rewarding her for good behavior is the best thing you can do as a puppy mum!
