Do not give them any calcium supplements. As this promotes rapid bone growth and can cause hip and joint dysplasia. Your puppy will let you know how much to feed. Let them eat until they are satisfied, then take away the left over food. Warm water can be poured over this dog food and a little plain yogurt added. Its important to help them develop a healthy flora in their gut. Always keep them in a good supply of drinking water. Talk to them as if they can understand every word you say.

Do not jog with your puppy until two years old. Jogging, prolonged walking, following a bike, and slippery floors are the number one cause of joint disorders in a growing newf puppy.
Do not let your puppy play unattended with an older dog. Pinning to the floor, running over and running into things can cause injury.
Do not let your puppy jump off of any high surfaces, including the couch, the car, the porch or anything higher than six inches. When they land with all that weight it jams their joints together and it will kill the growth plates in their joints. Limit them doing stairs until the age of one. We suggest you carry your puppy up and down stairs until you can’t, then get a puppy gate. If you can’t avoid the stairs use a harness and help lift him up and down stairs to support the weight, off of his hips and elbows.
