“Puppies are so hard!”

Bringing home a puppy is precious – but what I didn’t anticipate was the difficulty of the first couple of months. No one has sympathy when you are exhausted because of the sleepless nights while crate-training your puppy.

I struggled to find good information about the first few months of raising a puppy all in one place, so I decided to compile what I have learned, provide some helpful resources and offer my sincere sympathy – the puppy stage passes quickly and the effort put into the early days of training pay back in spades!

I am not a veterinarian, nor a professional dog trainer, this is simply a collection of my experience that I hope will be helpful for someone else!
