I have just adopted a 5 week old english cocker spaniel. I am a first-time dog owner, please help?
I have just adopted a 5 week old english cocker spaniel. I am a first-time dog owner, but I have been on the phone all day long with friends and family who have dogs to ensure I do what's best for her.
I have a few queries, to which I have gotten conflicting answers from people:
a. When will be the right time to deworm her? The vet said we should do it pronto. But everyone else said she is too young and it may cause liver damage. Who is right?
b. Is it too early to potty train?
c. My husband and I both work, so we leave her alone (the house is big so she has a lot of space to run around) for four hours in the morning, then i visit her at my lunch hour and then four more hours till i go home finally. Is this unadivisable? Should I look for doggy day care? Can anyone suggest a good place in gurgaon?
