Forget whatever you believe you know or what television or social media had told you, or your neighbour or Uncle Jimmy's, mate's, sisters boyfriend who is a wannabe dog trainer because he taught a dog to sit once.
Puppies are not out to get you! Puppies are amazing, they are not humans and they have a completely different set of needs to us.
They are expected to magically know how to communicate that they need the toilet at 8 weeks old, whereas human toddlers can have concessions until 5 years old with toileting.
Toddlers also destroy homes across the world daily and do not feel the wrath that is placed onto poor puppies and dogs.
It's time to independently learn from trusted resources and not follow uninformed information!

I need your help, support and guidance to grow and develop
I am a different species and not a human and my needs are very different to yours
I don't understand your house rules and why furniture is not to be chewed.
I need time and patience to settle into your home
I will be afraid of being left alone
I will chew as this is in my nature
It may take me 9 months plus to learn to toilet outside
I need a species appropriate diet
I need plenty of sleep
I will mouth and nip
I am not stubborn
I need your love, patience and guidance
I need you to work with me Force and Fear free
And understand and accept I'm not trying to dominate you, be the boss or do things out of spite!
I am a puppy and I am a different species!
