Here’s how to start feeding your puppy
Feeding your puppy for the first time is an important milestone. Understanding what you need at that point will help ensure it’s a positive experience.

First, keep the same diet.

For her first week or two, feed the puppy the same food as the previous owner according to the feeding recommendations on the package. Sudden changes in eating habits can cause stress and indigestion. Provide a quiet place to eat.

Place it away from feeding areas and other pets. Leave the puppy alone during meals so that it does not become anxious or protected.

Let’s start with the feeding schedule.

Dogs feel better when they know when to feed. So start your feeding routine from day one. Four meals a day are required during baby food and three meals a day until at least 4 months of age. If in doubt, ask your veterinarian for advice. Learn more about puppy nutrition and feeding here.
A young dog will benefit from 3 to 4 small meals per day, rather than 1 or 2 large meals for him. You can use portions of your main meal as a dietary reward for desired behavior or to avoid overeating during your training session.
Safe ways to change your puppy’s diet
A puppy’s digestive system is delicate and does not respond well to sudden changes. When you’re ready to switch foods, it’s important to do it carefully and slowly to avoid stomach upset. Check out our guide on how to safely change your puppy’s diet. feed the puppy

After the puppy has been acclimatized to its owner for the first few days, it may be necessary to have it examined.

puppy socialization
Here are some ways you can start socializing your puppy in the first week of life.

introduce new sounds
Puppies have very sensitive hearing, so noise can be frightening. For the first week, give your puppy some noise, such as a hair dryer, doorbell, music, or a vacuum cleaner. Play with your puppy and give it food to ensure a positive experience. To avoid startling your puppy, keep your voice low at first, then gradually raise it as he becomes comfortable.
