13 Differences Between First Time And Experienced Pup Parents

You may think you’re ready to raise your first puppy on your own, but no matter how prepared you are it’s going to be one crazy, emotional, furry, pee-filled rollercoaster. Take my own experience with my first puppy Mads for example: Mads peed on my roommates, got stuck under my couch and whined for 4 hours straight, and that was just his first night. Raising a puppy is like most things in life, and with practice you can go from puppy newbie to a seasoned pup pro who’s ready to handle whatever inconveniently placed doggy vom gets in your way.
