Tips for Puppies and Puppy Love

Two recent Psychology Today posts are all about puppies.

By Zazie Todd, PhD

For National Puppy Day, I wrote about the best things you can do for your puppy. The post shares three essential tips for anyone who is getting a puppy.

And in response, Marc Bekoff wrote it's National Puppy Day so give them all the love you can. In it, Bekoff writes,
"I'm a fan of all people who choose to bring a dog into their homes and hearts taking the time to become amateur ethologists and spending time becoming "fluent in dog." When we make this decision, and it should be a serious and informed choice, we become their caregivers and they assume we have their best interests in mind from "cradle to grave," the cradle beginning when we welcome them into our lives"

Why not check them out. Of course, it's really Puppy Day (and Kitten Day) every day!!
