5 Ways To Tell If A Puppy Is Good

A healthy puppy should look vibrant and strong, with a bright-eyed smile.

  • Check the puppy’s eyes. A healthy puppy should have bright and clear eyes, with no discharge.
  • Check the puppy’s coat. A well-groomed, clean coat is a sign of good health, but be sure to check for fleas and ticks as well!
  • Check the puppy’s appetite. A puppy should always have a hearty appetite and be able to hold down his food without it coming back up again later!
  • Check the puppies playfulness level by taking them outside to see if they can run around or not – if they can’t walk on their own then this could indicate some issues with mobility and/or balance which might mean you’ll want another kind of dog instead!
  • Check that your new pup isn’t overweight (for example: if he weighs 30 pounds when he should only weigh 20).

A shy or nervous puppy often has his tail between his legs. His ears may be back, he may cower a bit, or he may even try to run away.

If your puppy is exhibiting these signs, try to reassure him and help him feel safe. Your veterinarian can also prescribe medication to calm him if needed until he adjusts to his new home.

While it’s important that your puppy is well socialized, he shouldn’t be afraid of people and everything else in the world either. A happy medium is much easier to achieve than you might think!

Playful puppies are inquisitive, they bound after toys, they grab your pants leg and bite it.

  • Playful puppies are inquisitive. They bound after toys, they grab your pants leg and bite it, and they explore their world.
  • Playful puppies like to play games. They’ll play fetch for hours if you let them, or chase after a ball you roll on the floor.
  • Playful puppies like to play with you. It’s not only important that they enjoy playing with you while they’re puppies—it’s important that they see playing WITH YOU as a reward in itself!
  • Playful puppies like to play with other dogs—and other puppies! A playful puppy will want to run and romp around with another doggie friend over being forced to hang out by themselves in their crate all day.

Happy puppies wag their tails and their bodies wiggle with excitement when their owner comes home.

A happy puppy shows interest in their surroundings by wagging their tail and their body wiggling with excitement when you (their owner) come home. Puppies that are happy, healthy and well adjusted will be interested in playing with other puppies or dogs. Puppies that are happy, healthy, and well adjusted generally want to play with toys or chew on something (not your new shoes). Happy, healthy, and well-adjusted puppies may also be timid around new people.

Calm puppies seem content to sit in your lap to be petted.

Do they enjoy being gently stroked and petted while they sit in your lap? Are they relaxed when you’re handling them, or do they squirm, cry and try to jump out of your arms? Calming puppies are less likely to be anxious about life. They seem more at ease with what’s going on around them. A calm puppy is not constantly barking or growling at other dogs and people it meets for the first time. They are more accepting of new situations than their high-strung counterparts.

Calm puppies make happy pets. Look for a puppy that seems content to be held by people it doesn’t know well yet. This is a sign of good socialization during their first eight weeks of life with their mom, siblings and breeder.

A happy puppy is the beginning of a happy life together

A puppy is a lot of work. It will take you time to train your new puppy, and you need to build up that bond. You can start with spending time with your puppy, by teaching him his name, getting him used to being touched, playing gentle games like fetch, and letting him get used to being alone at times.

Once you’ve bonded with your new puppy it’s time for some training! You should start by sitting in a room with the door shut and calling out commands like “sit” “stay” or “come” and then feeding them treats when they obey. This will teach them the basics of what you want from them!

Make sure that you feed your puppy healthy food as well! If puppies are fed unhealthy food then this could lead to problems later in life such as obesity or diabetes – which can cause heart disease too!
