About Tips for New Dog Owners

Hi, I’m Laura and I’m behind Tips for New Dog Owners. I started this blog because I am a new dog owner. I recently adopted Polar Bear, a 5-year old mixed breed dog, from a rescue group in my town called VOCAL.

Welcoming Polar Bear into my home came with some challenges. He ran away from home at every chance he got. He had issues with separation anxiety. He needed to be crate trained. I had no idea how to choose a vet or a groomer.

Thankfully, with advice from a dog behaviorist, lots of research and tips from friends, I muddled through. Our relationship has changed and now Polar Bear is my best friend. I’d like to share my experience and my knowledge to help other new dog owners make the most of their connection with their pet.
