Your puppy's year one milestones

What a year it has been! So much growing and learning - and fun. And there are so many more fun things to do together!.

Can you believe that your puppy is nearing their first birthday, and they're almost a grown-up!

They have done so much growing in this first year, learnt so many new things, and hopefully, you have had a fantastic time together as you’ve got to know each other. And this is just the beginning of your adventures! What a great time to reflect on all the new things from the year - and if you have any photos of their milestones to share - we'd love to see them on our Facebook page

How many of the things on our puppy milestone list has your little one done? 

  • Become house-trained
  • Chosen a favourite toy
  • Walked on a beach
