Today we are in Glasgow to meet Arthur and his brand-new puppy.

0:01:090:01:13

Now, this is going to be fun. Let's go.

0:01:130:01:16

-Hi, Arthur.

-Hi, Rory.

-And you must be Mum. Hello.

-Hi.

0:01:230:01:28

-And who is this wee guy?

-Fonzie.

-Fonzie.

0:01:280:01:31

What an incredible puppy.

0:01:310:01:33

-How long have you had him?

-Just two days.

0:01:330:01:36

-Two days. So he's really new?

-Uh-huh.

0:01:360:01:38

-And how old is he?

-Nine weeks.

0:01:380:01:41

Wow, that will be why he's so small.

0:01:410:01:44

-What sort of dog is he?

-Border terrier.

-I thought so.

0:01:440:01:48

They are normally very playful and full of energy.

0:01:480:01:52

You'll need to take him for walks and give him attention.

0:01:520:01:55

-Are you looking forward to that?

-Uh-huh.

-He's lovely.

0:01:550:01:58

-So how is he settling in so far?

-Good.

0:01:580:02:01

-Yeah? How was his first couple of nights? Sleep well?

-Yeah.

0:02:010:02:05

Great. What a good dog. You're lucky.

0:02:050:02:07

Puppies can take a while to get used to a new home.

0:02:070:02:11

But it looks like this little fellow is settling in.

0:02:110:02:14

That's great. What will be your favourite thing about having a dog?

0:02:140:02:18

-Playing with him.

-Yeah. What sort of tricks are you going to teach him?

0:02:180:02:22

To sit, lie and come...

0:02:220:02:26

-and all different ones.

-I like it.

0:02:260:02:29

He is going to be an incredible dog when he gets a bit bigger, as well.

0:02:290:02:33

But he's so cute just now.

0:02:330:02:34

-And what do you love most about him?

-Cuddling him.

0:02:340:02:38

Yeah. Do you want to give him a cuddle now?

0:02:380:02:41

Oh! Oh, he's very cute.

0:02:410:02:44

Ferne, can you give us some facts about puppies just like Fonzie?

0:02:440:02:48

'Of course, Rory.'

0:02:480:02:50

Most puppies are born in a litter.

0:02:510:02:54

This means they have loads of brothers and sisters

0:02:540:02:58

that are born at the same time as them.

0:02:580:03:01

When puppies are born, they can't see or hear well.

0:03:040:03:07

So it's important that their mummy stays close to them

0:03:070:03:10

so she can keep them safe.

0:03:100:03:12

Puppies are a little bit clumsy because their bodies grow so fast

0:03:140:03:18

and they learn to walk very quickly.

0:03:180:03:21

It can take a while to get used to their big paws.

0:03:210:03:24

DOG BARKS CHILDREN: Care time!

0:03:270:03:29

All pets need care and attention, but especially puppies,

0:03:310:03:34

because they're young and they need looking after and training.

0:03:340:03:38

Having a puppy is different from having a grown-up dog.

0:03:380:03:42

-How do you look after Fonzie, Arthur?

-We feed him, give him treats,

0:03:420:03:47

train him and give him a nice home.

0:03:470:03:50

That's very important, to give him a nice home.

0:03:500:03:52

-Right, shall we feed him now?

-Yes.

-Come on. Come on. Come on.

0:03:520:03:57

Wow. So what sort of food do we have here?

0:04:030:04:06

-Special puppy food.

-Yes. That's right.

0:04:060:04:10

Puppies' tummies aren't fully developed,

0:04:100:04:12

so they need special food they can digest.

0:04:120:04:15

Right, shall we go for it? How much are you going to put in?

0:04:150:04:19

Just half of this cup.

0:04:190:04:22

Perfect. Let's pop the food away.

0:04:230:04:26

-What else do we need to do?

-Do the water.

-Of course.

0:04:260:04:29

I'll pick that up.

0:04:290:04:31

I'll put this away first.

0:04:310:04:34

I'll empty this out.

0:04:340:04:36

Right, shall we see if he's hungry?

0:04:480:04:51

Here's your food.

0:04:510:04:53

He's just getting used to eating out of his bowl.

0:04:530:04:56

-Well done.

-He's eating lots.

-He is.

0:04:560:05:00

Good boy.

0:05:000:05:02

You should feed puppies a small amount three or four times a day.

0:05:020:05:07

He's having a drink. Look.

0:05:070:05:09

-Is that where little Fonzie sleeps?

-Yes.

-Let's have a look.

0:05:110:05:15

-Come on, Fonz.

-Come on.

0:05:150:05:17

CAT MEOWS CHILDREN: Wash your hands!

0:05:210:05:25

-So why does Fonzie have this?

-To keep him safe.

0:05:250:05:29

Yes. It looks very safe, doesn't it? I bet he loves it in there.

0:05:290:05:33

A dog crate is a good idea if you've got the space.

0:05:330:05:36

It's a safe place for the puppy to go in and relax

0:05:360:05:39

and have a nap if they need one.

0:05:390:05:41

-It's like a wee den.

-Yes.

0:05:410:05:42

What else do you need to do to look after a puppy?

0:05:420:05:45

-Toilet-train them.

-Of course. That's important.

0:05:450:05:49

You want to make sure they go to the bathroom outside, not in the house.

0:05:490:05:53

That's not good, is it? How do you do that?

0:05:530:05:56

-Let them know by opening the door?

-Yes.

0:05:560:05:58

When you think they're going to go for a wee,

0:05:580:06:01

open the door and they can walk out.

0:06:010:06:03

It can take time to teach a puppy to go to the bathroom outside.

0:06:030:06:07

You need to be patient. If they start to go inside,

0:06:070:06:10

you can pick them up and take them outside. They can learn that way.

0:06:100:06:14

Do you want to let him out now and see if he wants to go?

0:06:140:06:18

That's a good idea.

0:06:180:06:20

-Come on, Fonz. Come on.

-Come on.

-Come on.

0:06:200:06:23

Come on. Come on.

0:06:270:06:30

Good boy. Come on.

0:06:300:06:32

He's going.

0:06:340:06:36

Good boy! Well done.

0:06:360:06:39

Good boy. Well done.

0:06:390:06:41

Remember to give him lots of praise

0:06:410:06:43

when he does something you want him to do.

0:06:430:06:46

There's something else you have to do every day with a dog.

0:06:460:06:49

-What is it?

-Walk it.

-That's right.

0:06:490:06:52

Giving your puppy exercise is important,

0:06:520:06:54

but not too much when they're young.

0:06:540:06:57

A short walk around your garden or the park will usually do.

0:06:570:07:00

Fonzie hasn't had his immunisations,

0:07:000:07:03

so we can't take him out of the garden.

0:07:030:07:05

But we can play with him here. Are you ready? It's playtime. Come on!

0:07:050:07:10

Come and catch me, Fonzie!

0:07:150:07:17

Good boy. Good boy!

0:07:220:07:25

Looking after puppies is hard work, but it is a lot of fun, isn't it?

0:07:250:07:29

There something else every puppy needs.

0:07:290:07:32

-Cuddles.

-Yes!

0:07:320:07:34

Aw!

0:07:340:07:35

Good boy. Well done.

0:07:350:07:37

CAT MEOWS CHILDREN: My Pet And Me!

0:07:390:07:42

Aww! Fonzie is so tired.

0:07:420:07:45

Look at him sleep. What do you think he's dreaming about?

0:07:450:07:49

Going with his friends

0:07:490:07:51

to get a bone that size!

0:07:510:07:53

-Huge.

-Yeah.

0:07:550:07:57

If Fonzie could do anything, what do you think he'd do?

0:07:570:08:01

DRUMROLL

0:08:010:08:02

If my pet could do anything...

0:08:020:08:05

he would go to the beach.

0:08:050:08:08

He would wear a bright yellow swimming costume.

0:08:080:08:12

He would go surfing.

0:08:130:08:16

When he was finished, he would sit on his surfboard

0:08:160:08:20

and fish in the sea.

0:08:200:08:22

We've come to the vet's so Fonzie can get a health check.

0:08:270:08:31

There's a treat afterwards. What is it?

0:08:310:08:33

-A puppy party.

-Yes! Let's go.

0:08:330:08:36

-Hi there.

-Hi, I'm the vet here. This is Fonzie, isn't it?

0:08:390:08:42

-Yes.

-And how is Fonzie?

-Good.

0:08:420:08:45

Get you on the scales, see what you weigh?

0:08:450:08:48

He's 3.22 kilos - really healthy for a nine-week-old puppy.

0:08:480:08:52

It's what we expect.

0:08:520:08:53

We look at his eyes.

0:08:530:08:55

Nice and clean, nice and bright.

0:08:550:08:57

No runny eyes or anything like that. He's got a lovely wet nose as well.

0:08:570:09:01

-How does it feel?

-Wet.

0:09:010:09:03

-THEY LAUGH

-Shall we look at his teeth?

0:09:030:09:06

-What do you think?

-Whoa!

-They're pearly white, aren't they?

-Yeah.

0:09:060:09:10

So then we'll have a quick check of his ears.

0:09:100:09:13

-How do you think they look?

-Good.

-Yeah. They look nice and good.

0:09:130:09:17

Not red or anything. So, happy with that.

0:09:170:09:19

I'll have a listen to his chest to make sure that sounds all OK.

0:09:190:09:23

It's going at about 100 beats per minute.

0:09:250:09:27

-Do you want to have a listen?

-Yeah. You listen first.

-Here you are.

0:09:270:09:32

HEARTBEAT THUDS

0:09:320:09:33

-Can you hear it?

-Is it fast?

-Yeah.

0:09:350:09:37

It's faster than a human's, isn't it?

0:09:370:09:40

Ba-boom, ba-boom.

0:09:400:09:42

That's your heart. Hee-hee, that's cool.

0:09:420:09:46

It seems in good order.

0:09:460:09:48

The last thing is to have a quick feel of his tummy, but...

0:09:480:09:51

It feels fine. Nice and squidgy is what you want.

0:09:510:09:55

-He's a really healthy little guy, yeah.

-Great.

0:09:550:09:58

Something you have to do when you get a puppy is get them microchipped.

0:09:580:10:02

The vet puts a small chip that holds information under your dog's skin.

0:10:020:10:07

If they get lost or stolen, it's easier to find their proper home.

0:10:070:10:11

We scan them to make sure there's not already a chip.

0:10:110:10:14

So I'll just do that.

0:10:140:10:16

No, no chip there.

0:10:160:10:18

-Are you OK to hold him? Is that all right?

-Yes, certainly.

0:10:180:10:21

A wee bit of a...

0:10:210:10:23

-There we go.

-Good boy.

-That's that.

0:10:240:10:26

-We'll just scan him.

-SCANNER BEEPS

0:10:260:10:28

-There. It's in. That's him done.

-What a brave boy.

0:10:280:10:31

-A brave boy, wasn't he?

-He was so good, he deserves a treat.

0:10:310:10:35

-What do you think?

-Yes. Well done, Fonzie.

0:10:350:10:39

Now it's time for a bigger treat. It's puppy party time. Let's go!

0:10:390:10:43

-See you.

-See you. Here we go.

0:10:430:10:46

Wow, look at all these dogs!

0:10:520:10:55

Hello, puppies.

0:10:550:10:57

A puppy party is a great way to get your puppy used to other dogs.

0:10:570:11:01

Another good idea is socialisation classes.

0:11:010:11:04

This is a class where lots of puppies meet each other.

0:11:040:11:07

So, when your dog meets another dog in the street or park

0:11:070:11:11

they won't be afraid and are more likely to get along.

0:11:110:11:14

Shall we go and say hello?

0:11:140:11:16

Come on, who's this? Hello.

0:11:160:11:19

-Hi.

-What's your name?

-Beth.

-And what is your dog's name?

-Ollie.

-Ollie.

0:11:190:11:23

-What sort of dog is Ollie?

-He's a cocker spaniel.

-He's gorgeous.

0:11:230:11:28

-And how old is he?

-Three and a half months.

-He's very playful.

0:11:280:11:32

-Do you think they're friends?

-Yeah.

-Looks like it, doesn't it?

0:11:320:11:36

Who's this? Who's this? Come and say hello.

0:11:380:11:41

-Hi, there.

-Hello.

-What's your name?

-Scott.

0:11:410:11:43

-And who is this?

0:11:530:11:57

-What's your dog called?

0:11:570:12:02

-A black Labrador.

-He's very nice. How old is he?

0:12:020:12:05

-Ten weeks.

-Oh, he's young, as well.

0:12:050:12:09

Just older than little Fonzie here.

0:12:090:12:11

It was lovely to meet you. And lovely to meet you as well, Benji.

0:12:110:12:15

Right, let's go back. Come on.

0:12:150:12:17

Arthur, thank you for introducing me to little Fonzie

0:12:170:12:21

and all the other dogs here as well.

0:12:210:12:23

I've had a wonderful time meeting them.

0:12:230:12:25

It's a lot of work looking after a puppy, but it's a lot of fun.

0:12:250:12:29

Thanks for coming, Rory.

-Hi, Ferne. Hi, wee Jellybean.

-Hi, Rory. You're looking happy.

0:12:460:12:50

-What have you been up to?

-I'm happy.

0:12:500:12:52

-I had a great time with my friends. We had so much fun.

-That is amazing.

0:12:520:12:56

Well, Jellybean is having a cuddle at the minute.

0:12:560:13:00

He certainly looks very happy.

0:13:000:13:02

Pets are brilliant,

0:13:020:13:03

but don't touch an animal unless the owner says it's OK.

0:13:030:13:07

Two pets you CAN play with are ours.

0:13:070:13:09

Go onto our website and play the My Pet And Me game.

Thanks for spending time with us. We hope you've had fun, too.
