Regularly cleaning your puppy's ears can help prevent infections and keep them healthy. Use a gentle ear-cleaning solution and cotton balls, and be careful not to insert anything too far into the ear canal.
Brushing your puppy's teeth regularly is important for their overall dental health. Use a toothbrush and toothpaste specially designed for dogs, and make sure to reward them with treats and praise for good behavior during the process.
