On the day you bring your Labrador puppy home, his needs are few.
Essentially, a happy puppy is a puppy that feels safe.
Preferably in your arms, or trotting along at your feet.
He is just a baby, and needs to be warm, well fed, and loved.
But he also needs to learn to cope with the new and strange things that life will throw at him.
Your job is a bit of a balancing act.
