6 Videos That Show You What It Is Means To Bring Home A Puppy

If you ask a pet parent what it really feels like to bring a puppy home, most would liken the experience to bringing home a playful child. The experience is never perfect and there are always hiccups and bumps along the way as both dog and human learn to coexist under the same roof. However, what almost every pet parent will tell you is that every “accident”, every ruined slipper and scratched couch is more than worth it. Because along with chaos and the need for a lifetime supply of litter bags, puppies bring a certain magic into the house. They fill a space with love, joy and their own unique brand of crazy.

Over the past week we trawled through Youtube to bring to you a selection of videos that highlight the ups and downs (well mostly ups) of this singular experience. The variety of emotion we found in these videos just goes to show how unique yet emotional an experience this is. So if you missed out on the series, Essential Paw is here with a round-up of all the videos. Yes! That’s right, all that awesomeness in one single super magical post. Can you handle this much cuteness?!!!
