    After 6 weeks old there is no need for him to be on puppy milk. you should just let him drink water :)

    If your puppy is under 6 weeks he still needs puppy milk and needs to be weaned. If he's over 6 weeks he should have been weaned and therefore no longer needs milk :) Feed him a good puppy diet and he'll do just fine with water

    We gave our puppy milk on the first night he came home but never bothered again after that, he likes it, but doesn't need it. He'll happy enough drinking water.

    Aw sweet :D

    Now he's played and had something to drink you should take him in the garden to see if he will pee. It's never too early to start :)

    That's right. Always let him out every 15-20 mins plus after every meal and every nap.

    Nay!! you dont need to give the puppy any milk at all now, just water is good for it, as long as you have it on a good quality puppy food, I like the dry food it have alot of added vitamins etc which is good for a puppy so you also dont need any extra added suppliments. Good luck with your little one and have fun. xxx
