South Carolina Popular Dog Breeds and New Puppy Care Tips

The state dog for South Carolina is the Boykin Spaniel. This breed originated in South Carolina and was bred as a hunter’s companion. Boykin Spaniels are tireless, high-energy dogs that are perfect of active families in South Carolina.

Other popular breeds in South Carolina include Labradors, German Shepherds, and Beagles.

If you are thinking of buying a purebred puppy in South Carolina, here are some tips on caring for your new baby.

  • Book an appointment with a vet sooner rather than later after bringing your puppy home. Your pup may need vaccinations to get up-to-date. The vet can also guide you on the proper timeline to introduce your puppy to the world. To stay safe, a puppy needs a certain number of vaccines before they can meet other dogs or go to places where other dogs have been.
  • It’s important to give your puppy the high-quality, nutritious dog food. Initially, however, it’s best to continue the pup on whatever food the breeder had them on. Making too many changes too quickly can wreak havoc with the puppy’s digestive system.
  • Even young dogs need exercise, although it is minimal to begin with. Depending on her age, your puppy might spend a large part of the day sleeping. Roughly 5-15 minutes of active playtime twice a day is usually a good starting point for most breeds.
  • Once the vet gives you the all clear, it’s important to socialize your puppy with other people and other dogs. This helps the puppy become comfortable around others and reduces the chances of unpredictable behavior later in life. If you’re not sure how to socialize your pup, look for puppy training classes in South Carolina where your pup will get the chance to socialize with other dogs his age.
