How to Take Care of Morkie Puppies

    • 1). Secure your puppy's ID tags to a collar and place them around its neck immediately. You should be able to fit two fingers comfortably between the puppy's neck and the collar. Because morkies are a small breed, choose a collar that is no more than 1/2-inch in diameter.

    • 2). Put your new puppy's food and water bowls in a place it will be able to find easily. Fill the water bowl immediately. Feed your puppy twice per day. Pour no more than 2 cups of food into the bowl. If the puppy does not finish all the food in the bowl during the first feeding of the day, remove the bowl and return it at the second feeding.

    • 3). Take your puppy outside often. Place the harness around its body and attach the leash before opening the door to go outside. This will prevent the temptation to run off unsupervised. Play with your Morkie as often as possible. Morkies don't require much space to exercise, but they are very playful and have a personality that requires lots of attention.

    • 4). Bathe your puppy once every two weeks. You may bathe it intermittently if it gets particularly dirty, but you should avoid over bathing as it will dry out the puppy's skin and cause itching. Morkies are prone to skin sensitivity. Use a shampoo that's safe for use on sensitive skin.

    • 5). Brush your puppy daily to prevent matting and tangles. Morkies are a long-haired breed. If you don't intend to brush your puppy daily, keep its coat cut short.

    • 6). Place your puppy's kennel in a quiet location. The kennel should be a safe haven and a place to go when the puppy is tired, frightened or moody.

    • 7). Put your puppy's bed in a family-friendly location. Your puppy should be able to rest there and be near you. This will prevent loneliness and undesired isolation. Even if your puppy will sleep in the bed with you, it needs a personal lounging spot. Morkies are a very affectionate breed. Allowing them to participate in family time will prevent loneliness and depression, and acting out as a result.
