On this week's edition of Positive Pets with MJ, Melissa offers up some tips for those who either just got, or are considering getting, a new puppy.

How do you get your home puppy-ready? How long do you need to wait before you invite friends over to see your new pet? What about letting them on the furniture, or out of their crate? All these questions are answered, and more.

Tune in every Tuesday night for Positive Pets with MJ, airing at 9 p.m. EST on WBSM TV and On Demand anytime on WBSM's YouTube channel. And call in during the live show at (508) 996-0500 with your pet questions.
