Good job!  You are off to a good start.  Keeping it clean is the most important thing to do.  I was told by my vet to clean a wound on my dog 3 times per day with peroxide.  I cleaned it at least that often (ok, I admit it, I was hyper-vigilant and cleaned it closer to 6 times per day) and he healed beautifully.
If you see ANY sign of infection, please take your dog to the vet asap.
