Preparing for New Dog or Puppy

Preparing for New Dog or Puppy

Preparing yourself and your household before, during, and after your pet comes home is an essential step to successfully integrating your new dog or puppy into its new environment. Give the new puppy or dog plenty of time to adjust; most experts recommend at least ten days. And, if possible, be sure to bring the extra addition at a time when you will be home for a period of two or more days in a row. These first few days are a shock and he needs a comforter to be there.

Preparing For Your New Dog or Puppy

So, before you bring your new dog home, especially if it’s a puppy, you’ll have to prepare your house for the arrival. Buy two new bowls, one for water and another for food. The smaller the dog, the smaller the bowl needed. You may even consider a propped bowl holder, which helps lessen the stress on the animal’s neck and keeps spills from occurring as often. Be sure to place the bowls and food in another room of the house, away from other pets.

You will also want to purchase a leash for your puppy or dog. A four to six-foot leash should do, even for training purposes. If you have your dog’s comfort in mind, perhaps when he is trained, you may want to try a harness leash. This type of leash attaches to the dog’s torso. Some newer models are made for leash training as well.
