What You Need to Prepare When Bringing Home a New Puppy
If you are a dog lover and you have a new puppy coming home, you need to be responsible and provide your pet all he needs from basic needs to love and care. The image of your little puppy sitting under your Christmas tree every morning is a source of sheer joy to kids. How do you properly prepare your family and your home for the coming of a new furry friend?
Your new puppy won’t know that it is wrong to pee on your carpet so you need to prepare a lot of puppy pads, and be sure to have a lot of kindness and patience, reward your puppy rather than punishing. When it comes to puppy accessories, it is better if your puppy will get used to wearing a collar, and choose one that is specifically for puppies which are adjustable and lightweight. Another accessory you need are gates to keep your lovely puppy in a destruction-proof room while you’re away to protect your puppy from falling down the stairs. Your puppies are teething and their sharp teeth will tend to chew on everything, so you need a mixture of puppy toys from soft ones to hard ones so your puppy can get the relief he needs and to protect your furniture. It is important to be firm and replace whatever your puppy is chewing with toys instead, and prepare your home by removing all dangerous and delicate items such as tablecloths and cleaning supplies out of your puppy’s reach. Use negative and firm noise so you can get the response you need from your puppy without you hurting him.
It is really exciting bringing a new puppy into your home, so show your puppy the love and kindness he deserves, and he will give it back to you tenfold. Take time to train your new puppy with the use of a gentle and rewarding training system. Research the right food for your dog or talk to a veterinarian because your puppy needs to meet his daily nutrient requirements, and follow proper feeding schedule. In order to prevent future problems, you have to make sure that your puppy’s papers are complete with complete immunization.
Our pets deserve to be given what they need, the best care, love, and attention because they provide a lot of health benefits, most especially in the psychological aspect of our being, helping us relieve stress, a source of pride and joy, and companionship.
