What You Need to Prepare When Bringing Home a New Puppy
As a new pet owner, it is your responsibility to prepare your home for your new puppy, considering his basic needs, and the time, love, and care he will need to to stay free and happy. Indeed, the image of having a little puppy under your Christmas tree every morning can be a source of sheer joy to your kids. How do you prepare your home and your family for the coming of a new puppy?
Always provide plenty of love, patience and kindness, and prepare a lot of puppy pads because your new puppy won’t know that it is wrong to pee on your carpet. 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. Your puppy will grow and they would be able to climb over the gate if it’s too short, so choose an adjustable and acceptable height of gates to keep your puppy in a destruction-proof room while you’re away to protect him 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. You need to be firm with your puppy and replace whatever your puppy is chewing with his toys to keep him from chewing on your furniture and pillows, and remove all dangerous and delicate items such as tablecloths and cleaning supplies away from your puppy’s reach. It is best to use firm and negative noise if your puppy chews on your furniture or any unacceptable behavior 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. Training involves taking repetition, so teach your puppy using 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.
