Why People Think Dogs Are A Good Idea

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. What are the things you need to prepare and prioritize?

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. It is important to buy 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 because puppies have sharp teeth and they love chewing almost anything. 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. For behavior modification, it is better to use firm and negative noise if your puppy chews on your furniture or displays unacceptable behavior so you can get the response you need from your puppy without you hurting your puppy.

Bringing a new puppy at home is a very exciting and fun experience, so don’t hesitate to show your love and kindness, and you’ll receive 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.

Your pets offer a lot of health benefits, most especially in the psychological aspect, helping us relieve stress, a source of joy, and companionship, so they only deserve the best care and attention from us.
