Bringing a puppy home
Creating a good impression is key to ensuring that he/she sees you as it’s best friend. The manner in which you collect, bring home, and settle your puppy is important to starting your new rewarding relationship.
Bringing a puppy home, what is the right time?
It is important that you are bringing your puppy into a calm and relaxing environment. If you are moving, it may not be the best time to bring home a puppy. Your new puppy needs to be in a stable environment for the first few days at least so it can feel secure. If possible, collect your puppy a day or two before you have a few days off work, so you can get to know each other.
It can be very hard for your puppy transporting it to a strange new world. You need to make the transition as comfortable and safe as possible. Transporting your new puppy in a crate or carrier is always a good idea. Ensure if you are purchasing a crate that it is large enough that the puppy is comfortable and it can grow into it.
Once your puppy is home, the crate can also double as it’s den. You want your puppy to have an area where it can rest in peace and not get disturbed. This way you don’t have to purchase a second bed. It also helps in developing bladder control as puppies do not like to sleep where they soil.
