If you are expecting a ne puppy at home, it is important to get prepared so you are able to provide the basic needs of your pet, and not to forget the time you need to invest, provide love, care, and attention for a happier and healthier dog. 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 properly prepare your family and your home for the coming of a new furry friend?
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. It is much better if you get your puppy to wear a collar the sooner, and there are puppy-sized collars which are lightweight for puppies that can easily be adjusted. 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. 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. 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.
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. When it comes to training, remember that it takes repetition, and use gentle and rewarding training system instead of punishment. Choose the right food for your dog by being mindful of the needs of your pet. In order to prevent future problems, you have to make sure that your puppy’s papers are complete with complete immunization.
