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. What are the things you need to prepare and prioritize?
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. 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. You have to prepare gates to keep puppies in a destruction-proof room while you’re away to protect them 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.
Having a new puppy at home can be a very exciting and enjoyable experience, and you’ll receive great benefits tenfold as long as you show love, care, and kindness to your newly adopted friend. 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. It is important to have a complete immunization for your puppy as well as his papers to prevent future problems.
As pet owners, we realize that our pets provide great benefits to us, most especially in relieving our stress and tension from work, they are our source of joy and pride, and they also make a good companionship, so they only deserve the best care and attention from us, and giving them the best basic needs.
