How To Prepare:
BRINGING HOME A NEW PUPPY
A new puppy can be overwhelming.
6 Ways To Welcome Your New Puppy
1. PURCHASE NEW PUPPY ESSENTIALS
- Water bowl
- Collar & ID tag
- Dental kit (dog toothpaste & toothbrush)
- Scent & stain remover
2. SPOIL THEM WITH TREATS
It's a good idea to have "training treats" on hand to start training early.
Soft & Chewy Treats
3. CREATE A SAFE SPACE
✔ Keep things off the floor
✔ Be aware of wires
✔ Don’t leave socks around!
✔ Ensure all food/treats are out of reach
✔ Create a positive association with the crate
through games and special treats
Pro tip: As your puppy begins to see their crate as a safe space, try leaving them in for short periods alone time, even while you're home. This will help give your puppy some independence and could help prevent or reduce separation anxiety in the future!
4. SUPPORT THEM WHILE TEETHING
Don’t fall victim to chewed-up sneakers, chewed-up
purses, or chewed-up walls!
Invest in good chews and toys to distract your dog
while soothing their gums.
5. DON’T FORGET YOUR VISITS TO THE VET
Do your research and find a trusted vet in your neighbourhood. A good place to start is to consult family or friends that can refer you!
Pro tip: In their first 5 months, limit interactions with other dogs until they are fully up-to-date on vaccines and protected!
This can mean keeping walks short and keeping play time
within your own space.
6. HAVE FUN WITH TOYS
Puppies can have unbelievable levels of energy.
Help manage that puppy energy while also bonding
with your dog through training and playtime!
