Bringing your furry friend to your humble abode is very exciting for you. You’re bouncing off the walls because you’re so thrilled. But, then you get nervous. Your palms get sweaty. You panic. You say to yourself “How do I bring him into an unfamiliar house? What do I do to make her relax and feel at ease?” Fret not. We’ve got you covered.
Give him a break
Upon arrival to your new home first allow your new dog a chance and time to relieve themselves outside. It helps them get to know their new yard or doggie space if you live in an apartment. Doing this also shows them where they should use the restroom.
Feed your friend
Show him where his food and water bowl are. Offer her or him their new doggie dish, with food of course to help your new family member feel comfortable in its new surroundings.
Take him on a tour
After eating take your dog from room to room. Only take them to rooms you do not mind them going into. Do not take them to rooms you do not want them entering.
Move hazardous materials
When bringing your baby canine home be sure to move hazardous things out of their way. Your dog is very curious and unsupervised will get into things it shouldn’t get into. Taking the role of a pet parent, you have to move all the hazardous things to a safe place that you are sure your new family member cannot reach.
Have toys ready
As part of their doggie care your active dog needs toys. Toys are a remarkable fun deterrents giving dogs something to chew on. Toys are helpful in making sure your pet is an active dog encouraging good dog health. Play with your dog and their toys to boost their interest and bond with them.
Make it permanent
Give them a permanent place to sleep. A dog bed to make their very own.
Have a play area for your dog
Every active dog needs a play area to run in. Dogs can become destructive without a place or a way to play. Giving your dog room to play spurs them on to fun and happiness for years to come.
