Preparing Your Home For a New Dog
Puppy-Proofing Your Home
Puppies are just like little kids — curious and ready to explore. Make sure your home is puppy-proof by securing loose wires, removing toxic plants, and keeping small objects out of reach. This will ensure your new pet can explore safely.
Investing in Essential Supplies
Equip your home with essential supplies before bringing your new puppy home. These include a comfortable bed, food and water bowls, high-quality puppy food, toys, a leash, a collar, and an ID tag. As we work closely with reputable breeders, we can offer advice on the best supplies for different breeds.
Setting Up a Feeding and Potty Training Schedule
Setting a consistent feeding and potty training schedule is crucial for your new puppy. Puppies need to eat three to four times a day and should be taken outside frequently for bathroom breaks. This helps establish a routine and aids in successful potty training.
Finding a Trusted Veterinarian
Regular vet check-ups are essential for your puppy's health. Before you bring your new pet home, find a trusted local veterinarian. They will guide you on vaccination schedules, flea and tick prevention, and other aspects of your puppy's health.
