Bringing your new pooch home is always such a delight, and we’ve listed a few pointers to help get them settled in well:
Make it to the vet regularly
To make sure your four-legged friend is fit and healthy, take him/her to the vet and get them checked regularly.
Always remain patient
Whether it’s a new puppy or an older dog that you’ve adopted, you must always remember that your home is completely new to them, and it may take some time for them to adjust. Be patient with them and give them a huge amount of positive reinforcement, love and support.
Update their microchipped
If your dog somehow manages to escape to go on an adventure, the microchip easily identifies you as its owner once it’s found. To avoid potential emotional stresses later on, make sure your puppy or dog is microchipped to you and your address.
Speak to your vet about meals
Your vet is the best person to discuss the type of food, as well as when and how much food you should be feeding it.
Exercise them regularly
Dogs are active creatures, and will love nothing more than to go out for a run with you, play fetch, or anything else active. Take them out as much as you can. Be sure to browse the dog products for collars, toys and more for sale! And Check out our News section for great advise and tips.
Don’t buy new stuff for your dog right away.
Help your new dog adjust to its new home by not buying stuff right away. If your pooch came from a shelter, make sure to ask for its old bed, bowl, and toys. Your dog is still adjusting to its new surroundings, and his comfort is your main priority. Your dog will prefer using its old toys and gears, so the idea of spoiling your dog with new toys can be saved until later.
Spend some time with your dog.
Spend as much time as you can with your new dog. It will be difficult for your new dog to adjust to his environment if he is neglected. Even with your busy schedule, find some time to sit down and play with your dog. Making him feel loved and welcome is crucial in the adjustment process. They are still timid and stressful in this stage, but once you gain their trust, you’ll be able to establish a good relationship with your four-legged pal.
Conform to the local laws.
Before you buy a dog, make sure that you check the local laws first. Some states may ban a specific dog breed. It may be fine with your landlord to bring a dog in your apartment, but if it is prohibited by the law, you may find it difficult to apply for a permit and other important papers for your dog. List down all the banned breeds and make sure that when you visit the dog shelter next time, you consider the list on hand.
Start their training.
Since you’re getting to know with your dog each day, starting the training as soon as possible is highly recommended. For instance, if you live in a close-knit neighborhood, training your dog not to bark when there are strangers around can help. Or if you don’t have a doggie door in your house, teaching them, a bathroom schedule can save you from a lot of unpleasant potty troubles.
Ask for a calming medication.
If your dog is really troubled about moving to a new home, asking a calming medication from your vet can solve your problem. Some dogs are vulnerable and can feel a lot of stress in a new environment. This medication is also helpful for the trip to their new home.
Prepare activities for your dog.
To establish a strong bond between you and your dog, it can help to prepare a list of events for them. Scouting for dog-friendly restaurants is the first step. Looking for parks where you can walk your dog every morning is also recommended. Off-leash areas can also reduce their anxiety and introduce a new, comforting environment for them to run, play, and even do their business.
Introduce a pet-proof place.
This is for first-time dog owners. Pet-proofing your place is essential to the welfare of your dog. If a fence secures your property, make sure that it will be enough to keep them inside. Check for other places that they can use to escape.
Welcome them in a fun-filled home.
Your dog will be able to adjust faster if you introduce a fun-filled home for them. For instance, keeping dog food around the house and letting them search for it helps them to be familiar with the place. You can also invest in dog toys and brain games to keep the place fun and interesting to them. A food-dispensing toy is also a significant investment.
Keep them in a leash.
While it’s good to let your dog roam free and explore their new home, keeping them in a leash is recommended. It will keep them safe from potential danger and from eating unwanted food. Keep your dog in a leash until they are entirely familiar with their new home.
