Bringing Home a New Puppy – 5 Tips for New Puppy Owners

 

Are you about to bring a new puppy home and want to set your new family member up for ultimate success?

1. Create Your Plan As a Family

  • Structure/Boundaries
    • What will the puppy be allowed to do and what is he not allowed to do
  • Be on the same page
    • Puppies will quickly find the weak link 
  • Consistency
    • Everyone in the house has to be consistent in what they expect from the puppy.  Don’t get lazy

2. Prepare Your House

  • Puppy Proof (Cords, plants, kids toys)
  • Kennel/Play pen
  • Needed Items
    • Bowls, leash, collar

3. Feeding Time

  • Breeders Food (make sure to get the food the breeder had the puppy on)
  • How much to feed and how often
  • Rules to switching food

4. Toys

  • Balls
  • Stuffed Toys
  • Chew Toys

5. Start Teaching the Basics

  • Name
  • Sit
  • Down

Bonus:  Top mistake we see new puppy owners make: Using the dog’s name when they make a mistake instead of using the word no!
Their name needs to be desirable and the word no should be undesirable.
