At last, you are bringing your puppy home from the breeder! While this might be exciting for you, leaving it's first home can be a daunting experience for the pooch so being adequately prepared for its arrival will help ease the transition, ensuring a comfortable calm environment.
You will obviously need to have food, water, and toys for your new puppy. But you should make sure to by the same food the puppy is used to eating, because puppies have sensitive stomachs and may handle a food change well. Try this for the first week or so, then you can gradually introduce the brand of food you want to feed him.
When you actually go to pick up your new puppy remember to bring a comfortable dog bed along with some chew toys. You might use a puppy sized basket and place a comfortable blanket in there for taking him home in. During the ride home make sure to pet the dog and speak to him in a comforting voice to relieve any fears he may have.
Although it might be hard to control your excitement, try to stay calm during the introduction of your new puppy to other family members or pets. Hold him gently in your arms as you give him a tour of his new home. This will help him feel more at ease in the new surroundings.
Every puppy needs his own little space and you should make sure you have all the right things before bringing your puppy home. You can do this by picking out a spot for him beforehand. Set down a dog bed, some toys, and a water bowl in an area you can devote for him. Gently encourage him to sleep and play in this spot, but don't be too overbearing. Let him explore and claim it on his own.
Your curious pup, in all his excitement at this new world, might not think much about food at first. You can feed him a little on his first day, but don't be surprised if he has other plans. Potty training is also vital to consider. Although it's a slow process, start by placing the puppy outside periodically and keeping a careful eye on him. When he goes to the bathroom, be sure to reward him properly.
When adopting a puppy, you want to be sure to set aside more time than usual during that first week to spend with your new pup. This shouldn't be too hard since most anyone I know who has a new puppy can't wait to spend time with him! By clearing your schedule before bringing your puppy home, you will insure that you have enough time to spend making him feel like a safe and secure member of the family.
