Best Ways to Prepare Your Home For a New Puppy
As a new pet owner, it is your responsibility to prepare your home for your new puppy, considering his basic needs, and the time, love, and care he will need to to stay free and happy. Indeed, the image of having a little puppy under your Christmas tree every morning can be a source of sheer joy to your kids. How do you properly prepare your family and your home for the coming of a new furry friend?
Always provide plenty of love, patience and kindness, and prepare a lot of puppy pads because your new puppy won’t know that it is wrong to pee on your carpet. When it comes to puppy accessories, it is better if your puppy will get used to wearing a collar, and choose one that is specifically for puppies which are adjustable and lightweight. You have to prepare gates to keep puppies in a destruction-proof room while you’re away to protect them from falling down the stairs. Puppies have sharp teeth and they love chewing almost anything, so you need to purchase a mixture of puppy toys from soft ones to hard ones so your puppy can get the relief he needs and to also protect your furniture and other important belongings. You need to be firm with your puppy and replace whatever your puppy is chewing with his toys to keep him from chewing on your furniture and pillows, and remove all dangerous and delicate items such as tablecloths and cleaning supplies away from your puppy’s reach. It is best to use firm and negative noise if your puppy chews on your furniture or any unacceptable behavior so you can get the response you need from your puppy without you hurting him.
Having a new puppy at home can be a very exciting and enjoyable experience, and you’ll receive great benefits tenfold as long as you show love, care, and kindness to your newly adopted friend. When it comes to training, remember that it takes repetition, and use gentle and rewarding training system instead of punishment. Your puppy needs to receive the right food to meet his daily nutrient needs, feeding following the right schedule, and being mindful of what your new pet needs. It is important to have a complete immunization for your puppy as well as his papers to prevent future problems.
As pet owners, we realize that our pets provide great benefits to us, most especially in relieving our stress and tension from work, they are our source of joy and pride, and they also make a good companionship, so they only deserve the best care and attention from us, and giving them the best basic needs.
