Preparing for A New Puppy

If you are one of the lucky folks to welcome a new puppy into your home recently - or you plan to soon! - here is a great article from the ASPCA on preparing to bring your new puppy home.  This is a great time to establish a success plan for your pup's care.  We are here to help!  With a wide range of options - and tons of free samples - we can help you find the perfect products for your pup.  Stop in with your new little one! 

"Bringing home a new puppy is truly one of life's joys. Thoughtful pre-puppy preparations and a well-planned first 24 hours can give your fuzzy bundle of promise a head start and make your dreams of the perfect family dog come true.

Before the Big Day Once household discussions have established that everyone wants a dog of a certain age and breed, where to get the pup—from a shelter or reputable breeder—is more or less determined. Now, family meetings should cover scheduling:

 

- Who will take the pup to the papers or backyard and when?
- Who will be in charge of feedings three to four times a day?
- Who will make veterinary appointments for vaccinations and deworming?

 

Also, take time to create a vocabulary list everyone will use. If Mom says "down" when Puppers climbs on the couch, Dad says "down" when he wants him to lie down, and Junior utters "sit down" when he expects the pup's rear to hit the floor, the result will be one confused dog! Putting the schedule and vocabulary list in writing prevents confusion and will help dog walkers, nannies, and others involved in raising Puppers.

Next, draft a shopping list and purchase supplies: food and water bowls, chew toys, grooming supplies, bedding, collar and leash, identification tag, crate, gate, and odor neutralizer. Pre-puppy shopping allows you to order from wholesale catalogs or visit the pet superstore in the next county without the pressure of Puppers needing it right now.
