Are you a happy owner of a cute little puppy? Congratulations, now your life will be full of joy, laughter and unexpected surprises!
If you have never had a pet before, let us help you to become a happy puppy owner. We’ve got some tips and tricks to make you kick off that first month as a pro. So let’s get ready.
What will you need?
Make sure you have your home prepared a few days before your pup will arrive. You don’t want to run around not knowing what to do and what to buy for your little baby to be comfortable and safe. We have a list of the most important things to have at your house before you become a new puppy owner.
Puppy food. Of course, food is the most important part of preparation. However, you can’t just go and buy anything in a dog food supply store. You have a puppy so it will need a puppy food. Try to research which brand is balanced and nutritious for puppies as well as suitable for his breed and size. CBD oil supplements also can be a great addition to a dogs diet and simply will keep it calmer during the first stressful days at home.
Bed. Try to pick something really comfy so the new puppy feels at home and gets used to the new surroundings easily. In addition to a little bed, you can buy a blanket which will keep him warm.
Chews and Toys. As a new puppy owner, you want to make sure he is happy and has his toys to play. Dogs like to chew things, but puppies just love it! In other words, give him puppy toys to chew other than your valuable stuff. Remember that discipline for puppies is essential and you want to let him know what he can or cannot do.
Safe house. If you have a garden, make sure it’s safe for a puppy to run and play around. Check gardens for gaps where the puppy can crawl out of. Also, secure your gates which will stop a puppy from a curious opportunity to explore the outside world without you.
It can be a good idea to buy a stair gate to close that access to upstairs before he is ready. Sometimes new puppy owners don’t realize that a puppy is just like having a baby in the house. That’s why any open fires, sharp things, open bins, small items that might be swollen are extremely dangerous.
Try to check your house for any possible hazards before your new puppy will be in the house.
Now when you’re all set up, enjoy its company because you just got yourself a best friend!
