Bringing Home a New Puppy


Getting a puppy is an exciting thing to do, but there are lots of new responsibilities you will have once you bring them home. Here are some tips to help make the first few days a little bit easier to manage.

Make sure you have all the things your puppy will need before you bring them home for the first time:

  • bed
  • food
  • bowls for food and water
  • toys (lots of toys!)
  • poop bags

These basics will be essential and will help you to create a routine for your puppy.

One of the first things you will need to establish is a routine for peeing. Toilet training is difficult, but does not need to take too long. Simply set a routine where you take puppy outside to wherever you wish them to do their business and keep doing this every half hour or so. Praise them when they get it right by treating them.
