Homecoming For Your New Dog
Once you arrive at your home with your new dog, take him or her for a quick walk on a leash first. Allow the dog to familiarize with the surroundings, the scent of his new home, and to get acquainted one by one with the members of the family. Prepare his things and his crate a week before he arrives. Once he arrives, pick a unique place and urge him to potty there. Be tolerant; it might take 10 or 15 minutes for them to get used to the place and where he can pee or poop. Give treats once he learns to establish his chosen spot for his potty needs.

Bring your new dog home when you can set aside a ton of time to get introduced and know each other. Make it a weekend or when you can take two or three days and just stay home to train and keep the dog secure. Get to know each other and truly become more acquainted with one another to make your new dog will feel confident, calm, and familiar with you.

Let the new dog step into the house and walk around. Preferably keep the dog on a leash during this welcome party. In case he lifts his leg, give him a speedy leash instruction by giving a quick pull on the leash and a quick release. Follow it up by saying “No” in order to make him stop moving. Take the dog out instantly and come inside again if he remains calm, and then give him a treat every time he behaves with his potty training.

Keep in mind that your new dog will be energized and excited about his new home. Try not to be astonished at gasping and pacing, housetraining mishaps, too much drinking or biting, or gastric problems. If the new dog is not yet neutered or spayed, it is prone to make a mark in their chosen territory, particularly if different pets lived and occupied the same home with him/her. Advise each individual from your family to oppose the enticement to overpower another dog. Allow the dog to have enough time and space to get familiar with their new home.

After the introduction stage, bring him to his designated crate. Urge him to sniff around his area and prize him with little treats for entering and staying in the box. Keep delicate sheet material and safe toys in the carton; pivot the toys for assortment.

Schedule a medical check up to monitor the new dog’s health. Plan a scheduled appointment with the veterinarian a week after the new dog’s arrival to your home. This way, the vet can assign his immunization schedule and determine whether the new dog can be neutered or spayed. Converse with your vet or read more about the advantages of spaying and neutering. With unreasonably numerous homeless dogs roaming around don’t let your new pet add to the issue of overpopulation.
