Welcoming a New Puppy
Topic: Puppy Preparation

 Save yourself from stress and prepare ahead of time for your lovable Puppy. 

If you are preparing to bring home a new puppy make sure you have received the advice of a trainer on what dog will fit you and your family the best. Before actually getting the new puppy, get everyone on board with training, housebreaking & walking responsibilities. Your pup will ease into all the new house rules much quicker if everyone is following the same techniques. 

Your house should be puppy proofed before the little one arrives if you want to keep your gadgets, antiques and dress shoes in one piece. Remember that your pup does not know that those were your nice Gucci shoes and that soft, thick rug was an antique. For a puppy, those shoes looked like a fun toy and that rug felt like a good place to relieve a full bladder. Your puppy isn't trying to annoy you; he just needs to learn the house rules. He will need your direction on going potty outside and chewing on a rawhide instead of your work shoes. 

I recommend seeking out a positive trainer and beginning training as soon as you bring your new pup home. With positive reinforcement techniques you can start training your puppy as soon as 8 weeks! Don’t wait till your pup is 6 months old and has developed a plethora of behavioral issues, start right away and you’ll be happy you did.
