If you’re bringing a new dog home, keep these tips in mind to help your new furry family member get settled in.

6 tips for bringing home a new dog

  1. Communicate. Make sure all family members are on board with a new dog. Set up rules and routines for the whole family. 
  2. Supplies. Have all pet supplies ready before you bring your new dog home.
  3. Safety. Pet-proof your home. Remove anything that your dog could damage or that could harm your dog.
  4. Introductions. Make sure to stay calm and allow your dog say hello to everyone. Make slow introduction with resident pets.  
  5. Training. Puppies and dogs benefit from obedience class where they can socialize and learn the basics.
