The excitement over the arrival of the new member should not make you forget everything you need. It will be the first time you move away from the only known environment, so you do not feel overwhelmed, during the days before your arrival makes sure you have all the necessary purchases made. Having a house ready to receive a dog, means that it does not find anything that is dangerous, harmful or that may adversely affect your health. Examine your home and make a list of the changes you must carry out.
In the houses, there are all kinds of potentially toxic products that must be out of reach. Keep everything you want that does not bite, take special care in electrical cables and small pieces that can choke. If you have a pool, you should cover it. Protecting stairs and balconies is convenient. If you buy a fence for ladders like those used with small children, you will be calmer. A wall can also help protect your furniture. Close the doors of the rooms you do not want to enter.
Life at home: toilet and toys
For dogs, especially puppies, the moment of grooming reminds them of when they were with their mother. It is, therefore, an experience that goes beyond cleaning and grooming. Among the list of utensils that you will need are a comb or brush, dog shampoo, anti-flea products, a pair of nail scissors and an ear cleaner. It is necessary to have a unique brush depending on the characteristics of the hair type of the dog.Before making the purchases, consult your canine veterinarian or hairdresser to advise you better. Plan daily grooming sessions, not only for beauty but the good health of the coat, as it helps to promote blood circulation
One of the best methods to establish links with your dog will be through the game. In this way, it will be easier to create emotional bonds and teach behaviors. In the specialized stores, there is a vast variety of toys for your purchases. On your list, you should not miss rings, balls, teethers and flying discs. All of them are designed to make the game and training sessions more fun for both.
