A responsible owner knows that buying or adopting a dog is a big responsibility.
A new member of the household will enter their life and will require attention, proper upbringing, care for health and well-being. So before your puppy arrives home, it’s worth getting ready for its arrival.
Puppies require special care. They are separated from their mother and find themselves in a completely new environment. For this reason, they can be scared and apathetic. In addition, they need the right food that will provide them with the necessary nutrients and the right amount of calories for their proper development
Here are some tips to consider when completing a layette for your pet:
- The puppy must have a resting place – bedding should be soft, durable and of the right size. It is worth buying a mattress, pillow or playpen, from which the dog will not grow out of quickly. It’s a good idea to locate the lair in a secluded place, from which, however, the dog will have an insight into what is happening in the house.
- It is worth stocking up on a few safe toys for your puppy, thanks to which the animal will spend time in activity. A bored dog, especially during the period of permanent replacement of the dog’s milk teeth, If the puppy is left alone at home, and it cannot use the kennel yet, it is worth removing from its field of vision all objects that may attract attention, e.g. decorations, shoes, flower pots (some plants are poisonous to animals) – all this will certainly interest a curious dog.
- Puppy bowls should have a non-slip bottom, other models should be placed on an additional mat to prevent slippage. A small dog does not always know how to take care of its physiological needs while walking. If the dog is still doing things at home, instead of newspapers, it is better to put a training mat on the floor for learning to clean (e.g. with the smell of fresh grass that is only felt by animals), will serve as a toilet for the puppy in the first weeks of life. It should lie permanently in a designated place, preferably near the exit door.
