So you’ve decided to bring home a brand new Puppy Dog! A new addition to the family. We at pets are therapy are animal lovers and we were just as exited when we brought home our little bundle of joy!
I’m pretty sure you did all the research and everything you could to prepare the house and your family for the new arrival. You decided on the kind of breed, male or female, bog or small dog, it’s all very exiting!

1. Sleeping Area and a Place for Play time
It’s very important to set up an area where your new Puppy can safely settle in and get used to their new home. If you already have a dog or a cat, make sure to introduce them slowly and involve them in this adaptation phase. Also make sure to prepare a cosy Dog Bed in a safe corner where they can rest and sleep during this time. Some Dog Toys will help the process along. Cloud Reversible Bed

2. Puppy Toilet Training
As soon as the puppy has settled in, you should start toilet training. This takes time and lots of patience, and to make this process as efficient as possible, you will have to use a process called: “positive reinforcement training”. You have to select an area where you want the puppy to go to the toilet, make sure it has easy access, then reward your puppy every time it uses the toilet area.
You can do this by giving it a doggy treat, using a friendly tone of voice and by petting. Your puppy will soon associate pets and treats when it uses the designated toilet area. Foldable Pooper Scooper

3. Health Care For Puppies
Always make sure you get your puppy from a reputable breeder, Pet store or animal shelter. This way you can be assured of a healthy dog and making sure it has been vaccinated, de-sexed and microchipped. Always chat with your local vet to make sure it gets the right treatment, and to check whether it has been microchipped and vaccinated.

De-sexing is especially important if you don’t want unwanted pregnancies and your dog will be less likely to wander or fight over territory with other dogs in your community. Training Aids
