Must-Haves? When a puppy first enters your home they may find it hard to get adapted to a new environment, so, here are some must-haves to make them feel happy at their new home.
If they’ve come from another home be careful to find out their favourite food, and treats are; otherwise it’ll be like starting again with them.
This may sound odd and unusual but first-aid kits, you don’t want to be left scurrying for supplies! Also a play-pen or baby gate might be useful! If you don’t want your pooch to go certain places in your house, let them know with a gate or play pen.
Play pens are great for keeping a small puppy in a good amount of space for a couple of ideas while you might need to pop out or for sleeping in, and gates are great for not going upstairs and shutting off doors etc, just like children.
Flea, tick and worm preventatives. Any of these causes would be horrible for a dog so make sure they’ve had it all done so there’s nothing to worry about!
Don’t forget a bed/crate, you’ll want somewhere where they can feel comfortable and make their own territory. This is where they feel most happy; if they’ve come from another home it might be best to ask if you can take the bed/crate they’ve been in so there’s not too much change for them.
TOYS, TOYS AND MORE TOYS MANIA! You’re dogs won’t be able to get enough, so the more toys the better!
Another must-have is an ID tag, so anyone can recognise your pooch if they get lost!
Last but certainly not least..
A Gencon dog head collar. The dog head collar will get their dog walking training off to the right start!
The Gencon® All-in-1 and Headcollars are made from soft yet durable fabric and are specifically designed not to pull up into your dog’s eyes or uncomfortably turn their head, making them the perfect lead training accessories for grown dogs and puppy walking.
The Gencon consists of two simple loops that apply gentle pressure when your dog pulls, the lead gently but effectively stops your dog pulling forwards.
