How to Get Your Dog Introduced into Your Home

Firstly, congratulations on getting a new pup. You are set right on the journey of unconditional love and affection. That being said, let’s jump to the essential tips that’ll help you ease your new dog into his new home. New parents can be pretty clueless about relaxing their new pup with the home. Your pup’s first interaction with you and your home sets the direction of where the relationship will head.

To ensure that everything goes smoothly and the pup enjoys the new place, here’s some advice to remember:⠀ ⠀

1. Don’t Rush:⠀

Getting a new pup can be an exciting event for individuals and the whole family. It is important that behave in a balanced manner. Too much excitement can scare off the pup. Maintaining calm behaviour at all times will make the pup comfortable in no time.⠀ ⠀

2. Take them for a walk:⠀

Let the dog know and feel its surroundings. Once you see the pup has comfortably spent a couple of hours in the new home, you must immediately take them for a walk. It’ll make the pooch familiar with the surroundings and also get him exercised.⠀ ⠀

3. Establish rules:⠀

Dogs can be pretty curious about new places. Being a parent, it is your job to start teaching the rules from day one. Dogs are brilliant at reading body language. Try and communicate with them. You’ll also be amazed to see that they are way smarter than one would usually think.⠀ ⠀

4. Introduce them to the feeding area:⠀

Take them to the place where they’ll get food and water. Also, if you have decided to dedicate a specific area of the house to the dog, then show him that. Treat him there, so he gets trained.⠀ ⠀

5. Make them feel at home:⠀

Try and do anything and everything that makes the pup feel at home. Remember, they’ve come from a place which they thought is home. A sudden change of place and completely new faces around can be overwhelming for your new furry friend. Make sure there isn’t anything that can trigger resentment in the pup.⠀
