New Puppy? Try These Tips For Minimal Stress And A Happy Pup



Congratulations! Youve brought home your newest furry family member and you want to help them feel comfortable in their new home. Ideally, you will have prepared the basics before your new puppy arrives in your home, but it is to be expected that it will not all be smooth sailing from the first day on. 

Youre sure to run into some difficulty while getting your pup acclimated to their new life, so weve outlined some of the basics that can help you and your puppy feel more at ease while getting to know each other. 


Stock Up on Puppy Supplies

If you’re about to be a new, proud puppy parent, you probably have all the best toys, treats, food, bedding, and other necessary items ready to go. In the event that you dont have some of the necessities for your puppys first few days at home, you can shop online using a pet supply delivery service and get everything delivered right to you. This way, you wont have to worry about leaving your pup at home while you run to the store, and you can spend more time with them while making sure they have everything they need.

To make sure you are as prepared as possible beforehand, find a new puppy checklist for the essentials you will need– youll need more than you think. Some of the things you will need include puppy food, a leash and collar, a bed, toys, potty pads, and a crate. 


Make A Safe Space

When bringing home your new dog, create a dedicated space that is all theirs to help them feel comfortable. Whether this is an entire bedroom or a small enclosed playpen, your puppy should have a cozy space with blankets, toys, food, and a potty pad for them to use while you both figure out their potty training routine together.

Your new little friend will likely be nervous or scared in a brand new home, so having some warm blankets and an enclosed, protected space could provide comfort if your puppy would prefer to hide or be covered for the first day or two in their new home. 

Be sure to stay close to your puppy, talking to him or her regularly, providing physical and verbal affection to make them feel comforted and cared for. Bringing in a new family member can be stressful, but for your puppy, this is a whole new world. They are going to need some extra time and attention for them to feel completely at home with you.


Create The Perfect Routine

Keeping your puppy on a strict training routine will help them get acclimated to their new home and to your daily schedule. Taking your dog outside regularly for bathroom breaks is essential in establishing their routine. It is recommended that you take them out at least every two hours and after mealtimes.

In regard to mealtimes, keeping a regular feeding schedule for your pet will help them stay on track with their routine throughout the day, ensures that they are not being over or underfed and that they arent grazing constantly throughout the day. Especially if you work outside the home, getting your puppy adjusted to eating in the morning and the evening will help them keep their routine even when youre away at work.


Remember To Be Patient

Introducing a new furry friend into your life is a big change, and it will take you and your new dog some time to establish a daily routine that works for both of you. There will be messes and mistakes and frustrations, and that is all to be expected. 

Eventually, you and your puppy will grow together and find a routine that you both can work with. In the meantime, try your best and pay attention to your puppy’s cues for when they are hungry, sleepy, or need to go outside for the bathroom. This will help you learn their bodys natural routine, which you can then mold your own routine around. 

In the end, the messes and mistakes are all worth it when you look at your puppys sweet face and feel all of the love and joy that comes with having a pet and best friend. This will be a life-long bond for you and your dog, so if it takes a while to get things right, thats okay! Focus on enjoying your new furry friend, and everything will fall into place in time.
