For any relationship to become successful, you have to start with the basics. Pay attention to simple details like choosing the most cozy and safe place in your house for the dog to rest, and keeping sufficient toys and other necessary supplies handy for the dog’s playtime. Also, take out enough time in the beginning for the dog’s training.
Good planning will ensure a smooth transition and the chance to establish a healthy bond right away.
Adopting a dog is like welcoming a new family member. There’s something for everyone in your family to do when it comes to looking after your new dog. Just ensure that all family members have a clear understanding of their roles in the care-taking and that they all treat the dog in the same consistent manner.
Plan ahead and consider the budget for all the care your dog will need, including visiting the veterinarian, taking training classes, toys & food.
