Preparing Your Home For A New Puppy

Preparing Your Home

When you bring a new puppy into your home, he needs a private place of his own, a warm bed, and maybe even a kennel outside. A new puppy is a new member of the family. Therefore, you need to think about the changes this new arrival will make to your life. Please bear in mind that for the puppy, the change in his life - leaving his natural family and moving to a completely new world, with new faces and sounds - will be both exciting and stressful. Here are some early steps you can take to ensure the transition is smooth.

Introducing Your Puppy To Members of the Family

Children will naturally want to play with the new puppy, pick him up and pet him. Do this carefully at first. Give the pup a place his own where no one will bother him and where he can relax. As he grows and gets used to his surroundings, will naturally get more active in seeking out contact with you or the children in your home.

A Suitable Room

Find a warm place, away from drafts, perhaps in the kitchen or living room. Puppies will chew everything, so you should remember that the material you use to make a bed for your puppy should not be harmful for him. In the short term, you could use a cardboard box with the front removed. Line the bottom with newspaper or an easily washed blanket. But as your dog grows, it is recommended that you buy a special, hard-vinyl dog bed. Alternatively baskets made from any material can be used for older dogs that have outgrown the chewing stage.

Outside Kenneling

If you live outside the city, a dog house may be a good idea. If you do want to kennel your dog, you should set it up in spring or summer so that the puppy will gradually get used to his environment before winter arrives. The kennel should be about double the width of the adult, fully grown dog. It is very important that it is dry and raised from the ground. Therefore, we recommend setting it on a stand. Ideally the roof or one of the sides should also be hinged to allow easy cleaning. Dogs in kennels need a good, warm bedding. Please check to see if your municipality has laws in effect that regulate the dimensions of a dog kennel.

Make Sure You Have Your Puppy's Food

Although you may think all pet food manufacturers have your pet's best interests in mind, this is not always the case. Current pet food regulations allow manufacturers to use ingredients that you would never knowingly give to your pet. In fact, you may be shocked to learn what some brands of pet food really contain. Watch this short presentation before you commit to a brand of food for your loving companion.

Make Sure You Have Your Puppy's Vitamins

Every puppy, like children, need to take vitamins while they are growing in order to be healthy. Do the right thing for your puppy and its health and order your NuVet vitamins today.

Every meal in a puppy's life is crutial to its overall health! A good quality dog food is very important. Just as important are the Nuvet Nutritional Supplements to ensure that your new puppy is getting the proper micronutrients that its growing body needs.

When you read the nutritional content of a high quality dog food, they emphasize the macro-nutients which are the proteins, carbohydrates and fats. These are important but how can you be sure that there are adequate micro-nutrients; i.e. Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Potassium etc.

The bottom line is that there is no way to know for sure that dog food alone is sufficient. That is where Nuvet Nutritional Supplements come in to play. They fill the nutitional gaps that exist in even the best dog foods.
