Bringing home a new four-legged family member is exciting! However, there are a few important things to remember.
- Your pet needs time to adjust to new environments, just like humans.
- Count on your new pet marking or having accidents in the first few days. This will happen even if they are housetrained.
- Be prepared for some transitional behavioral problems. Each animal will need time to adjust to the rules and schedule of your home.
- “Puppy Proof” your home. Don’t leave out shoes or other items they may try to chew on.
- Don’t leave your new pet unattended in the home. When you are unable to supervise them, confine them to a crate, kitchen, or other secure area.
- Always keep dogs on a non-retractable leash when out for walks! This will keep them from darting in front of a car or running to chase a neighbor’s cat.
