Pomp and circumstance, let’s do a happy dance — puppy is coming home! The big day has arrived when you and the breeder agree that puppy is properly weaned and of age to make that big step. Puppy will be excited about beginning this new adventure, but these feelings will most likely be mixed with some sadness. Fellow littermates will be quickly missed, and possibly the parents, as well as the handlers from their former home. This is only natural, but so will be its transition to beginning a new life with you.
Oh boy, oh boy! A new puppy, and she’s a charmer! So congratulations — you did the legwork, researched the breeds, and made a sound investment. The hard work is now over, you say? Sorry … not by a long shot!
Yes, you’ve found the perfect puppy, and this is an important first step. Now comes the fun part: getting ready for your puppy’s arrival so you’re new life together starts off on the right paw – err, foot! Trust me, the more you prepare, the more welcomed your puppy will feel and the easier the transition will be!
