How To Prep Your Home For A Puppy

 A puppy can totally transform your life as you know it, offering endless love and attention whilst requiring care and thought in the process. Making sure that your home is ready for their arrival is such an important step, as your new pup needs to feel comfortable and content as soon as you let them through the door. Luckily, prepping your property for a puppy needn't be as difficult as you might think, as there are several simple tips and tricks that you can make the most of to get ready in no time at all. So, if you would like to find out more, read on!

Set Up A 'Chill Out' Zone 

One of the first steps that you may wish to take to make your house suitable for your new puppy involves setting up their very own 'chill out' zone. Every dog needs to have their own piece of personal space in which they can relax and unwind without any disturbances, allowing them to get some rest in a safe spot whenever they are feeling tired. Choose the right location for their chill out zone, such as close to a radiator if it's winter or near to the window if it's summer, and lay out a comfortable bed or pillow that they can use to sleep on. Make sure your puppy will have a big enough bed that allows them to grow and still fit inside easily, along with a couple of blankets or teddy's that they can utilize for extra comfort. It's a good idea to choose a 'low traffic' area of your home that is generally quiet and undisturbed, as they will wake up to check every noise or feeling of movement that they sense around them.

Source The Right Food

It's absolutely essential that you can take some time to source the very best food for your pup, as what they eat contributes massively to their overall health and wellbeing. Feeding your dog the cheapest dry kibble that you can find in the grocery store will do nothing but cause you more expensive problems further down the line, as low quality ingredients will no doubt trigger serious conditions over a period of time. Sourcing the right food for their specific breed or to match their individual needs in terms of intolerances or sensitivities will totally transform your pup - they will have bundles of energy, be ready and willing to socialize, and guarantee a good night's sleep to say the very least. You can type in your puppy's breed, for example mini teddy bear dogs, followed by phrasing related to diet or food requirements, as this will produce a vast array of relevant results that can be utilized to source the most suitable diet. It may be beneficial for you to source several options that your pup can taste test before you buy in bulk, as it's good to check how different brands will react with their stomach before making a permanent switch.

  22. I agree with everything. I gave my dog the same food that his previous owner did for a couple of weeks and it made him fart something awful. I changed his food and haven't had that particular problem since. lol
