In this video, it appears Chow Chow Bebeto is being introduced to his new home. His mom holds him in her arms and walks around the house, as if to acquaint Bebeto with where things are. If you are about to bring a puppy home, Vets Adopt Pets has some suggestions to make the introduction and the first days smooth and orderly.
How to introduce a puppy to his new home
When your puppy is here, it would be a good idea to show her where her bathroom is. Maybe let her have a bathroom break before entering the house. Some people like to let the puppy explore the house on her own, and then mop up the house afterwards. 🙂 One idea that Vets Adopt Pets is to leash the puppy, and give her a tour of the house. Then take her to her area where she’ll be comfortable for the next few days getting acquainted with the family members.
Give the puppy a dedicated space to eat and sleep
In this puppy section, put the water bowl, food bowl, crate, or dog bed, and a couple of toys. Keep these items in the same place because dogs prefer order. A puppy can find comfort in a crate that’s just large enough for her to stand up, turn around, and sleep. It’s cozy, it feels safe. It’s her place to escape from people when she’s played enough, or when she just wants to be alone.
How to prepare the puppy his first night home
Before she goes to bed that first night, tire her out first with activities that doesn’t over stimulate her. This way, she may sleep through the night, or at least a few hours in a row to give you your beauty rest.
And if your pup wakes up in the middle of the night and starts fussing, it’s a good time to take her out for a bathroom break. In the morning, first thing, take the pup outside. Enjoy watching Bebeto being pampered by Mom.
