Dogs - Preparing for Your New Puppy

Your New Puppy

Before you bring your new puppy home, it may be a good idea to take some time to prepare for the arrival. The first few days, weeks and months of your puppy's life are very important in the establishment of a bond with the new family. You must be consistent and firm, whilst at the same time give your new friend a happy and secure place to live. If you have other animals in your house, introduce them gradually. Do not feed or leave them together until they have become friends.

Choosing a name for your puppy

Naming your puppy can be fun. Agree with the rest of the family on a name, so that you can maintain consistency. It is no good calling a puppy a name that half the family are not happy with! They are not likely to use it. If the name can be shortened or a nick name is likely to derive from it then, should they be used, confusion in the dog's mind can arise. Ideally a dogs name should be short with two syllables. The reason is, the name won't be confused with single syllable words like 'Sit', 'No' and 'Down'. When your puppy recognises the name, give lots of praise and in the early stages a small reward.
