Bringing Home a new Puppy
I'm getting a new puppy! What do I need to do to make his transition into my home easier?
How exciting to bring a new puppy into the family! But no matter how exciting it is for you, remember that leaving the shelter or the breeder might be tough on your little guy.
Many puppies will cry or bark for the first few nights. As hard as it will be, owners need to let their puppy cry it out, and should not encourage the puppy to rely on his new parents for immediate emotional support during this time. It may take a few nights (or a few weeks) for your puppy to learn how to self-soothe, but once he does, he'll be a great addition to your family!
