You’ve spent countless hours on choosing the breed of puppy and identifying a great rescue group or breeder. You’ve spent a substantial amount of money to buy the puppy and you’re getting super excited about bringing her home. Why risk things going wrong with her behavior when you can get off on the right foot from the get-go?
Do you know that all these behaviors are largely created by pet parents and you can avoid them?
- Barking at the doorbell
- Pulling on leash
- Aggression towards people and other animals
- Fear of storms, loud noises, vacuum cleaners and hairdryers
- Destructive chewing
- Inappropriate elimination in the house
You can avoid these problems!
The best thing you can ever do when getting a puppy is to have a consultation with me a few weeks before the puppy arrives.
I come to your home and provide you with a detailed check list of items you will need to buy and tasks to complete prior to the puppy coming home. I can advise on finding a veterinarian, puppy proofing the house, buying appropriate toys, food, treats and equipment, where to locate a crate/ex pen, how to potty & crate train, the socialization process (the crucial first 16 weeks of a puppy’s life) and much more! This is an invaluable investment in your puppy’s life.
By taking this consultation you can avoid so many of the problems that people struggle with when they get a new puppy or even adult dog.
It makes a great gift too!
I can also help you define the criteria for the most suitable dog or puppy to adopt and work with rescue groups to find her.
