Home Preparation For a New Puppy
By Budda Oliver
The addition of a new puppy to a home is a cause for celebration. Whether it is a golden retriever, a boxer, a collie, or a terrier, puppies are adorable pets that will quickly form a lasting place in your home. As puppies age, they become more secure in the home environment and mature into more responsible, and rule-abiding friends, but during those first few months there is a fair amount of training that needs to be done if your pet is to ever adapt the home-lifestyle.
No one would contest that the puppy’s cuteness and fun is outweighed by their penchant for staining carpets, chewing couches, and barking relentlessly, but all the same, as a homeowner preparing to buy a new dog you should know both the risks and the preparation strategies for inviting a puppy into your home. As they say, the best defense is a good offense, so take a proactive, offensive approach to puppy-proofing your home by contacting odor and stain removal services and closing your yard.
The most obvious threat that a baby canine will pose to your home is the potential to leave waste in the house and on your rugs. There is no way to prevent this from happening before your baby dog arrives in the residence. The puppy’s personality and their adjustment to the new environment will be key factors in the way they are able to control themselves and keep your rugs clean, but this ability will only differ by degree because there are very few young dogs in the world that were born to be house trained.
A pup must be house-trained by their owner in their new home after they arrive, and they must be taught with patience and understanding. That being said, what can you as a homeowner do in the mean time to prepare for your puppy’s arrival? Try getting in contact with local rug service providers to identify the rugs in your house that will be especially susceptible to being soiled. If you find that one or more of your rugs would incur a very high level of damage, consider walling off that rug with a gate, or removing the rug and putting it in storage until your whelp has been trained. Additionally, contact multiple pet odor removal services and ’shop around’ for the best prices and companies.
An overlooked aspect of doggie care is the fact that your pup at some point will need to go outside. Many pet owners neglect to provide their pets with adequate exercise and fresh-air, leading to depression and lethargy in the animal. While you as a pet-owner may not (and need not) have the time and energy to keep up with your puppy’s exercise needs at all hours of the day, you should not take your inability to run laps around your house with your pet as a sign that your pet should suffer. If you cannot take your puppy out for a vigorous walk at least once a day, make a border around your yard using a traditional picket fence or an invisible, electric fence so that your dog will be sure to get the exercise that it needs.
A puppy is a great joy in the life of any homeowner. While they provide hours of entertainment and quickly become important members of the family, they can also bring problems into the home. Prepare for your new pet by taking a proactive approach to your puppy’s specific challenges.
