The most important issues is to be certain we really will be committed to this puppy well being throughout all his life, a puppy welfare has to do very much with the structure we establish in his life, they are dogs, not humans, they come and think completely different than us human beings! So we need to comply and be asertive with their nature indtincts! We need to understand that obedience and structure will be necessary throughout the whole puppy -adult life! 


Its important for them to have a special “safe” home that means, crates to be used for the potty training and as a comfort zone, crates are never used for punishment! We need to have their food bowls and water bowl, leash, nylon collar, never leave the collar on in an unsupervised moment,  

Puppies should always have supervision and if mot supervised they meed to be inna secure place or area were there are no dangers. Excercise, very important, puppies need to explore and run out their energies, but never overdo thevexcercise it can hurt tjeir growing plates and joints.


Puppies need socialization, exposure, and some stressful events that they can feel they can accomplish. Its important to be under control and learn their names and the word come with inmrdiate action as well as the word Drop with inmediate response! This can be lifesavers!


Here we share a list of the most important details when we are bringing a new puppy to your home :



Bringing a new puppy into your home is an exciting and rewarding experience, but it also requires careful planning and preparation to ensure a smooth transition for both you and the puppy. Here are some important details to consider:


1. **Puppy-Proofing:** Puppy-proof your home by removing potential hazards like toxic plants, small objects that can be swallowed, and electrical cords.


2. **Supplies:** Gather essential supplies including a crate, food and water bowls, high-quality puppy food, collar, leash, toys, grooming tools, and a comfortable bed.


3. **Veterinary Care:** Schedule a veterinary check-up for your puppy. Discuss vaccinations, deworming, and a spaying/neutering plan if not already done.



4. **Training:** Enroll in puppy training classes to establish basic commands, proper behavior, and socialization skills.


5. **Potty Training:** Set up a designated potty area and be consistent with potty breaks to establish a routine.


6. **Feeding Schedule:** Establish a regular feeding schedule to help regulate bathroom habits and provide consistent nourishment.


7. **Safe Space:** Create a safe and quiet space where your puppy can retreat for naps and downtime.


8. **Socialization:** Introduce your puppy to various people, dogs, and environments to promote positive socialization.


9. **Chew Toys:** Provide appropriate chew toys to satisfy teething needs and prevent destructive chewing.


10. **Health Insurance:** Consider pet health insurance to help manage unexpected veterinary costs.


11. **Grooming:** Start grooming routines early, including nail trimming, brushing, and bathing.


12. **Pet ID:** Ensure your puppy wears a collar with an ID tag containing your contact information. And make certain the breeder placed a microchip and you should register it under your name


13. **Training and Bonding:** Spend quality time training and bonding with your puppy to build trust and establish a strong relationship.


14. **Health Monitoring:** Regularly check your puppy's health, including ears, teeth, eyes, and overall well-being.


15. **Exercise:** Provide age-appropriate exercise to burn off energy and keep your puppy physically and mentally stimulated.


16. **Patience:** Be patient as your puppy adjusts to their new environment. It's normal for them to have accidents or exhibit curiosity.


17. **Routine:** Stick to a daily routine for meals, walks, playtime, and sleep to create a sense of security.


18. **Social Media:** Share your puppy's journey on social media and connect with other pet owners for advice and support.


Bringing a new puppy home requires dedication, time, and effort, but the love and companionship you'll receive in return are truly priceless. Remember that each puppy is unique, and adapting your approach to their personality and needs will contribute to a successful and fulfilling experience for both of you.
