Bringing your pup home

The day he / she is welcomed in to your home place a blanket at its sleeping corner. On the first night, expect your pup to whimper; it is only natural. Before going to bed, play with your pup and tire it out. If your pup are uneasy or whimper, kindly do not take it into your bedroom as that leads to an unhealthy habit, it is better to make them sleep at their corner better and healthy habits. After a few nights it should settle down quite happily at its sleeping corner. Put some paper near your pup to use as its pop’s dropping area.

When you get up in the morning , as a good habit take your pup straight out into the garden or colony open spaces for its  toilet. Do not punish your pup if it has performed during the night, always praise it on its cleanliness and his regular habit of going for a poop outside the house into the open.

How do I know if a pup is healthy 

A healthy pup will have bright eyes and a shiny coat. In case you are not sure consult a Vet on Home4Pet.Com.

What are the signs of a good and healthy nature

A pup should be active, interested and playful. It is not a good sign if the pup is nervous or appears sleepy all the time. However, normal pups do sleep for long periods being still very young but if still you have more questions please consult a Vet on Home4Pet.Com.

 Feeding your pup

Feed the same type of food for at least a few days and introduce any new diet gradually after due consultation with a Vet. Do not give too many treats. Feeding should take place at the same times each day (this makes toilet training easier) and it is best to feed your pup immediately after you have eaten that way it inculcates a habit to be patient. Make sure that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions of the food packs on feeding and also regularly monitor your pup’s condition. Do not allow it to become fat.

Vaccinations

If your pup has been vaccinated you should maintain a health card as given by a Vet. If it has not been vaccinated, ask our Vet for advice on a suitable vaccination programme . All pups tend to have worms and so a regular worm treatment (usually every two weeks) is recommended. Our Vet can be consulted on a suitable course of treatment if required.

 What accessories do I require?

Toys, Food and Water Bowls, Bed and grooming equipment are all part of a essential and healthy life of the pet.

Socialization

Your pup should only be allowed to mix with other fully vaccinated dog until it has completed its course of vaccinations (around 12 to 14 weeks). If you have other pets introduce them gradually and always in your presence.

There are many ‘ socialization ’ sessions that can be organized where your pup can learn to mingle with others of its kind. Details of such trainers are available on Home4Pet.Com. In your enthusiasm do not overwhelm your pup, but introduce it to new things slowly and gradually for more info you may call our helpline.

Bringing your pup home

Take a blanket to your pup’s home a few days before you collect it, and ask that it be put where it sleeps. Then when you take your pup home, pop the blanket in a sealed bag and put it in its new bed – it will help it feel at home.

On the first night, expect your pup to whimper; it is only natural. Before going to bed, play with your pup and tire it out. Make sure it goes in the garden to spend a penny (and praise it when it does). If your pup whimpers , do not on any account go to it and do not take it into your bedroom. After a few nights it should settle quite happily. Put paper down for your pup to use as a toilet seat.

When you get up, take your pup straight out into the garden to go to the toilet. Do not punish your pup if it has performed during the night, but praise it if it is clean and always praise it when it goes where it should – in the garden.

What more do I need to do

Register your pup with a vet as soon as possible and you have your pup micro chipped. It is a good option to keep track of your loved one in case he or she is lost in your absence. Such devices can be found on Home4Pet.Com.

Regular daily grooming will help keep your pet in a state of good health. Dental disease is very common in dog and this can be avoided by daily brushing their teeth. Special type of brush and pet tooth pastes are available. Do not use any human toothpaste as this will foam up in your pup’s mouth and may lead to a dislike for its taste and an awkward situation.

Neutering

Pup can be neutered from a young age. Please remember that neutering is not only a birth control measure but also help avoid bad behavior and health problems in later life.
