Three Things to Do With Your Christmas Puppy
Make Sure You Have the Right Puppy SuppliesDid you buy a puppy without all the necessary stocking stuffers? If your family is going to raise a happy, healthy pooch, you need the right puppy supplies. Petland Overland Park carries a number of high-quality puppy food brands along with the leashes, dog crates, beds, collars, toys, bowls, treats, and other puppy supplies you'll need to keep your new Christmas puppy happy into 2015!
Acclimate the Puppy to a New EnvironmentWhen you buy a puppy, it's crucial to help them adjust to their new environment. Creating a safe space for your Christmas puppy is a great idea. Buy a puppy crate and a dog bed and introduce your puppy to the space soon after bringing him home. Be sure to use praise and treats as positive reinforcement when crating your puppy.
Socialize!The first few months of your puppy's life are crucial, so after you buy a puppy, resist the urge to be the sole person who cuddles and walks your pooch. Instead, aim to introduce your Christmas puppy to tons of new people, as doing so properly can help you avoid later behavioral issues. If you introduce your puppy to more people now and create positive associations, they will feel more comfortable interacting with new people later.
