August 22, 2008, Newsletter Issue #9: Tips for Bringing Home a New Puppy

Tip of the Week

It is finally time for the big event. You're bringing home a new puppy and you couldn't be more excited if it was a new baby! You want everything to be perfect, so you need to know if there is anything special you should do as you pick up your dog.

First, you will need a safe way to transport the puppy. Cuddling your new baby in your arms sounds like fun, but the reality of the first trip home can involve upset stomachs and weak bladders. A small crate with a towel in the bottom is a secure and cozy way to get your puppy from point A to point B. If you absolutely refuse to put your dog in a crate for the ride home, be sure your outfit is wash and wear.

Next, give your puppy a quick check before you head for the car, even if you've been to visit him every week for the past month. Be sure he looks alert and healthy and has a clean bottom.

Finally, make sure you have a copy of the vaccination record, pedigree information and a health guarantee before you leave. All of these are important documents for your dog's well being and it isn't the best idea to chance getting them at a later date.
