As a fellow pet lover, I don’t need to tell you the level of joy and affection that our four-legged friends bring to our lives. That’s why here at Aosom we’re committed to making the best experiences for you and your dog. We have all the products that animal lovers need and that pets themselves want.
It’s important to note, pet ownership is not all fun and games though, especially at first. Raising a puppy does have its own unique challenges. Take housebreaking for instance. Without the proper equipment and training knowledge, you are ultimately setting yourself up for failure. This article is more about learning how to establish a stress-free environment for both you and your new pet. That way you can spend more time bonding and less time being frustrated with your new furry family member.
Setting Up the Proper Environment
Before you get started you’ll have to prepare your home for the arrival of your new puppy with some of these must have items.
Make a Dedicated Space in Your Home
First off, it’s crucial that your new puppy have a space of their own inside of the house. This is a place that your dog can always come back to either when their tired or when they are feeling a little anxious. Offer your puppy a place to call home with a Single Door Folding Crate from our Pawhut brand. A crate will assist in-house training by providing a pet with their very own space to relax as well as a safe haven during times of stress. They’ll be less likely to want to go to the bathroom in the place they consider their home and this will help prevent accidents overall. Ours comes with a handy divider that will adjust the size of the crate as your puppy grows.
Don’t forget to fill your crate with cozy items like a soft toy and one of our heated or padded pet beds such as the Pawhut 16” Indoor Electric Round Dog Pet Bed or the 44” x 35” Orthopedic Padded Pet Bolster Bed. The extra comfort will provide your puppy with a sense of security that’s important to their well-being.
Keep Car Rides Safe
Speaking of bringing your pet home, what better way than to wrap them in a protective layer of care in one of our Deluxe Pet Car Booster Seats? By nestling your puppy in its own carrier, they’ll feel that much better about the ride to their new home and anywhere else they’ll have to go in the future including those dreaded but inevitable trips to the vet’s office.
For something a little more versatile, try the Pawhut Travel Carrier Backpack with Wheels. Not only is it comfy, it will get you and your puppy to any destination with ease. This one is for more than just your car seat as it will serve you well for going into shops or even on an airplane or public transit.
Be Ready to Puppy-proof your Home
You’ll have to take steps to puppy-proof your home just as you would for a small child. Not only for the safety of your possessions but also for their own protection as well. Puppies love to chew on anything they can get their teeth on so it’s up to you to give them a secure place to play. One way to keep a careful eye on your new bundle of joy is with one of our Pawhut Soft Sided Folding Playpens. It gives them a safe place to be a puppy and somewhere that’s different from the folding crate they’ll call home.
By checking off this checklist, you are setting yourself to be prepared to solve the many of the common issues that happen to fellow pet lovers each day. Also, you have to remember that even the best pet lover needs to remember that house training a new puppy can take time and patience. However, once you have established a bond and a daily routine with your puppy, pet ownership can be one of the most rewarding and fulfilling things that you can experience!
