A NEW PUPPY
Are You Ready To Bring Puppy Home?
Do make sure that the time in your life is right when you are bringing home that new puppy. Getting a puppy is a big commitment (10-15years) and very much like bringing home a new baby (potty time at 2am). Do make sure that you not only have the crate, food and toys but the time to spend transitioning and training your new baby. This might mean taking time off of work to establish a routine with your new puppy. If you have other pets, they may need sometime to be introduced to the new puppy before they can play together. Also think about when you are going on vacation (is it the same time the puppy is coming home), moving to a new house or bringing home a new baby all should factor into your decision on when you bring home a puppy. We can work with you to make sure the timing is right for a successful transition for both you and your new puppy.
TRANSITIONING YOUR PUPPY
When you do bring home your new puppy we know there will be so much excitement for you and the family. The puppy maybe nervous or scared when leaving our family to join yours. Don't worry, it may take sometime for them to get adjusted to their new family and your routine with them. Remember they have been with mom, dad and lots of brothers/sisters for them to sleep/play with. Be patient with them for the first few days as they adjust to you.
German Shepherds are such intelligent breeds and they excel at obedience, that training them can be easy. Just know that it is a big adjustment for your new puppy but once they know and trust you are going to love, feed and care for them you will have an amazing
loyal companion for life! :)
