What to Prepare for Before Bringing Home your Labrador Puppy

It could be very exciting for the whole family when bringing home a Labrador puppy. However, before you do, there are a few things that you will need to prepare to make the puppy comfortable in its new home. First of all, you should make sure that your kids understand that the puppy will need some time to adjust to its new home environment. Puppies are just like babies, they need lots of care and attention and adjustment time.

Finding a place for your Puppy

You should find a place in the house where the puppy could stay before you bring the Labrador puppy home. Make sure that you allocate a certain area of the house for the puppy as he/she would need a space of its own to sleep, eat and play.

Once you allocate a space for the Labrador puppy, you should prepare a bed for your dog. Because puppies love to chew on things do not use those wicker baskets. It will not take long for them to reduce the wicker basket into twigs. Besides, there is always some danger that your puppy will swallow some pieces of twigs and choke. Please avoid using a wicker bed.

Those boxes made of hard wood would be a better bed for your puppy. Very young dogs are not really strong enough to shred boxes make up of hard wood so you can breath easy. You may use some cotton or woolen blankets for them to lie down on. Cotton or woolen blankets are easy to clean or replace.

Aside from a place to sleep, you will need to designate a place where you will groom your puppy. You will need to get a table where you can put your puppy for grooming

 

Buying things for your Labrador puppy

Your Labrador puppy will need a few more things. You will need to buy your puppy some supplies such as a basin, shampoo, mineral oil or eye ointment, washcloth and towels to give your puppy a bath. Make sure that you get a mild no tear formula shampoo so that your Labrador puppy will not get irritated when you put shampoo on its coat.

Try Potty Park Risk Free!

Hey Everyone!  I’ve got some great news for you and your pets!

 

Over and over I am asked the very same question from my new puppy buyers – what is the best way to house train my new puppy?  This has always been a tricky answer because until recently there was no best way or worst way – just the long way.  Well thankfully that has all changed!

 

I was recently introduced to a product called Potty Park.  It literally is a toilet for dogs that can be used indoors or outdoors at your home, apartment or anywhere else your dog may need somewhere to relieve itself.  Essentially it’s your own private little piece of the dog park anywhere you need it.

 

I have seen other dog potties for sale and have been very skeptical because of the inherent dangers of all of the bacteria building up on these units, but Potty Park is made from anti-bacterial and anti-microbial medical grade materials.  In fact it’s the only true anti-microbial dog potty in the world! 

 

Once I found out that the White House uses Potty Park for Bo Obama I was sold!  I mean, if there was a better dog potty out there don’t you think they’d be using it?

 

Not only does it save your floors from accidents and stains, but it also allows you to spend more quality time with your dog(s) and less time cleaning up after them.
