A Warm Welcome for Your New Dog
Bring a Favorite Item to your Home
Gather supplies to make your new family member feel safe and comfy. Have a toy they love or a blanket they have slept with - this helps them feel at home in their new surroundings. If there aren’t any favorites to be had, introduce them! Additionally, a crate is a great option for a rescue pup. It gives them a safe space they can go to whenever they need, plus it gives you the peace of mind to leave home and know that your dog won’t get into mischief. Crate training takes time and patience, but can go a long way to comfort your pet during the adjustment period.
