TIP FROM THE BOOK- MAKE TIME TO SETTLE IN
Whenever you introduce a new dog into your home, allow for a several-week adjustment period when you can expect some challenges. This applies even if you are adopting a housetrained dog, but is especially true if you are getting a puppy. Although he will quickly adapt to his new family, a puppy will initially miss his mom and littermates.
It’s important to be at home as much as you can for the first few weeks to keep a constant watch on your new family member, to start the housetraining process, and begin to forge a friendship that will last a lifetime.
