THINKING OF GETTING A PUPPY OR OLDER DOG TO ADD TO YOUR FAMILY?

I’ll help you sort through important questions like:

  • What breed/type of dog fits your family’s lifestyle?
  • What level of energy fits your family’s lifestyle?
  • What size and age might be the best fit?
  • How do you find a puppy/dog – breeder, shelter, rescue organization?
  • How do you assess responsible and ethical breeders, rescue organizations and shelters?

PUPPY PREPARATION:

Have you already decided and found your new family member?  Is it a puppy or older dog?  I can help you sort through the details of how to prepare BEFORE your puppy/dog arrives in your home.

  • Where will the dog sleep?
  • For safety, where will the dog be kept when you are away from home.
  • How do you introduce the dog to other four-legged family members and two-legged also!
  • What do you need to buy to be prepared?
  • What does your puppy need to be healthy – both physically and mentally?

WE’RE HAVING A BABY!

  • Are you expecting a baby?  Will this be your pups first experience with a new family addition?
  • What can you do to help your dog transition to a new family member?
  • How to introduce your dog to the baby.
  • What factors might be an issue and what to do about it.
  • Are there safety concerns?
  • What skills to teach your dog to help make a smooth transition.
