Before you Come
Check List for before you come to pick up your new puppy/dog
Is the house ready? Have you puppy proofed the house, is there a designated area that is safe for puppy when not being supervised? This is your crate and/or playpen.
Have you set up training classes? Or private trainer? This should be set up before the puppy comes home. The first week puppy comes home sets the rules for what is expected. Waiting to take classes or work on training usually results in failure. Training is not stable so it is necessary to have on going training sessions for a successful puppy. Just like kids go to kindergarten then middle school, high school, college… puppy training also has a progression and should be on going. There is a DVD by Brenda Aloff we recommend everyone watch before the puppy comes home its on the Training Books page
Is the Vet appointment scheduled ?
Do you have someone to let puppy out during the day? Or day care that will take young puppy?
