Tips for naming a puppy

  • Choose a short, two-syllable name - It’s easier to get their attention that way and then makes the chances for nicknames even greater.
  • Avoid names that are common words or phrases.
  • Names that end in vowels - For pups, vowels change the vocal tone so it may be harder for them to understand.
  • It’s okay to change the name of a shelter dog unless you find it completely fitting.

Tips for bringing your new puppy home

  • Prep - That means to make a space for your puppy inside and outside the house. Have a dog bed, crate, food and water bowls, toys, and so forth.
  • Give your puppy a strong introduction to its new home. Most likely the new puppy is scared or has anxiety about the new atmosphere. Ease that anxiety.
  • Take them to the vet.
  • Feed your puppy the same brand and type of food for a few days and then slowly transition the food.
  • If no one has told you, be prepared that your puppy may spend a few nights crying. Either it’s for a potty break or anxiety.
  • Be consistent and make you have plenty of patience. They will need it all.
