The time that the puppy leaves its birthplace from it's breeder's home to go to a new home is both a physical and emotional stress to this young dogs system. He will have changes in his physical layout, as well as his emotional needs. Remember that he has had his first set of shots only a few days ago, and that his immunity is not at its best level. If possible, avoid too much contact with other dogs, etc., until he has had time to adjust to his new home and build up a safe level of immunity to everything he will encounter. I know you would just love to show off the new little tyke, but remember, just you and your home being new and strange to him are about all he can handle at one time. Most puppies need a full week to adjust to new surroundings, new people, new water, different feeding schedules, possible new animals, as well as new sounds, smells, carpets, the great outdoors, car rides, and a host of other things that are very strange. Also, for the first time, he has to meet all these challenges without the back up support of his litter mates, his mother, his aunt, or whatever else he has learned to depend on.The smaller number of new things that are introduced to him during the first week, the quicker he will learn to cope with each new one. Be prepared for him to be not so bold as he was at his home place. Be prepared for some possible mild tummy upset (diarrhea) as a result of the stress of new surroundings and water, and most of all be prepared for a couple of noisy nights as he voices disapproval of being on his own.
Many blessings with your pup, and if any questions or problems arise, do
not hesitate to contact us, and we will help wherever we can.
