Planning for a new furry addition to your family?

In this episode, I dive into the essentials of preparing for your furry bundle of joy. Just like baby-proofing, puppy-proofing your home is crucial to keep your little one safe. I’ll walk you through securing potential hazards and making sure you have all the necessary supplies, from bowls and crates to the perfect toys. I’ll also help you pick the best spots for your puppy to rest and play.

Plus, I understand that bringing home a new puppy can be overwhelming, so I offer advice on how to mentally prepare for the adjustment period and cope with the ‘puppy blues.’ My goal is to ensure you’re ready to create a nurturing environment for your new best friend.

If you’re planning to bring a puppy home soon, join me as I discuss:

  • The importance of puppy-proofing your home
  • Essential supplies for a new puppy
  • Choosing the right locations for the puppy’s rest and play areas
  • Mental preparation for new puppy owners
  • Practical advice and coping strategies for the ‘puppy blues’

Preparing for a new puppy is about more than just gathering supplies; it’s about creating a safe and loving environment and preparing yourself mentally for the journey ahead. With the right preparation, you and your puppy can start off on the right paw!
