Preparing for a new puppy
I love visits like this. This is Bentley a four year old Chihuahua and he has been an only dog for his whole life!
The owner was referred to me by several people she knew and she bought my book on getting a new puppy from my online shop https://www.haversdogbehaviour.co.uk/knowledge-centre-1 so she was very well prepared for the new arrival who is a Labrador. Yes I know, just a bit different to Bentley.
I suggested we did a pre puppy home visit to prepare Bentley and to begin to teach him to share attention and try to pre empt any issues that might arise when the new puppy arrives.
We had a very productive hour and Bentley relaxed and chilled out, exactly what his owners want him to do when puppy arrives.
I have booked a follow up session for Monday so we can see how everyone is coping and settling in. I love planning and preperation, well done!
