We Have Weimaraner Puppies for Sale
Bringing your Weimaraner puppy home
When it comes to welcoming your new puppy into your home, it is important to take some steps to ensure your new family member adjusts well. You also want to make sure you and your family is blending well with your new furry friend also. When you find a new Weimaraner puppy for sale at White River Kennels make sure you are bringing them home with a few things in mind.
Food and potty issues
A lot of abnormal behavior the first few days is actually normal behavior when bringing a new puppy home. One of the biggest things you may notice is digestive issues. If they aren’t eating, are eating a lot or having bathroom issues, it’s okay. They are entering a new environment with a new family, new home, new smells and even another new animal they don’t know.
Let your new puppy adjust for about a week. If a few things you have noticed don’t get better after that, it is a good indication that you may want to see a vet. When you bring your new puppy home from White River, we will send you home with their existing food. You want to keep the food the same or gradually transition into something else but you don’t want to do it all at once. This makes a huge difference to their digestive system. We recommend trying to continue with the same food we use but if you decide to switch, talk to your vet first. Not all puppy food is the same.
Having a new puppy can be a new novelty for you but can be very stressful to your new addition. You want to show them off and take them everywhere. You want to invite people over to see them. However, you need at least seven days of calm and quiet while your puppy transitions to their new home. It’s just like a person if you are over stimulated you can become overwhelmed and it is just a setup for failure. Let them acclimate. Being overly affectionate in the beginning can confuse your puppy as well. Too much adoration can create separation anxiety when you do have to leave the house and leave them alone for periods of time.
The run of the house
When you bring your new pup home, giving them free reign of the house can create destructive behavior down the road. Assemble a dog bed where they can see you and the action going on in the house. They will be able to learn their new surroundings but still be far enough away that they feel safe. Using a leash on your new pup while inside the house will help you to keep track of them. This way, when they are distracted by something else, they won’t run off and destroy your house. Of course, when you are gone take the leash off and either create them or confine them to one part of the house that they cannot get into trouble.
Bringing your new puppy home is a wonderful time for both of you. Just make sure you are doing what you need to do in order to raise a well-rounded dog. When you are looking for Weimaraner puppy for sale, let White River Kennels help you find just the right one.
