Preparing for your puppy to come home
Preparing for your puppy ahead of time will help the transition go smoothly. We suggest that you read the all of the following topics to help you prepare for your puppy and get off to a great start.
It is important to go ahead and choose a veterinarian now. Talk to friends, family, coworkers or people that you trust and have dogs for references. You will need a veterinarian to perform a vet check once you get your puppy (this is a requirement in my contract), complete puppy shots, spay or neuter your puppy and give annual vaccinations. Hopefully your puppy will not require any additional procedures or have any emergencies but you will need to establish a relationship with your vet just in case. Your vet will also be able to recommend protocols for worming and tick-flea management in your area.
