It's Time for a New Puppy

Bringing a New Puppy Home

If you are bringing a new puppy home, it can be exciting and fun. However, it also comes with a lot of responsibility and is a big decision. There are many breeds from which you can choose. You can get an Australian Shepherd, Aussie, Labradoodle, Aussiedoodle, and many others. If you get a new puppy, you will need a veterinarian. If you end up needing a getaway, you will need someone to take care of your new puppy. At Doggie Dude Ranch in Ames, IA, we provide veterinary care, boarding, and more.

Taking Care of a New Puppy

Whether you have an Aussie, Australian Shepherd, Aussiedoodle, or Labradoodle, there are many things that you need to keep in mind before you get a new puppy. You should remember that it is no small commitment. You need to get certain essential supplies, including food, treats, bowls, a crate, cleaning products, a dog bed, puppy toys, grooming tools, shampoo, a leash, collar, harness, identification tag, and any necessary medications.

Give your puppy some time to adjust when you first bring it home. Make sure you visit our veterinarian as soon as possible. We will make sure that your puppy is healthy and determine what vaccines it needs. It is also vital to potty train your puppy and begin behavior training at a young age. Make sure to socialize your puppy as soon as it is old enough. You should also make sure that you are consistent when it comes to your puppy’s daily routines. Additionally, if you need to leave your puppy alone for a few days, make sure your puppy is trained and has the proper vaccines. Our team will provide personalized care and attention for your puppy while you are away.
