3. Stick to a Routine
To help both you and your new dog adjust to life together, it can be really helpful to build a routine that works with your daily life. Start with taking your pup out to potty first thing in the morning, before bed, after mealtime, and after any playtime. Consider a feeding schedule – do you plan to feed your dog once, twice or three times a day? Most adult dogs do fine with one or two meals a day, but young puppies typically need to be fed more often.Staying at home now? Keep in mind how your schedule might change in your more ‘normal’ life. What time do you leave and get home from work?
