Default How to settle a dog into its new home?

Hi I was just woundering how will I settle bailey into his new home? ( If you dont no about bailey please go to the link in my sig)

The lady sending him over on the plane not this friday but next friday!

She is trying to get him to get him here in tasmania at about 2:30..She told me as soon as he comes to let him rest and only now and then give him a pat for the first day because he would of had a huge day!

And advice? Oh also hes coming with a towl hes had since birth its got all his fave smells on it like his mum So I hope that settles him down? Any other advice? Im really worried about him not settling in

I think you've been preparing for long enough that you've probably already got most of it figured out but are just anxious and overly worried. Make sure to have a quiet area for your pup's crate & start training that right away. The pup's towel & some chewy toys along with the radio or TV will help too. Make it cozy & fun for him.

I suggest you read up on the Frequently Asked Questions threads & some of the threads in the Puppies sections of the forum just to refresh your memory.

Try not to worry too much or be too nervous, you'll figure things out. You can always run to the computer to ask a question if you're having trouble.

i agree with Katz, you have been getting ready for this arival for so long that you are more prepared than alot of people who just get a dog on a whim. also you have been a member on here and obviously have read threads and participated, which must have improved your dogs knowledge...and if you get stuck, you can pretty much always find an answer on here! good luck, keep us updated and remember...having a puppy is a steep learning curve and you will not, and should not be expected to, get EVERYTHING right first time....im sure even experienced dog owners on here still make the odd mistake!

Don't worry, he will be fine, just make sure he is comfortable and has some toys and his nice bed ready and just stay with him, he will need some comforting because he will miss his mum and sister & brothers so he will needs lots of attention calming him down.

You are going to do so great with him, he will love you.

Haha yeah you will be fantastic, just ask all the questions you need to know here on the dog forum and they will be answered quickly and you can follow our advice.

We are all so excited for you and can't wait to see pics of him. Good Luck~

Can't wait to meet him!
