Welcoming a puppy into your home is as exciting as it is challenging, and settling in can come with many surprises (like occasionally stepping in pee puddles) but with a pawfect routine and the right tools adjusting to pawrenthood is a breeze.
Check out our tips and tricks to create a tailored schedule with all the essentials your pup will need.
Setting up routines and developing habits can help to give a sense of comfort and reassurance for you and your puppy. While we can be as prepared as possible to anticipate the unexpected, a well thought out guide throughout the day helps us enjoy all the sweet little puppy moments.
I. The Most Important Meals of the Day
Start developing your routine around your pups feeding times. Refer to your vets recommendation for the right quantity and frequency of meals and snacks.
II. Nature’s Calling
Puppies aren’t the best at letting us know when they have to go so it’s great to have frequent potty breaks to avoid all the little accidents.
III. No Work, Just Play
Make playtime a priority to bond with your fur baby and get them a bit of exercise to get the zoomies out. It’s great to plan to have a bit of playtime before naps.
IV. Beauty Sleep
Puppies can sleep for up to 18 hours (absolutely jealous) so they need some quiet downtime. Scheduling naps and bedtime isn’t always easy and some pawrents prefer to let their pups sleep when they feel the need to.
