Welcoming a new pet into your home can be intimidating for both you and your new furry friend, but there are several ways that you can ensure their homecoming is as hassle-free and friendly as possible. Engaging in tasks such as pet-proofing your home and assigning designated chores to loved ones is a great place to start in ensuring that your pet is taken care of and that your home is pet-ready beforehand. Also make sure that you have all necessary supplies on hand before actually bringing your new four-legged friend home.
- To prepare for your furry new family member, remember to pet proof your home.
- You will want to stock up on pet supplies, food, toys and treats.
- Make a pet chore list and have a pet socializing scheme on hand to be activated.
“Pre-planning for a new pet can go a long way toward reducing stress not only on the animal, but also on the human members of the household.”
