Items you will need before bringing a new Shih Tzu home

It’s your job to make sure that she feels safe and secure in her new dwellings. Being well prepared for her arrival will go a long way in making sure that introducing the new family is a success.

For instance, before you bring the new puppy home, make sure that your house and yard are prepared.

Taking care of these things before she arrives is the best way to go. Because when she arrives, everyone would be too caught up in all of the excitement of having a new addition to the family.

The first thing you should do is make sure that the house and the yard are puppy proof.

Always be prepared before bringing a new Shih Tzu home

Although you may not let the puppy out in the yard unsupervised just yet, it’s still a good idea to check for holes in the yard and under the fence, which will allow you time to get them taken care of before your dog is ready to go outside on her own.

In addition, remove all objects that could pose a threat to the new arrival.

Therefore, if you have everything ready in advance and all the things your Shih Tzu will need, the transition will go smoothly for both you and the puppy.
