How to create the perfect harmony

If you are like me, than one dog is never enough. So I’ve made it as a rule, to allow the first dog to choose their mate. This does take some to find the right dog, but once it chooses its friend, there will be harmony.

Imagine for a moment, your parent bring home a complete stranger, off the street, and tell you, that this is your new sibling and you must love it like your own. Would you?

That’s how dogs feel about any other dogs that you bring home. So just to skip, all of the unnecessary hassle, I allow my pooch to choose their sibling/mate.

The main thing is to allow your dogs to establish their own hierarchy, in which the pack order is clear. This will ensure that conflicts will be rare.

How to make your new dog feel welcomed

My fur-family is about to get bigger. I can’t wait to welcome another pooch into my circle.  And while we are on a topic of a new poochy; here is the list of basic things to get, so your pooch feels extra special.

  • Water dish
  • Food bowl
  • Dog food/treats
  • Food mat (think of this as a bib for your floor. Puppies can be messy eaters)
  • Sleeping bed (I have one in each room of the house)
  • Collar with dogs name and your phone number
  • Leash
  • Brush/comb
  • Toys, toys, and more toys (better it chews on a rubber toy, than your shoes and cables)
  • Toothbrush/toothpaste – I’m not kidding
  • Tick Tweezers
  • Old towels
