There are medical reasons too. If you get your dog used to sleeping in one spot it’s less likely to sleep on the floor or other hard surfaces which can cause arthritis and calluses in later years. Starting out correctly can help keep your dog fit and healthy. They even make orthopedic dog beds now to help address this issue.
While in the car be sure your pet is always secured. We keep our dogs on a lead and have found this very helpful. Especially when someone is exiting or entering the car you don’t want the pet to dash out into traffic or up a tree and be harmed.
Have you ever considered you dog’s specific needs for comfortable rest? Senior dogs over the age of 10 are similar to a seventy-year-old person. Can you imagine Grandpa curled up on the floor for the evening? How about Grandma climbing into a waterbed with a two-foot frame? Or better yet, imagine her trying to get out!
The doubts went on. Was today the right day for this final decision? Or did I have something to gain by gambling you could make it to Tuesday? And if so, then how about squeezing out Wednesday? What if I could actually help you to next weekend?
Always include one or more incentives with your offer. For example, if you offer a comfy Hundeseng på ben for a new puppy, you might include a white paper on puppy training.
If you normally take vacations, think about what you will do with your new canine family member. Do you have family that will take care of your dog? Ask them ahead of time. If not, will you have money available for placing your dog in a kennel?
Keep him by your side: Place his kennel or bed by your bed side (At least within the first few days). Depending on how independent/dependent your dog is this could work to keep him feeling calm and protected in his new environment.
Basic bed or fancy–whether he’s stretched out on a doggie chaise lounge, curled up in a canopied bed, or lounging on a regular rectangular bed–as long as it’s comfortable, your dog will feel happy and secure in his safe haven.
