Introducing a New Puppy

Introducing your New Labradoodle Puppy

Your new Labradoodle Puppy will probably feel apprehensive as the Puppy will miss his mother and litter mates where the Labradoodles Adoption took place. To make this transition stress-free, allow the Puppy to explore his new surroundings. Children should be careful that the new Labradoodle Puppies in Ontario need lots of love and rest; therefore, the Labradoodle Puppies should not be over-handled as they are so small and need rest. Introduce older pets slowly to the new Puppy with close supervision, especially with young children present.

We are identifying what a Puppy will need. 

Puppies will need care, love, and patience. When bringing the new puppy home, time is required to identify its needs which should be considered and decide what the Puppy’s needs will be vital. Caring for a puppy is a great way to help teach children how to be responsible and compassionate toward the Puppy. Getting the whole family involved in caring for your new Puppy is essential, so everyone has a role in helping Puppy’s care. When planning for your Puppy’s care, make sure to consider the following:

  • Walks. Who will walk the Puppy, and when?
  • Playtime. Who will be playing with the Puppy, and how often?
  • Feeding. Who will feed the Puppy? What will they provide? How much food? How often to feed them?
  • When training the Puppy Schedule, who will clean you after the Puppy and clean up when the Puppy eliminates? Also, who will take the Puppy outside and when? 
  •  So, you have decided to Groom the Puppy. Who will bathe the Puppy to ensure his fur is brushed and clean, and how often will it be? Who will brush the Puppy’s hair? Clipping its nails?
  • Vet Care. Who will be the Pup’s veterinarian? How soon will a veterinarian see the Puppy?

Getting Supplies

Before bringing your new Puppy home, you should ensure the Puppy’s needs and make sure all of the following items below are on hand before bringing your puppy home:

Selecting commands to use when training your Puppy

Please make a sure family in your household agree on training commands and the behaviours that should accompany them. Use the word “sit” when Puppy sits down.

  1. Sit Command. Sitting Command means the dog’s hips are on the ground while the shoulders are upright. The dog should remain in position until asked to get up.
  2. Come. The Command in dog training means stop what you’re doing, ignore distractions, and go directly to the owner.
  3. Down Command. In dog training, the down Command means to have the dog lie down on the floor and stay in that position until you ask the dog to get up.
  4. Stay. A dog should Remain in the Stay position while the trainer walks away, and the dog does not move until asked.
  5. Release. The word Release asks the Puppy to move up from its place.  
  6. Yes. A verbal YES lets the dog know his actions are correct.
  7. Good Dog/Good Boy/Good Girl. Praising your dog means the commands that ask them to move from his position.
  8. Leave it. Telling the Labradoodle Puppy to “leave it” means not touching the food on the floor or other sounds like a dog barking outside. 
  9. Outdoors. The word “outside” is to ask your dog to eliminate outdoors.
  10. Go to bed: He requests the Puppy to go to his crate or bed.
  11. Dinner. This word, or the phrase, “Are you hungry?” signals that it’s time to eat.
  12. Go for a walk. It’s time to go for a walk.
  13. Get it. Please get your ball, toy, or newspaper.
  14. Bring it here. Bring me your ball, toy, or newspaper.
  15. Drop it. Spit out what’s in your mouth.

Establish rules for children

To ensure your Labradoodles Puppy and your children get along, you should establish rules for your children to follow. Children need to understand that the Puppy may be afraid and confused by its surroundings, so the children need to be gentle with the Puppy to help him feel relaxed. You can model this behaviour with your kids when they are holding the Puppy and talking calmly.

Prepare the Puppy’s environment

Ensure that the Puppy’s bed, food, water bowls, and toys are all available when the Puppy arrives. Make the Puppy not get into hazardous items, such as it might reach, chew or destroy, such as a favourite pair of shoes, your daughter’s doll, or exposed wires.
