These days of quarantine at home have made you rethink the possibility of adopting a dog. From The George Payne we encourage you to get hold of a furry life partner, going to any dog shelter (there are several in Barcelona). We have attached a list:
You have already contacted an animal protector and several puppies have been proposed for you to adopt. The decision was not easy and if you could you would adopt several, but the advice of the caregivers has guided you towards the perfect one for you. You have to take into account the character and size (especially if you want to travel with him).
Before the new family member knows your home, you have two important missions to fulfill: choose a name and arrange the house so that he feels good and you do not have to regret incidents with furniture, shoes or books.
We give you the instructions to accommodate the house to your needs and that our new partner feels happy in his new home:
STEP 1. Prepare your home for the new family member
You will have to adapt your house to the new tenant.
Take your height into account to remove the smallest or most fragile objects that you can pick up and put into your mouth. In the same way, collect the cables well so that you do not bite them.
Place a small space at the entrance of the house to leave the strap and bags. Better to have everything at hand when you go out and he is not impatient.
STEP 2. This will be your favorite place in the house
What will be your corner? Just as you create your space to rest, sleep or watch TV, it is important that you make a corner for your pet.
Put your bed or cushion along with the plate of food and water, all in the same place so that you learn that this is your place in your new home.
STEP 3. Protect the furniture and the floor
Always have a blanket or cover on hand to protect the sofa from bites and hairs that may come loose.
Put a floor protector around the drinker so that it does not get too dirty when eating, and always have lint remover rolls to clean clothes and the sofa from hairs.
STEP 4. Pamper him to feel one more
You are already home!
Buy toys for him to entertain himself and take note of this idea: fill a cushion with your old clothes so that your smell is always close by.
He is already a member of the family, so take care of him and love him as he will with you.
