My experience: When I adopted puppy for the first time.

Adopting a puppy can be very difficult when you do it for the first time. Parenting a new puppy or kitten can be a big challenge. It's not just about providing a good home, you also have to be prepared to invest considerable time and effort. And to do this you have to be mentally and physically prepared.

To be honest, I'm not an expert or someone who's trying to tell you what to do. I just want to share my experiences of the countless puppies I have adopted since I was five or six years old.

My family and I are dog people. We had so many dogs in the past that sometimes we even forgot their names. But I clearly remember the very first dog I was wholly responsible for. I don't know how I managed, but I suspect that my parents were feeding her!

When we went to our neighbors’ to choose that puppy from a litter, I can remember how excited I was and that I couldn't wait to take one home. When all the puppies were with their mother they were very sweet and slept most of the time. So I thought it was going to be very easy. But it wasn't easy at all!!

When we brought the puppy home my father built a little enclosure for her with an open top so we could pick her up easily. I was very happy and played with her all day. Then it was night time. I tucked my beautiful new puppy into her little bed and blanket and said good night. When I left her, she started to cry. She was very upset because she missed her mummy and her brothers and sisters. I went back to her and tried to soothe her to sleep but it didn't work. I had to go back and forth all night long. In the end I had to sneak her up into bed with me. This gave her the very bad habit of only sleeping when she was in my bed. If only we'd had a better solution. As it was we ended up with a very spoiled dog.

 

 

If I wanted to adopt that puppy today I know that I wouldn’t have that problem. Dreamy Dog Beds are the solution. The high quality faux fur reminds puppies of their mother’s fur. And the calming bed’s soft foam makes for a relaxing, muscle-soothing sleep. This provides reassurance and helps to prevent stress. And this relaxing comfort is a great benefit at times of anxiety or in frightening situations.

A comfortable dog is a happy dog, and stress-free, relaxing sleep is essential for your pet’s mental and physical health. I know that this time I wouldn't have to share my bed with my puppy and would end up with a happy and very well-behaved dog.

And a happy dog means a happy owner.
