    Default Bringing Home Pup

    Hey Guys,

    We bring home our second pup next friday. Im having a dillemma as the next day we will be gone for most of the day... Now im unsure of what to do... do we leave him outside with our other boy... do we leave him inside... do we bring him with us for the trip?? What would you do in that situation ? If he had been with us for a while id just leave him at home outside but being only 1 day im confused as what will be the best thing for him?
    Thanks so much.

    If It is possible to put off getting him for a day that you will be home all day or get him on the way back from where ever you are going I would suggest doing so.

    I wouldnt leave him alone with your other dog so early on unsupervised.

    I met a lady over the weekend who put two of her four dogs down because they mauled to death their new pup only days after getting it. I am not sure of the whole story, thats basically all she said. in 24 hours she went from 4 dogs to one.

    We could probably get him the day we get back but he is a few hrs drive from us and were already going on a 10hr round trip the same day thats why we planned on getting him on the friday.

    We are also considering taking both with us for the trip as we are going down south and would be nice to take them with us.

    If you can take him with you. If you can't leave him in a puppy proof area in the house, make sure he has warm cozy places and be aware that he will not be happy about being all on his own.

    Failing that, when you bring him home, see how he goes with your new dog and leave him in a puppy pen and your adult dog in the house. They have company that way BUT they can't access one another.

    Or pick puppy up the day after your trip.

    I agree with BL, don't leave them alone together at least until you are satisfied that your current dog has accepted him into the house. I didn't leave mine alone together for a month, and after that time Harley loved Bella and was quite happy to have her around.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    The only thing I'd be worried about with taking both with you is it's a stressful, confined area. Puppies can and will get carsick too....

    We have a fourwheel drive that we can take the back seats out so they would have alot of room... yeah thats what im worried about is car sickness but current pup never got car sick from 6 weeks old and he was always in the car.... guess it would be trial and error and alot of rest breaks to stretch their legs.

    Hey D & B, congrats on your soon to be new addition!! Personally I reckon you should take your little bub pup with you on your day trip. He needs to get to know his new mum and dad...In the end its up to you, but I don't know if I could leave him behind lol...
