2. Prepare Your Home
Having everything your new pet needs before you bring them home is a great way to reduce the stress which is inherent in the adoption process (for both parties). Having a bed, toys, bowls, leads, a collar and food ready consequently helps settle the dog and put them at ease. One of the tricks with adopting an adult dog is also to find out what they have been eating at their old home, as suddenly changing a dog’s diet can result in diarrhea, vomiting, stomach aches and general misbehavior.
