Bringing Baby Home
When You Receive Your Puppy
Upon getting a new puppy people tend to want to take their puppy straight to a pet supply store. We DO NOT recommend this. Matter of fact we do not recommend the puppy being where other (unknown) dogs have been at all for the first few weeks that you have the puppy. Your puppy will be current on shots when you receive it but shots are preventatives not guarantees. We like to use this example--your child gets a flu shot. You still try to avoid locations known for the flu. Taking your puppy to a pet supply store with all of the other dogs would like taking your child to Walmart and tell him to lick the handle of the shopping cart to see if his flu shot really works. Dogs carry diseases and people carry dog diseases on their hands, clothing and shoes. You do not know what type of environment that their puppy came from or if it has had shots but people tend to go straight to the same pet supply store and share all of the germs and diseases. For the safety of your puppy we DO NOT recommend this. Also, refrain from going to dog parks with your new puppy this is the same type of situation.
