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.

Separation

Sometimes a new environment could result in loss of appetite in your new addition. We suggest purchasing a can of chicken from the grocery store to have on hand. (This would be the type that you would consume.) The chicken will only be used in case the puppy does not want to eat dry food. Mix 1 tablespoon of the chicken with the dry food until the dog retrieves his/her appetite. Gradually decrease the amount daily until the puppy is back to normal, dry dog food. DO NOT ADD CHICKEN IF THE PUPPY IS EATING DRY KIBBLE with no reservations. We like to say that this is like adding sugar to a kiddo’s cereal. If they ever try it that way they will like it and will want it every time.

FOOD

Your puppy is used to having Purina Puppy Chow Complete out in a self-feeding feeder 24/7. In the early, growing stages of a puppy’s life we do not feel that they can eat too much. Your home will be a different situation, though.

 

Our babies have access to a “doggy door” to go out and potty when they need to do so. Your home probably will not have that. Therefore, you will need to set up a routine based on the advice of your vet. He/she will advise you to the amount to feed and usually ask that you feed your puppy one time in the morning and one time in the evening. All of our babies will come with a sample of Purina Puppy Chow. (Note: They change the images on the bag often so it may not look identical to the bag shown in the image.)

 

After receiving your flight detail from us you will want to go ahead and book the vet appointment for your new addition. As of Jan.1, 2017 Pocket Beagles USA will no longer accept Banfield/PetSmart Vet Check-ups as validation of our health agreement. If your vet finds a life-altering, congenital defect in your puppy at the time of the 48-hour health validation check-up contact Pocket Beagles USA immediately. Pocket Beagles USA will neither be responsible for any vet expenses incurred by the puppy nor pay for the cost of any medications unless prior agreement is made. Pocket Beagles USA will not Refund Money.

Bedding

Your baby is used to sleeping on a crate liner for its bed. These beds are very easy to find, are durable, and are machine washable. They can be found at any of your pet supply stores, Wal-Mart, Target and etc. Price varies per location but quality usually does not. We have found most all are made of about the same quality if purchased at a major pet supply store, Wal-Mart or Target. (Dollar General/Dollar Stores do not tend to last as long.)

FLYING/PICKING UP

If your puppy is flying to you it will be flown in a 100 series similar to the one shown. The cost of the carrier is included in the shipping price of the puppy.

If you are picking up your puppy then you will need to bring your own carrier for transport. The cost of the carrier is not included in the purchase price of the puppy.  

Your puppy will come with:

*Shot Record

*Deworming Schedule

*Internal Parasite Preventative Schedule

*Sample of Purina Puppy Chow

*Certificate of Health

*Fecal Exam Documentation
