That first couple of weeks at home will be an adjustment for everyone, including your new furry friend. Apart from establishing the previously mentioned consistent schedule, help your dog adjust by making time to bond with your dog. Preferably, pick them up at a time when you can spend three to five days with them to help get them acclimated. Also, make sure to spend a significant amount of time petting and speaking to them in a soothing voice in those first days in order to build trust.
Also, remember that dogs enjoy alone time just like you, so setting aside time for that as well is important. And then, once they’re ready, slowly introduce them to new people and friends outside of the household.
