How to help your new dog adjust to its new home.

Who can use some puppy training tips? I sure can. It's been 5 weeks since our little Rowan (below) joined our family. Training can be uncharted territory and sleepless nights may have you seeing double. So when celebrity certified dog trainer Nicole Ellis shared some of her tips I was all over it!

There are few things in life more exciting than bringing a new dog into your home. No matter where your dog comes from – breeder, shelter, rescue, stray, friend-of-a-friend – you’re always going to be over the moon about adding a new family member who’s going to join in your life and adventures.


A lifetime of experiences and memories awaits but first, let’s discuss a few very important things…


Your new friend will need time to adjust. A new home is like a foreign country – new sights, new sounds, new smells, a new routine with new people (and often other fur or feather friends). Understanding how your dog processes and adjusts to all these novel stimuli will help ease the transition for everyone.
