==> Getting a new adult dog? How wonderful!

These NEW DOG tips will help!

New Dog Checklist

After our last week's New Puppy Checklist and tons of feedback and appreciation (that was irony 😕 ), of course a New Dog Checklist has to follow.

While last week the focus was on getting a new puppy, this week the focus is on getting a new dog that is an adult dog.

Naturally, many new dog preparations are age-unspecific. I wouldn't waste my time merely repeating those. Thus, in this week's New Dog Checklist I rather add to the ones featured last week and now focus on different key points!

For you and the search engines, here are some bullet points of what the New Dog Checklist covers:

  • Before getting a new dog - what to consider
  • What to do before bringing home a new dog
  • Introducing a new dog into your home
  • How to introduce a new dog to your family
  • Introducing new dog to current dog
  • Introducing new dog to cat
  • How to rehome a dog successfully
  • What you need for a new dog
  • New dog games for new dog owner
  • New dog won't eat
  • New dog food

Again, you may download this comprehensive and elegant NEW DOG CHECKLIST from here:

New Dog Checklist

Simply click the image to download the New Dog Checklist.


Edit: Okay, I came back to this now. Please note that I prepared both Checklists some years ago and haven't looked at them anymore, because both of them exist meanwhile as books/booklets, and the books have received several updates already. However, the books are of course longer than three pages, ie you cannot stick them on your fridge. sad

So, if you seek "as short as possible" then just download the above New Dog Checklist only. Conversely, if you seek to get my most up-to-date New Dog Checklist incl. more explanations, then you may prefer the book form: New Dog Checklist. It's completely FREE as well, sorry! grin

Note that this link again leads to Smashwords, because Amazon do not allow perma-free books (permanently free), but I have made the New Dog Checklist perma-free, and Smashwords allow that. The added benefit is: You can download it from Smashwords in any format you like, incl. for Apple iPad. - But who can afford an iPad, right? If they can't even afford to become a member here for the benefit of their GSD. neutral
