Welcoming a New Furry Family Member? Here's Your Must-Have Checklist!

Welcome to the doggy parent club! 🐾 Whether you've got a bouncy bundle of joy pup or a recently adopted fur baby, you're in for a wild ride of cuteness, tail wags, and unforgettable moments. At Otero, we're excited to be part of your adventure and help you kick-start this incredible journey with your new best friend. Let's amp up the excitement and dive deep into what every new pup owner needs to make those early days memorable, educational, and pawsitively amazing!

Feeding Frenzy Fun

Start your day with a smile and a full tummy – your pup's tummy, that is! Establishing a consistent feeding routine is like setting the stage for a well-behaved pup. You can set reminders on your phone to ensure your pup gets their meals like clockwork. For those days when you're caught up in life's whirlwind, consider investing in an automatic feeder. It's like a personal chef for your furry friend, and you can manage meals right from your smartphone. Talk about convenient!

Stay Hydrated and Healthy

Hydration is the name of the game for a happy, healthy pup. Make sure their water bowl is always topped up. If you're feeling adventurous, opt for an automatic water dispenser. It may take a little practice for your pup to get the hang of it, but they'll become a hydration champ in no time.

Playtime: Where the Magic Happens

Exercise isn't just about burning off energy; it's also about bonding and building a strong connection with your pup. Invest in a comfortable harness for those epic walks. A well-behaved pup on a leash is every owner's dream! Don't forget to stock up on fetching balls for endless indoor and outdoor fun. Engaging in active playtime helps your pup develop physically and mentally. It's like hitting the gym, but way more fun!

Toys Galore: Keep the Fun Rolling

You don't need a yard to have a blast. Indoors, you've got a world of playtime possibilities. Delve into the magical realm of treat-filled chew toys and brain-teasing puzzles. These toys keep your pup mentally stimulated and entertained, which is a huge plus when it comes to training and behavior.

Good Behavior: The Key to Harmony

Every pup has their unique way of expressing themselves, and sometimes that involves some enthusiastic vocalizations. It's all part of the fun! But for those moments when you need a little peace and quiet, our GoodDog! Obedience Training Spray comes to the rescue. And here's the cherry on top: we've got a travel-sized version for your adventures on the go. Teaching your pup when to use their "inside voice" is a game-changer!

Learning Together: It's a Bonding Thing

The training journey begins now, and it's a journey filled with fun and connection. Teaching your new buddy manners, tricks, and life skills is easier than you think. Equip yourself with a trusty clicker and embrace the power of positive reinforcement. Our GoodDog spray is your secret weapon for handling those pesky unwanted behaviors that might pop up from time to time. Training sessions are not only about learning but also about strengthening your bond and building trust.

Indoor Potty Success

Potty training is part of the deal when you've got a pup. Whether you're housetraining or just need an indoor spot for emergencies, consider puppy pads or our reliable spray for designated areas. These products are designed for easy cleanup and odor control, saving you time and keeping your home smelling fresh.

Cuddles and Comfort: The Best Part

After all the action and adventure, your pup needs a cozy spot to unwind. Let them snuggle up in your favorite spots – because sharing is caring! Offering access to comfy areas in your home strengthens your bond and creates a sense of security for your pup.

Home Sweet Home: Create a Safe Space

While it's tempting to give your pup the run of the house, remember that it's essential to establish boundaries until they've been properly trained and potty trained. A confined and safe space during the early days will help your pup understand the rules and build good habits.

Here at Otero, we're all about making your puppy's journey as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.
