How to Introduce a New Puppy to Your Family

How to Introduce a New Puppy to Your Family


We have just got a new Dapple Dachshund, he is a year old so not a puppy but it is so sweet watching him find his way and feel more at home. The not lunging goes for both kids and tall husbands! This little one is still a bit nervous around my very playful husband so he is having to move more slowly and carefully to not scare him.


Great tips, it is important that the puppy gets to know everyone’s scent and that you get down to his level as well.


This is so timely! I’ve had a dog all my life but I don’t really remember them as puppies (and maybe because my dad was in charge!). Now we’re thinking of getting one of our own so these are great tips to keep in mind.


I love these tips!! It is so much fun to bring home new pets to the family, it’s a great experience for kids.


Ohh… this is so cute and I also think that’s nice experience for kids! Cute !! Amazing post!


These are great tips you have put together. Puppies are hard work and there is a lot to consider before taking in a new puppy!


This is something we’ve never done. I think your strategies would help a lot! I didn’t know dogs would try to establish an alpha!


My neighbors have a new daschund (spelling??) puppy and it is ADORABLE. I want one so badly – these are great tips for me to pass along.


Everyone should know this, introducing puppiies in your family is such an important. Sometimes people didn’t know this.


This is great advice! We had a dog when the kids were born, but I know someday, we will have to choose a family dog… and need to figure out how to introduce everyone to each other!


It’s really nice to have a pet that your kids will love. It defnitely brings more joy in the household. I agree with your pointers right here. It takes s little patience but it has to be done.


Love this post. Great helpful tips for welcoming a new puppy


We haven’t had a pet for quite a long time but I’ll keep this post in mind if we do get one!


We’re looking to get a puppy so this was a really useful read for me!


I never thought about how stressful might be for a puppy to be taken to a new family. I am a cat owner and I guess the process of getting them into the family was the other way around, they came to our garden and we simply adopted them.


This is so important! Bringing home a new puppy is such a monumental experience and it is so easy to make mistakes. Everyone should reads this info!


We have never done this. I like dogs, but they are too much work. Maybe when my little one gets bigger we can get a family dog.


We had our dogs prior to kids so the dogs. The dogs adjusted easily to each new child. I have been curious how things would go if we fought another puppy in.


These are all great tips on introducing a puppy to your family. Right now my oldest wants a cat, so I am trying to figure out a great way to introduce a cat to our dogs … not quite ready yet!


We have been considering getting a dog for a while now. We know that we don’t want a puppy, but I bet these tips are wonderful for a new dog of any age!


My cousin’s family have a new puppy. It’s a lot of work but of course having a puppy brings so much happiness. It’s good to know all this before. Thanks for sharing!

You’ve decided to bring home a new puppy. This can be an exciting time for your family. However, there are things you want to remember when introducing your new friend to the family. Whether it’s to get down on his level or hold him while he gets use to others, you’ll want to follow these tips to introduce a new puppy to your family.


Get Down to His Level


It can be so intimidating to the puppy for everyone to crowd around him. He’s a small guy and everyone standing up can be really scary. This can cause the puppy to cower or lash out to protect himself. Instead, have everyone get down in the floor before bringing the puppy into the room. This way, the puppy can run around and meet all the new people.


Hold the Puppy While He Gets Used to Others


Until your puppy gets used to other people, you should hold and comfort him. This will reassure him that he’s in a safe place. It won’t take long until your new puppy is wanting to visit with others to be held and loved on.


Don’t Let Kids Lunge at the Puppy


You never, ever want to let your children lunge at the puppy. Your kids may be excited to have a new puppy in the house, but moving too quickly can scare the puppy. Instead, you should have your children reach out to pet the puppy slowly. This way they don’t frighten him with sudden movements.


Let the Puppy Learn Everyone’s Scent


Have your kids hold out their hands for the puppy to smell before they try to pet him. This is something your children should do with any new dog they meet. Doing this allows the puppy to get the child’s scent and learn that the person is friendly. It’s also a good way to calmly approach the pet.


Accept the Natural Order


Last, but not least, if you have other dogs in the home, you need to understand that dogs are going to create a pack and choose a top dog. This means that your new puppy may decide to exert dominance over the other dogs or your older dogs may exert dominance. Either way, you need to let your dogs determine who’s boss. This is completely natural. However, do not allow them to hurt one another.


A new puppy can be a great addition to your home, but you need to take steps to introduce your new pet to your family. As long as you take time and teach your children how to properly approach the puppy, your children will soon have a new friend to love and care for.
