How's It Going?
Bet you’re needing an extra cup of joe this morning, huh? Those first few nights of having a new pup home are exhausting. Hang in there, it’s temporary. As he or she acclimates and settles into a routine it’ll become easier with each passing day. You’ll settle into a rhythm. Pinky promise.
Has pup seen a vet yet? Time to do that if you haven’t already, and take your puppy's Medical Report. Your vet will perform a wellness exam (this is what puts our health guarantee in effect), they’ll get you started on tick/flea/heartworm preventatives, and schedule upcoming vaccinations.
If you aren’t already a member, The GVD Gathering Place would love to have you! That’s our private Facebook group for GVD families … a wonderful and kind community, and a cool place to watch your puppy’s sibs grow up.
We have tons of recommendations, but if there’s one that will change your life, it’s this: invest in Baxter and Bella’s online puppy training.
