October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. Whether this is your first pet adoption or you're a longtime pet parent, adopting a new pet can bring both excitement and challenges.
As a dog-loving home builder in Central Florida, we know that your pets are a big part of your family and today, we have some helpful tips to get off on the right paw when adopting a new pup into your home.
The first few days are a critical time for your dog to start settling in, and getting prepared ahead of time can help ease this transition.
Moving into a new home can be stressful, and it's no different for a dog - Not only are they moving into a new home but meeting new people and animals!
A dog’s schedule should include time to eat, sleep, exercise, and spend quality time with their people. Setting up structure in your dog's life will help them learn what to expect from you, establish boundaries, and deter boredom and behavioral issues.
If you’re on the hunt for a new home in Florida with pet-friendly amenities, we're here to help! From big backyard to neighborhood dog parks and pet-friendly activities close to home, give us a call or email to connect with a Florida New Home Specialist for help finding the perfect neighborhood and home for you and your fur-babies!
