Bringing him home
We finally found our dog, and will be picking him up from YVR tonight at midnight. He is 9 mths old, and was checked in at his breeder's side at 1130am this morning, will only get here at midnight.
After 12 hrs of traveling, I plan on picking him up and getting him collared and leashed asap for a quick potty break and to stretch his legs before the 45 mins drive home. Will bring water and some treats for him too, after being fed in the early AM, i'm guessing he'll be starved.
Once home, he'll get more water and a proper kibble meal, thn a stroll through the neighbourhood so he gets to sniff around and check it out, since it's night (1amish by my estimates) it'll be quiet and hopefully he won't get as overwhelmed.
i plan on setting up his bed next to mine and give him 3 days or so to settle in and learn the routine in our house before doing introductions to neighbours and their dogs etc and beginning training.
Anything i missed out or any advice?
