My first litter will be going to their new homes at the end of the week and I was wondering what people tend to send along in the new puppy packet. I am planning on including their health care record, their weekly growth pictures, a copy of the dam and sire's papers and their microchip registry packet. What am I missing?
Puppy policy if it is not part of your contract/warranty, mine basically spells out a little about training, socialization, vaccination, spay/neuter, etc.
What you are feeding and how much, how many times per day. I always give a small bag of food which will have the ingredients listed, so if they want to switch, they will have an idea of what the pup does ok on.
I usually include a small leadership booklet by Colleen McCollough (sp. not sure)
I add a list on household dangers.
And I add a list on AKC dog-sports/events with a description of each.
I used to put a page of business cards and populate it with my card, my trainer's, vets, groomers, ER, etc. And I explain that they can put their people's card there, and then they always have the numbers when they need them.
Also a sheet that can be kept in the vehicle, populated for emergency care call numbers and authorization in case there is an accident.
