What do I need to bring with me on the go home day?
In order to break up the trip, most families travel to our area (and stay overnight in a hotel) the day or evening before the puppies go home date. They then pick up their new puppy the next morning and travel back home.
- 1. You'll need a leash and small size collar (usually a small is somewhere between 8-12 or 10-12 inches).
- 2. Bring a Nylabone chew toy for the ride home to keep your puppy occupied, but also to imprint the experience of the car ride as enjoyable.
- 3. Bring a roll of paper towels and a 2 or 3 plastic grocery bags for trash (in case of an accident or car sickness in the car). Not all puppies get car sick.... but some do.
- 4. A medium sized crate if you don't plan on holding your puppy on the way home. If you plan on holding your puppy on the drive, you will want to bring a towel for your lap, just in case they get car sickness.
