golden retriever puppy

Just like with a baby, all new pet parents need to consider prepping their home when they bring home a puppy. Our friends at the ASPCA® offer some great tips on what to do before you bring your new dog home.

The No. 1 tip the ASPCA® mentions is to stock up on supplies. Luckily, PetMD has a great in-depth checklist of what to get for your new puppy. Most important, don’t forget about stocking up on cleaning supplies until your new ball of fur is housetrained!
