, by leeboyce

Having an anxious puppy can be a challenge, especially during their first nights. At this time, it may display a range of emotions, from extreme exhaustion to over-excitement, depending on its personality and environment. To ensure you and your new addition have a great first night, we'll provide a range of advice and tips to help you ease your puppy's anxiety and create a welcoming and safe environment.

How to deal with an anxious puppy's first night?

1. Create a safe environment

Creating a warm, comfortable and safe environment for your puppy is crucial. Make sure your puppy feels comfortable during their first night by choosing soft bedding, providing warm lighting, and making sure there is enough space. At this special moment, the comfort of the environment is crucial to the puppy's adaptation. You can arrange soft bedding around the bed, provide warm lighting, and ensure enough space to ensure that the puppy feels at ease.

2. Establish a regular work and rest time

Puppies will feel more secure on a regular schedule. A regular schedule can provide your puppy with a sense of security, knowing when to expect meals, play, and rest. It is especially important to set regular feeding, play and rest times during the first night to help the puppy gradually adapt to his new routine. For example, establishing a warm feeding ritual in the evening so that your puppy gets warm food at a fixed time will enhance his sense of security and belonging.

3. Toys that provide comfort

Toys that provide comfort during a puppy's first night are crucial. Choosing the right chew toys and pillows can distract your puppy and relieve potential anxiety. Chew toys satisfy your puppy's desire to chew, while pillows provide warmth and peace of mind. These toys serve as companions during the first night, not only entertaining the puppies, but also helping to build a positive perception of the new environment and encourage them to adapt to their new life faster. Through care and consideration, you'll build a solid foundation for a bonding relationship between your puppy and your new addition, leading to great times ahead.

4. Gentle companionship

Gentle companionship is vital for puppies. Sitting next to him, whispering soothing words, and making him feel like you are there will help ease first night anxiety. Gradually easing away is a process, but make sure you give her enough comfort before leaving to build her confidence in being alone.

5. Gradually lead away

If your puppy appears anxious during his first night, gradually guide him away, but be sure to give him enough comfort before leaving. This helps build his confidence in being alone.
