Default Puppy Arriving Jan 23rd

Hello Everyone ,

My name is Sumeet . We are getting a Maltese Male Puppy who is ready to be flown to Calgary on Jan 23rd 2020 . We have named him Jasper .
We are starting to prepare for his arrival .

We have got basic necessity items ( playpen , bed , clothes , food ) for him . Can you please provide your valuable input about other tips we need to be aware of for his arrival.

Thanks a lot ,

Sumeet

Hi, congratulations! My best tip is just to love. Puppies are a challenge sometimes, but they are such a precious gift of lifelong friendship, so cherish that friendship. I also suggest setting a schedule very soon. Eat/potty/play/rest etc, so potty training is a bit easier. Remember, little ones can dehydrate or have low sugar very quickly, so really read up and understand about that. Be sure to look at car seats with safety features, this is too often overlooked and the number of pets lost in vehicle accidents is heartbreaking and astounding. Again though, just remember in the midst of all the “details” to enjoy and bond with your new little one. This is an incredibly sensitive and loyal breed. They pick up on the slightest shift in mood and energy.

Thanks you so much for your valuable feedback. My CKC registered breeder recommends IAMS smart puppy food. I live in Calgary so I would need winter boots for Jasper.
Can you please recommend the perfect size and brand I should buy. .
I am sorry but I might have many questions for you gurus

I donít put boots on my girls but I did gift a pair of Canada Pooch booties for a friends poodle puppy and I was impressed how easy she took to them.
