Hello Jack, the first day in the house

You are well prepared to meet Jack.  Finally it happened so long awaited event: you brought him home. He is a pathetic, helpless, and he causes a smile of tenderness. Ask the breeder give you anything from his house, it can be a rag, toy, diaper scented mother. Put this item on the couch and get a puppy to know the place where he will sleep. Show all apartment to Jack, giving him the opportunity to stay in every room, but not necessarily under your watching. Meet the puppy with all the family members. Show him toys, play with him.

Young puppies prefer two activities - play and sleep. And, they sleep long, and often selflessly. Once Jack played enough with all, take him to the place, let him sleep, Do not awake a puppy, even if you think it's time to eat. He wakes up himself. Immediately after waking up puppy usually has to go to the toilet. Do not miss a moment of his awakening. He certainly will begin to yawn and stretch. At this point, take him on your hands and put on disposable diaper or spread out newspaper. When the puppy will make a puddle, praise him. Do not remove this wet diapers, and just cover the top by clean one so the smell will stay and puppy will know the place where the toilet is.

While the whole family are busy by little Jack, he is relatively calm, passionate with new furnishings, toys, fun kids. But the night is approaching and it's time to go to bed. We can say with certainty that you won’t sleep this first night. Little Jack has just lost his family, mother, brothers and sisters. Around alien world, alien smells. You have not yet become his pack. He's alone for the first time in his short life. Of course, he would cry. 

Do not take the little puppy to your bed at night. Not because it's bad example or unhygienic, but because when you fall asleep, the puppy may fall or jump off the bed and somehow to hurt himself at night. 

The first instinct on his weeping would be to take him a bed. That first night determines all. If you invite your puppy to your bedroom, it will be his sleeping place for a lifetime. If you wait a bit, then the puppy will soon calm down and fall asleep on a mattress on the place that you have chosen for him, or that he will choose himself. 

Put in his cradle warm hot water bottle wrapped in a towel scented by his mother so it will be cozy place and he’ll fell calm. Put in a room where Jack will sleep, clock ticking monotonic and loud, they will attract the puppy’s interest and distract from the sad thoughts.
