Taking your puppy home

The dog has a spirited boldness and is fiercely proud with a good nature and a feeling of artlessness. The Shiba is able to move quickly with nimble, elastic steps.

Recommendations for taking your puppy home

  • Dog crate. This is an invaluable tool for keeping your puppy safe when you can’t supervise him and for simplifying your house-training routine.
  • Collar and leash.
  • Puppy food and bowls.  (We will provide a starter pack of your puppies Current Food)
  • Exercise pen or baby gates.
  • Chew toys.
  • Grooming tools.
  • Treats
  • We highly recommend NuVet for more info

  • Helpful Hints
    • Use stainless steel, non-tip food bowls, which won’t break or absorb odors.
    • Toys with parts that squeak or whistle can be dangerous if swallowed.
    • For a comfortable collar fit, allow for two fingers of space between the collar and your dog’s neck; consider using an adjustable collar.
    • Before bringing him in the house, take him to the designated potty area in your yard and spend a few minutes there. If he goes, praise him. Be sure to take him to this spot each time he potties.
