To help your new furry friend get comfortable in their forever home, we recommend serving them the nutrition and unique benefits found in ACANA Rescue Care for Adopted Dogs. Here are some other tips from the ACANA veterinarian for welcoming your new dog.
It may take up to 90 days for your dog to become comfortable and engaged in their new environment, so be patient and be sure to give them time to adjust.
Feed them ACANA Rescue Care for Adopted Dogs on a schedule that works for both of you; multiple smaller meals are best, especially at first.
Switch your dog's food gradually to give your dog time to adjust and reduce the changes of digestive upset. Start by mixing 25% new diet with the 75% old diet, and slowly increase the new diet over the course of 5-7 days until you are feeding 100% new diet.
Give them their own private, comfy spot on a dog bed or crate so they can rest and relax.
Wait one week before taking them on any outings.
Always trust your instincts when caring for your new dog, but don't be afraid to reach out to a trainer or behaviorist if you need help.
