Welcoming a new puppy home is exciting, and it’s normal to have plenty of questions. One of the most common questions from new parents is “when is it safe to start walking my new puppy outside?” While your instinct may be to protect your new pup from the outside world, giving him or her plenty of outdoor time is crucial. Make sure your dog is equipped with tags, a secure collar, is on a leash and is microchipped before taking those first steps around the neighborhood.
We all need a good night’s sleep. If you plan on crate training your dog, make sure the crate area is set up before welcoming him or her to their new home. Leave the crate open so that they can go in to get away in case they get overwhelmed.

Many shelter and rescue organizations recommend waiting three days before bathing. Petfinder shares a list of must-do tips for the first 30 days of adoption.
