The transitional period normally takes around 10 days, during that period your puppy may not want to eat well. The entire environment is new for him/her, from sights and sounds to smells. To make the adjustment easier, you should allow him/her to have plenty of rest time in a safe place; that is why a crate is important. Please, feed as we have directed in your care video and give us a call if your puppy is not eating enough or if he/she doesn’t have at least 2 bowel movements a day. A decline in your puppy’s health state can appear quickly. Our puppies’ health is our top priority.
We strongly recommend crate training! We have available crate kits at the club that you can pick up on adoption day.
It is important that you teach your puppy how to walk on a leash at a young age. We recommend that you walk your puppy using a harness, NOT a collar. A collar can put too much pressure on your puppies developing trachea. Do not leave your puppy unattended with his/her harness on, your puppy could potentially chew it off.

Generally, small-town vets are the best and they are more educated. You can find a good one through recommendations. You can search for reviews on google and see what other clients are saying. We do not recommend large chain hospitals, our clients have had very disappointing experiences and we want your new puppy to have the best possible Vet experience. We do not cover any warranty claim from Banfield Pet Hospitals (Petsmart) or Thrive (Petco). We have made this decision based on the fact that our clients have had disappointing experiences with them in the past and we want all of our puppies to have a positive Veterinarian experience.
Abide by our recommended feeding. In addition to that: 1 hour after meals, you need to syringe your new puppy 9cc (3syringes) of just baby food/karo. Specific directions will be on your care video and on your take-home sheet. If you don’t think your puppy is eating enough, please reach out to our 24 puppy care line (704) 781-7639.
Purina pro Plan puppy is what we feed the majority of our small breed puppies.
You need to call our 24 hour puppy care team (704) 781-7639. Be aware that puppies are like babies and need to be fed every 2 to 3 hours. Furthermore, small breeds are different than larger breeds, so they need to be handled differently. Allow your pup to have 24/7 access to their dry kibble food. Over-eating is rare among small breeds. In addition to their hard food, it is recommended to give your pup rotisserie chicken or yogurt, to entice your pup to eat. Sometimes, small breed puppies deal with the loss of their appetite because of the change of their environment. Please, keep in mind that the encouragement you give your pup during the transition is not causing bad habits. We recommend a high protein diet that has proven to have effective results during the transition period.
We do strongly recommend that you continue to feed your puppy Pro Plan Puppy. If you choose to change brands, please do NOT do so during the transitional period (first 10 days). We would like it if you fed the puppy the way we fed him/her at the club. Your puppy needs to have protein for proper development, make sure that if you choose to change brands DO NOT feed a vegetarian food. Start with 75% Pro Plan with 25% new food for 3 days. Next, 50% Pro Plan with 50% new food for 3 days. Next, 25% Pro Plan with 75% new food for 3 days. We also recommend placing your puppy on a prebiotic during the change in food, because oftentimes a change in diet can affect their little bellies.
