Ooooh Very good idea. *scribbles it down on the notepad of notes I've been taking from this site*

I took them outside right away, then left them to explore while keeping an eye on them.

Took him outside to show him where to go potty, and then introduced him to the cats.

Let her go to the loo outside, then took her into the kitchen, which was 'her' space to begin with.

Showed her her bed, water etc then just sat on the floor and watched her!!!

She wanted to play, so we played for a bit, then she crashed out and snoozed!!

When I first brought Bailey home, he was so calm and almost seemed sedated. So all he did was cuddle. So I set up his food/crate area and showed him everything, then we cuddled on the couch for the rest of the evening. He also had his first meal when we got home b/c we had had a very long day by that time.

Brought Boone inside, then straight to the backdoor for potty time. Always good to start nice habits early. Then back inside so we could watch him and figure out what his name was. We played, he got a tour of him new home, and then I called friends over to meet him, but only a few since I didn't want to scare him. He fell asleep.

Well with Hannah I basically introduced her to the other dogs, found a crate small enough to fit her, and then watched her and let her explore and took her outside every so often.

With Holly we took her to the petstore to get a bath and new toys right away. When we got home we let her meet Hannah outside first thing, then I took her inside and showed her her toys and food and water bowl, I fed the girls and then we all played and snuggled and had a good time.
Secret to a successful life is not in playing a good hand, but in playing a poorly delt hand well.

Shippo arrived at my airport from Canada. I brought him home in his crate, sat it down, and opened the door and let him sit in it until he felt like coming out. When he came out I took him outside in the back yard and we walked around. No pottying, so I brough him back in and stuck him back in the crate (potty training started on day 1 lol). Then I fed him in there since it had been a long trip.

Afterwards, I gave him a bath, as he'd had an accident during the flight. The people in customs cleaned his crate for me before I got there, but Shippo was stinky lmao...

I carried him to the store when he was dry, and got his leash and collar (didn't put him on the ground though). Then we went home and I took some pictures.

Err... that's about it on the first day.

I picked up my Cane Corso from the airport and on the way home she sat on my lap chewing a braided bully stick. Once home I let her loose, but I was beside her the whole time and she stayed in the sun room.
