Joining a new family requires TIME to learn your routine, your schedule, your expectations, your communication.... it is like YOU moving to a foreign country and not knowing the custom or language BUT yet YOU are expected to follow the routine. Patience is required to help your new furry companion learn and adjust to his/her new environment and family. Some dogs adjust quickly and some take at least 4 weeks... just like people: some are shy and apprehensive and some are out-going and ready to join the party. Please take time to assess your dog's personality and help him/her become acclimated to all family members slowly if need be.
