Your new puppy will come home with a "New Puppy Pack" full of tons of items you will want & need! New Puppy Packs will include AKC Paperwork (if applicable), vaccination/deworming records, puppy blanket, toy, pet wipes, disposable pee pads, disposable poop bags, nail scissors, puppy collar, 3 days worth of raw diet, and sometimes some surprise items! **From time to time, items will be excluded if I run out of the item.
Your new puppy is trained to use pee pads. We do not start outdoor potty training until puppies are full vaccinated (13 weeks minimum) due to puppies not having a full immunity until fully vaccinated. We use washable pads for the entire whelping pen, but train them to use a disposable pee pad inside a pee pad holder - this helps to give them a sense of "where" to pee. It is 100% your choice as to whether you let your puppy outside prior to 13 weeks or not. We STRONGLY suggest NOT to allow your puppy onto public grass/concrete/etc until fully vaccinated as you have no idea what animals have traveled, through.
Your new puppy is accustomed to a raw diet, and while we greatly hope you will continue the raw diet, if you choose to transition to a kibble diet then you will need to follow a few steps. Start off by feeding the 3 days worth of raw diet that we provided in your "New Puppy Pack". You do not want to change too many variables at once, and we actually recommend continuing the raw diet for a minimum of 1 month inorder to allow your puppy to adjust too all other changing variables prior to changing diet. However, if you want to immediately change to kibble after those first 3 days of raw diet, then you will need to slowly introduce the kibble by feeding multiple small meals of kibble.
All puppies are used to being in their whelping pens, and we recommend crate training as well. Dachshunds are michevious and notorious for getting into this they are not supposed to. Crates are for their protection, and they honestly grow to love their crate.
