Things to know about bringing your new family member home.
When you adopt or foster a new GSP there is a transition period for them as well as you. This usually is not instant and requires patience and times. Your new GSP is used to someone else’s schedule. They will adapt to yours, but you will need to give it time. Recommendation is minimum of 2 weeks and sometimes up to a couple of months. It varies with each dog and their environment. Please review this article to help your dog transition.
