When bringing your pup into a new place, make sure to have some of their belongings with them. Whether it is a toy or a blanket, make sure the item has their scent on it.
Going to a new place can be fun – and scary. For some dogs, a new place can be equally exciting as it is frightening. While we might not be able to fully anticipate how our furry companions will react, bringing along something familiar with their scent is a good way to keep your dog from becoming too anxious or nervous in a new environment. With everything around them being different than what they’re used to, these items are important in order to provide them with a comfortable sense of belonging.
