The top four things you can do to make your new senior dog feel at home:
- Prepare a place all his own, perhaps a crate with the door off or a comfy dog bed in a quiet corner that he can retreat to for rest and security.
- Make it easy for him to stay hydrated by placing sources of fresh water in a few convenient places.
- Are you using a new name? Give attention or a treat when you say it.
- Escort the dog to his elimination spots frequently a minimum of four times daily.
