Settling your new puppy into your home.

Honey’s puppies are reserved, apart from one gorgeous little blenheim boy with a thumbspot right in the middle of his head, and I am sure it won’t be long before he finds his new home. They will be booked in for their first vaccination and microchipping on 31 January 2015. They will then be going to their new homes in the following week, but just how do you settle in your new arrival?
