Go to your farm's mailbox and open it to get everything you need for your dog, including the dog order. Place the dog bed on your home's floor (even if the home is not complete). To introduce a new dog into your house, equip the Dog Order and place it on the Dog Bed. The more recent this item is, the faster it will be delivered.
Also note that some items are unavailable in certain regions. These include: Beef (Australia), Pork (South America) and Poultry (Europe).
The box should indicate which region is missing from your map. You can still receive all other items in any case!
If you own a restaurant, you can ask customers to fill out a DOG ORDER FORM when they come in. This way, you can keep track of which dogs have been adopted and which ones need to be returned to their owner. If someone returns a dog that was ordered by another customer, that person will receive credit for a free dog meal at an approved restaurant within Farm Town.
You can also sell dog treats and toys in your Restaurant. Make sure to use only healthy food items or your customers may object to what they think is animal cruelty.
Finally, you can participate in the Dog Racing Scene in Farm Town. You can buy or rent race tracks and sponsor dogs before each race.
How should I introduce my dog to his new surroundings? Introduce your dog to your new house by showing him about, both inside and outside, with a cheerful voice, treats, and play. Lay out his toys and show him where his food dishes and sleeping quarters are. The familiarity of a familiar bed or box might be beneficial. If he is used to other dogs, then introducing them slowly is best.
If you have another dog in the family, it's important to let him know that this new dog is now in his territory by putting up a sign or two. It's also helpful if you take one thing away from the old house and leave it in a different place in the new one. This way, there's no confusion about which house he should go to first.
Finally, don't rush things. Take it slow and steady. Your dog will be happy to help out by playing dead, looking guilty, etc., if he's not yet comfortable with this new person in his life.
Most day cares require that you drop off your own dog because they need to make sure that all their residents get along. However, some centers may allow certain dogs in specific rooms so check ahead of time to see what they allow.
It's typically not a good idea to pay a visit to a dog after it's been rehomed since interaction with you may confuse the dog. You may, however, request photographs and updates, and after a year or two, when the dog has settled into his new home, visits may be possible. However, it is recommended that you avoid visiting ex-patients until they've had time to adjust to their new life.
Maintain a peaceful and tranquil environment so that your dog does not perceive your departure and return as a big issue. Do not leave your dog in an exposed area of your home where he or she might potentially destroy anything. Also, make sure that the door to your home is locked, just in case.
If you are going out for any length of time, then it is best to leave your dog at home. This way, he or she will not be left alone if someone is coming over or if you go to work during daylight hours.
It is recommended to keep your dog on a leash when out in public. This way, if your dog gets into something dangerous, someone can pull him or her back out of harm's way.
Finally, remember that your dog thinks and feels just like you do. So, if you have anxiety about being away from home, then so will your dog. However, if you take the necessary steps to deal with this anxiety, then so will your dog. And with time and patience, you will get through these difficult times together.
