Give Them a Tour
Another good tip is to walk your dog around your home immediately when you arrive, and on a leash.
This practice will give him a tour around your home and the property you live on and help him get used to all the smells, spaces, and things he might see around the house.
That is also important because, often, dogs will exhibit nervousness in a new environment, and on the off chance he needs to relieve himself, he will be able to do this outside your house.
Don’t be alarmed if your GSD has spontaneous diarrhea or vomiting in his first couple of days with you.
The adjustment can be very stressful for dogs and often stress manifests in dogs’ bodies through uncontrollable bodily functions.
