We hear from a handful of clients that when they adopt a pet, they expected a miraculous moment where the pet and the owner were just best friends immediately. Where the pet is like all those cute animal photos and videos you see on social media. That may not always be the case!
Every pet is different and has its own personality. Some are more skittish or more hyper than others. Some require more training than others, and have their own way of communicating with you. It all just depends. That is why is it very important to do a bit of research on the pet and/or breed that you plan to adopt before adopting it. Each pet is going to adjust differently, and it may be very strange for them. So please, be very patient with your new furry friend.
For dogs and cats, give them a safe place like a crate, a bed area, or just a place for them to hide. That will be there u201csafe zoneu201d. It takes time for them to adjust. Give it up to a week or two for them to get into a routine.
