Barking Up the Family Tree

January 17, 20242 min read

Say goodbye to that pristine, minimalist interior design you once had.

So, you've decided to welcome a furry tornado into your already chaotic household? Congratulations! Get ready for a rollercoaster ride of fur-covered furniture, impromptu game nights of fetch, and the unfiltered joy that comes with integrating your dog into your crazy family. Buckle up, because we're about to unleash the ultimate guide on how to turn your already nutty household into a full-blown circus—with a canine ringmaster!

Family with a new puppy or Dog

The Art of Doggy Diplomacy:

First things first, let's address the elephant in the room – or should we say, the Great Dane in the living room? Your dog is about to become the newest, furriest member of your squad. Prepare for doggy diplomacy – family meetings where you discuss who gets to be the favorite parent, who's responsible for the midnight potty breaks, and most importantly, who gets custody of the squeaky toys during playtime.

Doggy Decor: From Chic to Chewed:

Say goodbye to that pristine, minimalist interior design you once had. Your dog is an artist, and your home is their canvas. Embrace the eclectic mix of paw prints on the walls, a carpet that looks like a Jackson Pollock masterpiece, and furniture with a rustic, chewed finish.

Mealtime Mayhem:

Get ready for a culinary adventure as your dog insists on being the official food critic of the family. From taste-testing leftovers to competing for the last slice of pizza, mealtime is now a canine culinary critique. Forget about that strict diet – your dog's puppy eyes are a kryptonite that even the strongest-willed family member can't resist.

Doggy Language 101:

Forget about speaking in sentences; it's time to master the art of barks, whimpers, and tail wags. Your dog is about to teach your family a whole new language. Canine communication is an essential skill for decoding messages like, "I need to go out," "I'm hungry," or the classic "It's time for belly rubs NOW!"

Impromptu Game Nights:

Move over, board games – it's time for some canine-approved fun. Fetch, tug-of-war, and hide-and-seek become nightly rituals. Just when you thought family game night couldn't get any wilder, add a four-legged friend into the mix. Warning: Laughter-induced sore muscles may occur.

Doggy Tattle Tales:

Your dog is about to become the ultimate snitch, exposing all the family secrets. From stolen socks to late-night snack raids, your furry detective will spill the beans on everyone's naughty antics. Say goodbye to clandestine operations – your dog is the keeper of the household truth.
