thank you, I just lost my dog she was run over in front of our home, 2.5years old. There were some mistakes I made with her that I don't want to make again.

This is excellent advice for any dog, and especially for shelter and rescue dogs. Some dogs can be overwhelmed by having the run of a new home, right off the bat. I like the emphasis on letting the dog have plenty of opportunity to "use the yard", both before being allowed into the house, and after a little bit of exploring time. Keeping the dog on a leash will help prevent any accidents. I think the thing a majority of people worry about the most when they bring a dog home, is that the dog will "go" in the house. This method pretty much ensures that won't happen. The result is that the owners relax, and a relaxed owner greatly helps the dog to relax. Thanks for a good video.

Excellent advice. I wish I had this info when I brought my adopted dog home last year. Thankful she has turned out well.
