New puppy dizzy after ride home
by Shayne Adams
Just got my puppy home he was energetic at first, now dizzy acting and just lays down.
Is this normal?
It's a huge change for a young puppy to leave his momma and littermates and make the scary journey to his new home. THEN, he has to get used to new sights, sounds, smells, people, pets..... it's exhausting and stressful for him.
It's quite normal for a puppy to feel overwhelmed by all of this and to withdraw a little bit. It's his way of protecting himself and it will disappear as he begins to feel more at home and confident in his new surroundings.
My Bringing Home A New Puppy page has lots of tips, advice and information about what to expect during the first few days, or week. I think you'll find it helpful and it will also put your mind at rest somewhat.
Best of luck with your new puppy.
