Have a look through this list of articles/guides. It covers pretty much everything you could possibly need to know!

Also, enrichment toys you can stuff with food are a bit of a godsend ime.

I am taking on a foster puppy for socialisation before they go to be trained to be a support dog for a person with disabilities.

So we will only have this pup for a year. But it is our first time at having a family pet, so we are total novices.

The society provide the crate and food, but not sure what else we need to have prepared before they arrive. Please help!
