Your Beagle puppy will be excited and anxious when he meets his new family, just as you will be. However, you shouldn’t let your excitement leave you unprepared for your puppy. There are certain items that your puppy will need, that you won’t want to run out and get the same day he arrives.

You may also want to consider getting a harness for your Beagle when you take him for a walk. This way you won’t be yanking his neck all the time as he goes on his constant sniffing explorations.
Bringing your Beagle home –
You should bring your puppy home at specific time, when you will have a few free days to spend with the dog to help him adjust to his new home and begin housebreaking. The best time is usually the beginning of a weekend, or even better, the beginning of a vacation you specifically took off work to welcome your dog home.
You should not introduce your dog to your home when it will be out of sorts, or you will have lots of people over. This includes major holidays, or if you have relatives visiting. You will want to keep things as normal as possible for your Beagle puppy. Limit the excitement and your visitors.
Welcoming party –
If you are bringing your Beagle puppy home to a family, make sure everyone is involved. Everyone should know the puppy’s name, and know how to handle him and all of the essentials required to keep him safe and happy. You should also take the time to introduce him to any other family pets, especially cats and rodents, so the puppy understands these are family members and not game.
Safe Home –
Finally, you need to make sure that there are no potential dangers that can harm your new Beagle puppy. Household items that can be hazardous to a dog, that you may not think about include:
All of these items should be kept off the floor and anywhere your dog may be able to reach them. You have to think of your puppy as no different then a small child. They are curious, and won’t think twice about getting into mischief if the opportunity presents itself.
