There are few presents that can light up a Christmas morning like a brand new Goldendoodle puppy. Giving a puppy as a gift for Christmas isn’t quite as simple as you might think, however. There are a few things that you have to consider and plan for to make sure that everything goes just right. Here are some tips for welcoming your brand new Christmas Goldendoodle puppy into your home!
The Christmas morning surprise
Unwrapping a puppy on Christmas morning can create a memorable experience that will last a lifetime. Surprising your family with a Christmas Goldendoodle puppy is surprisingly challenging, however.
Puppies need a lot of attention, they need to go outside to run around and play, they may bark, whimper, or whine, and they make messes until they are house trained. Puppies don’t exactly sit patiently in your closet until it’s time for them to come out Christmas morning.
This means that you have to find a place to keep your Goldendoodle puppy until Christmas morning. Friends, neighbors, or relatives may let your keep the puppy at their house until Christmas morning, especially if you plan make arrangements to stop by and care for your new Goldendoodle puppy.
As far as the actual presentation goes, you have a few options.
- You can carry your Christmas Goldendoodle puppy out with a festive bow.
- Maybe you let your adorable little Christmas Goldendoodle bound down the stairs with a big bow tied to his collar.
- There’s also the classic puppy in a box method.
How to put a puppy in a box for Christmas
- Choose a large gift box so that your Goldendoodle puppy has plenty of room.
- Do not wrap the box! A gift box with a removable lid is key. Wrapping paper can make it difficult for your puppy to breathe, it can be difficult to remove quickly, and once your puppy is in the box, he will have to stay there until it’s time to unwrap the presents.
- Line the bottom of the gift box with newspaper.
- Be sure to put plenty of air holes in the box so the puppy can breath freely.
- Play with your puppy before he goes into the box. This way he will be more likely to sleep and won’t get restless.
- Put your Goldendoodle puppy in the box just before it’s time to open gifts. This means that your puppy is in the box for as short a time as possible.
The easy way to give a puppy as a gift
As anti-climactic as it is, the easiest way to give someone a puppy for Christmas is to give them the puppy early. While maybe not as much fun as a surprise puppy, it will be much more manageable and far less stressful.
Another option is to bring the gift recipient along to pick up the puppy. This can be a fun and exciting experience and it allows you to avoid any issues with keeping the puppy a secret.
Don’t forget the accessories
Remember that your Goldendoodle puppy needs a few things to feel welcomed into his new home. There will be plenty of love, but there are some things that you will have to pick up from the store.
Your puppy needs a bed, food and water bowls, food, treats, a chew toy, a collar, and a leash. Many businesses and stores are closed on Christmas Day, so pick up these items or you may have to wait until Boxing Day.
Don’t wait until the last minute
Of course, you need to make sure that you have your Goldendoodle puppy ready in time for Christmas! You can’t wait until the weekend before Christmas: the busiest shopping day of the year. You should start looking for Goldendoodle puppies for Christmas well before the holiday arrives. We can help with that.
