- Tips for the First 30 Days of Dog Adoption

- Remember the Rule of Threes
"You can expect that it will take your dog some time getting used to the new routines and adapt to his new environment. The ‘Rule of Three’ means that you can gauge the time it might take for your dog to fully acclimate to his home in threes: three days, three weeks, and three months." via Dane Co. Humane Society
