One of the most exciting ways to celebrate the arrival of your new puppy is with a formal introduction to the world. It’s an incredibly special time when you first bring a new pet home. Naturally, you want to be able to capture those priceless first moments. Check out these four new puppy announcement ideas for a chance to show off your new furry family member to friends and family with style.

Four must-try new puppy announcement ideas

1. Chalkboard ‘baby pet’ announcement

Announce your puppy as part of the family with a chalkboard announcement. Obviously, puppies grow up so quickly and you want to be able to capture the size and all the details down to their tiny paws. Consider creating an artistic postcard or flyer to mail to family and friends. It certainly is just one of the new puppy announcement ideas that can help capture one of the first memories of your new family member.

2. “We’re expecting” social media post

When you have the opportunity to expand your family, it can be one of the most memorable moments of your life. Naturally, pets are family, so why not take to the internet and announce your family expansion in a fun social media post. Further, baby pets, like puppies and kittens are often unpredictable. This announcement idea is the perfect recipe for an interesting and humorous addition to your social feed.

3. First day home family photo

Nothing says welcome to the family like a family photo! Once every member of the family gets settled, set aside some quality family time and capture those candid moments. Consider hiring a professional or take the photos yourself. There certainly is value in having someone else take the photos-even just a friend-, so all members of the family are able to enjoy the family time and no one misses out.

4. Throw a new puppy party

A new member of the family is here, it’s time to celebrate! Consider throwing a new puppy party to celebrate the arrival of your furry friend. In addition, it gives your new puppy quality enrichment and interactive time with everyone in the family. Also, so your new puppy doesn’t feel overwhelmed, have a pet space set aside that they can go if they want to rest and relax, like a dog bed or dog crate.
