Need a guide to gaining your pups approval? Valgray has Boo's guide for you! So, whether it is a new boo, old boo or Owoooooboo, here are 5 surefire ways to win your partner's pup over and get you that paw print of approval!

1. Don’t be an eager beaver.

Ignore the pup completely while interacting with each other. This allows the pooch to see their parent like and accept you. Letting the doggo watch you in a loving and familiar environment will likely boost the four-legged family members paws-itive opinion of you.

Just be upfront and let the doggos parent know what you are trying to achieve. Simply state that you would love to interact with their fur baby when the pup is comfortable, ready and willing. Did someone say extra brownie points?!

2. Look into your lover's eyes, not their dogs.

Reserves your lingering and loving stares for your partner, and avoid direct eye contact with their pup. Eye contact in Puppy World can be a threat or a challenge. Definitely, something we want to avoid!

3. Come bearing gifts.

This one is a twofer! Consider showing up to date night with some treats (to reward a good boi or girl) and an enrichment toy for calm mental stimulation. You could even throw in a little bling for good measure with one of our Premium Valgray Dog Collars.

Remember, always double-check with your date which collar measurements will fit best. Also, ask which treats and toys are safe for the intended doggie. We say this because every pup is different, and you need to consider food allergies, breed-specific needs, and medical conditions. Not to mention, these queries might gain you tons of extra brownie points!

4. Be a considerate boo.

Fur children function best with routine and structure, so consider this when scheduling dates. If the pup needs their walk, consider working their needs into your romantic plans.

5. Prep for the pleasures of play.

There is nothing quite like the bonding experience play can offer people and pups. Playtime doesn't only give the doggo exercise and gets rid of anxious energy; but also lets you get to know the pooch a bit better.

Just make sure you stick within the pups limits and never try to force a play session. We strongly advise not to engage in rough play with the doggie because it can create negative associations that can be very hard to break.

When you consistently show understanding for their needs, cherish and care for them, you will be on your way to being the new favourite in the house.

Now that you have the tools, you can successfully win over your partner's pup. Just remember to live in the moment because that is the way of the dog!

Personal customisation

We try our best to cater to every breed, but some doggos might need a little extra at-home customisation to achieve the perfect fit. Our PVC-coated nylon straps are soft, making adjustments at home very easy. Use a standard leather punching tool to add additional holes, or use a utility knife to trim the length of your collar.
