You’ve added a new, furry addition to your family and can’t wait to introduce them to your loved ones. Much like a baby announcement, you want the announcement of your new canine companion to be memorable and positive.
From a kitschy movie trailer and a holiday card to a puppy party, there are several ways you can introduce your new pup to your family and friends. Here are five ways that are both fun and creative.
Surprise your extended family and friends with a video call, where you can share live videos of your fur baby. Utilize apps like FaceTime, Skype or WhatsApp to connect with your loved ones.
A video call is a simple and classic way to share the news with your friends and loved ones, allowing you to get their reactions in real-time. This is also an opportunity to show them your puppy’s personality, so they know what to expect when they come over for their first visit.
Send out your season’s greetings with a glam shot of your new pet. You and your family can pose for a professional photographer with your new puppy and use the photo for your holiday cards.
The process of sending holiday cards is fun and easy, with the recipient and returning addresses printed right on your envelopes and even custom postage stamps available that match your card’s design. With a well-designed card, your new, furry family member can adorn many of your friends’ refrigerators.
Take your video introduction to a theatrical level and create a movie trailer that showcases your puppy. As such, do some film trailer research online that will inspire how you compose your trailer storyline. Essentially, your trailer should have an introductory statement, a video montage with clever narration and a closing that leaves the audience with a question or builds anticipation.

Pet Social Media Account
Did you know 1 in 6 pet owners have created a social media account for their pet? Indeed, that’s a unique and opportune way to share a day in the life of your new pet. Through your pet’s account, you can post cute photos and videos of their daily life and document their growth.
Moreover, when you create an account for your puppy, your friends and family can stay updated on all the cute things you’re doing together. Now, you don’t want to bore your followers with the same style of photos and posts.
Instead, learn how to post interesting content for the followers of your pet account from high-profile social media accounts that have gained celebrity status. This form of announcement and introduction is great if you live far from your loved ones, as they will be able to connect with this exciting, new part of your life.
Sometimes it’s best to introduce your puppy in-person to friends and loved ones, so everyone can have a chance to meet one another and, most importantly, your puppy has an opportunity to develop social skills with other humans and dogs.
For example, hold a puppy party for your friends and their canine pets that exudes a festive atmosphere for all attendees. Host the party in a dog-friendly area where the pups can engage in off-leash play and the humans can enjoy refreshments and conversation. Treat your guests to dog-themed party bags that contain dog treats, chew toys, human treats and a handwritten note.
