PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Pennsylvania SPCA animal advocate Carol Erickson joins Eyewitness News for this week’s CBS3 Pet Project. This week’s segment talks about what to do when bringing home a new dog.

The best time to bring home a new dog is in the morning or early afternoon because they get very anxious towards dinner time and bedtime.

You can watch the full discussion in the video above. 

The 3rd Annual Puppapalooza at the Pier will be held at Morgan’s Pier the evening of Thursday, August 29. Phillies’ Scott Kingery will be this year’s special guest.
