Puppy Tips

When deciding to buy a thoroughbred dog, you need to consider how your relatives and neighbors will relate to it. Of course, if we are talking about a private house with a large fence, then those living nearby are unlikely to be against such a purchase. But if we are talking about housing conditions, then the whining of a young puppy or barking of an already adult dog can adversely affect relations with neighbors. Also, keeping a dog requires considerable financial costs: visiting a veterinary clinic, feeding the animal and caring for it. Having a dog just for the entertainment of children or on a whim is not worth it. Therefore, it is recommended to buy a puppy only with a strong desire, readiness and the possibility of its maintenance in the necessary conditions, the availability of free time for training and care.

You should be aware that all dog breeds are divided into 3 groups – service, hunting and decorative. Therefore, it is important to find out in advance for what purpose the dog is acquired. You should not buy a dog with it on the street or in the market – this way you can buy not only a non-purebred dog, it can also turn out to be sick. Of course, it is better to choose with a specialist, but if he is not there, you must try to do it yourself by contacting a nursery or bona fide breeders.

The first thing you should pay attention to is the pedigree of the puppies. In this case, the dog should not have crossbreeds with other dog breeds. The ideal number of litter is not more than 6 puppies. You should not take the smallest puppy from the litter – often such puppies are more painful than their brothers. Before acquiring a puppy, it is advisable to show it to the veterinarian for examination. The puppies born in winter are considered to be the strongest, having a shiny coat and a color characteristic of the breed.

If you want to choose the most courageous among the many puppies in the kennel, you can reach out to them or throw keys near them: the panties will scatter to the sides, and the bolder ones will come to find out what is the matter. When choosing a puppy’s sex, you need to know that boys are always larger and more aggressive than girls, and also less obedient and not as attached to their masters as girls. For hunting or for protection purposes it is better, of course, to take a male. As a domestic dog, it is better to take a bitch, as they are more tame and calm. If there are children in the house, then it is better to choose a decorative or small dog. In any case, the dog’s temperament will depend mainly on its training and the attitude of the owner.
