It will be hard to resist picking up a cute little puppy from your local pet store. Most pet owners rush in to close the deal, more often than not. What they don’t understand is a puppy comes with a whole lot of responsibility. Spending major part of your day for your puppy is a real prospect. More like babies, they cry and crave for attention. It will be a hard first day to lock it up in a crate. A newborn or few weeks old is a raw deal. It is not toilet trained, and it doesn’t learn much in puppy mill environment.

Age matters…

Best age for the puppy to be taken home is 12-14 weeks. It is the ideal time to introduce your furry friend into household. Older puppies are least likely to bond well with your family. Puppy that is too small and young, it wouldn’t have experienced adequate social interaction. It will see you as a threat or enemy, which is a recipe for disaster.

Avoid puppy mills…

Don’t do it the run of the mills way while purchasing your puppy. It is your social responsibility to avoid puppy mills. The horrors of puppy mills are hard to forget for the puppy. Puppy mills place puppies in glasses, where numerous people rudely poke at glass and do unwanted stuff. Breeders are the ones who care for the puppy and they happen to be the best place where a prospective owner can get one.

Learn about the mother…

Dogs tend to carry strong imprint from their mothers. If the mother is an aggressive dog, puppy will be one as well. Puppy with a mother, willing to interact is the best choice for dog owners. You need to know about the mother before bringing your furry pet home. To find out its breed, you must know about both parents.
