Luis Escobar, Miami Dog Trainer speaks about preparing for a puppy.
Babies and puppies are both adorable. Both take patience, guidance and love. With puppies, the more prepared you are for their arrival, the better off you will be. Without a plan, both you and your puppy will be stressed and who wants that?
Bark Busters has trained more than 1M dogs in seven countries of all ages, sizes and breeds. There is no such thing as an untrainable dog … but there is such a thing as an unsuitable dog. When bringing the right puppy into your home, you need to select the right breed, age, size and background of your puppy. It’s important that the puppy fit your lifestyle.
Things to Consider Preparing For a Puppy
Here are some important tips before you bring home a puppy:
Where Should You Get a Puppy?
Once you have decided on the breed, you need to decide if you want to contact a breeder or adopt from a shelter. If you are using a breeder, make sure you use a reputable breeder. Do you want a pure bred? Responsible breeders breed for temperament, health and breed conformity and normally succeed via referral business.
Shelter dogs make great pets, and you have the satisfaction of knowing you have saved a dog’s life. I have trained hundreds of shelter puppies and I can honestly tell you there is no difference in terms of training. It is no harder to train a shelter dog versus a pure bred.
