you need to know.
The first thing is if you
had a dog before you have forgotten all of below.
Second no matter how well
the parents behave all of below applies.
Yes all puppies
whether they are pedigree or the most outlandish mix.
Yes if you buy a pedigree pup you will know what it
will grow up to look like.
Yes you will get a pedigree pup registered with Dogs SA from us with papers.
Yes if you buy a Groodle Spoodle etc. you will
NOT know what it will grow
up to look like.
Yes they take a lot of your time ( but it is
worth it ).
Yes they do jump up, they are looking for eye contact.
Yes they will chase young children, especially if the child runs.
Yes they bite (mouth) as their teeth come through.
Yes they dig but with training they will grow
out of it.
Yes they NEED training and
you can start while they are still a puppy.
Yes they will have accidents inside.
Yes they will grow out of it if you put some effort
into it (see above).
Yes they do learn quickly how to train you.
Yes some times they ignore you.
Yes you can train them with food, as a reward but not a bribe.
Yes training takes time, perseverance and patience.
Yes YOU have to do the training, you need to learn how
to train your dog.
Yes we highly recommend going to a
accredited obedience school to
learn how to train and
socialize your pup.
No puppy school at your local vet IS NOT enough training / socializing
No they are not little people.
No they do not understand long sentences.
Yes all of the above have
a solution but you MUST put the work in
and truly it is worth the effort.
a lick on the face from a cuddly puppy beats all the psychiatrists in the world.
