Tips to Ensure a Loving and Suitable Home for Your New Puppy

Your first step is to learn about the breed you are interested in.
Such as their temperament, size, exercise needs, grooming requirements, and compatibility with your lifestyle.

Once you have decided on a specific breed it is your responsibility to get informed about the health and genetic issues that can go with that particular breed. If this is a mixed breed you will need to be familiar with all breeds it represents. Such as with our Mini Labradoodle Breed, you will need to be informed about the toy / miniature poodle and the labrador retriever breed. You will want to purchase your puppy from a responsible breeder who prioritizes the health and welfare of their animals.

Knowing about the puppy’s health history, vaccinations, and any potential genetic predispositions should be discussed with the breeder. In understanding how the puppy has been socialized and exposed to different environments, people, and animals is crucial to the behavior of the puppy and to future training. Ask about the puppy’s training requirements, including basic obedience, housebreaking, and behavior management.

As potential owners, you will want to know about the initial cost of purchasing the puppy, as well as ongoing expenses such as food, grooming, veterinary care, and training. Information about licensing requirements and registering the puppy with relevant authorities may be of interest to ensure legal compliance.

Getting advice on preparing your home for the arrival of a puppy, including puppy-proofing, setting up a sleeping area, and providing appropriate toys and supplies.

Understanding the long-term commitment involved in caring for a puppy into adulthood is your responsibility as a pet owner.

 

Here is a list of questions you can ask Breeders about their puppies:

Can you provide documentation of the puppy’s health checks, vaccinations, and deworming?
Have the parents undergone health screenings for breed-specific genetic conditions?
Are there any known health issues in the puppy’s lineage?
What is the puppy’s current diet, and are there any specific dietary requirements or recommendations?
Can you provide insights into the puppy’s personality and any observed behaviors?
What kind of health guarantee or contract do you offer for your puppies?
What support do you offer after the purchase, such as advice on training, behavior, or health issues?
What preparations do I need to make for the puppy’s arrival?

Here is a list of questions the breeder should be asking you:

How familiar are you with the specific needs and characteristics of this breed?
What are your expectations and goals for the puppy?
Do you own or rent your home? If renting, do you have permission from your landlord to have a dog?
How many hours per day will the puppy be left alone?
What is your daily routine like? How much time can you dedicate to exercising, training, and caring for the puppy?
Do you have any plans for traveling or major life changes that could affect your ability to care for the puppy?
Are all members of your household on board with getting a puppy?
Are you willing to commit to the puppy’s lifelong care, including veterinary expenses, grooming, training, and daily needs?
