Cover of Puppies
Having a puppy can be a very rewarding experience, but before embarking on such a commitment, there are some things to be taken into consideration to ensure he doesn’t end up at the local rescue centre. Let’s get the negatives over first.
1. BE PREPARED TO HOUSE TRAIN THEM , AND EXPECT SOME ACCIDENTS IN THE BEGINNING, JUST LIKE A BABY, THEY NEED TO LEARN HOW TO CONTROL THEIR BODIES.
2. THEY MAY GET YOU UP IN THE NIGHT JUST AFTER THEY LEAVE THEIR FAMILY, IT IS A DAUNTING EXPERIENCE
3. THEY MAY CHEW AND DESTROY THINGS IN THE HOUSE WHILST THEY ARE TEETHING
P. YOU CANNOT GO OUT AND LEAVE THEM FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME
If you have your puppy from an early age, say about eight weeks, you will experience his growing, and developing, the cute and cuddly stage is over with very quickly. He will remember being with you from an early age, will trust and look up to you, as his hero. You will follow each milestone with him, house training, walking on the lead, learning manners, and all the things that make a dog an acceptable member of your family, and this will create a bond that will be there for a lifetime
I have a lovely golden retriever, who is now 5 years old, I had him from seven weeks old, and he still is a big baby. His worse trait is digging up the garden, but we have styled it so he can’t reach the lawn, he has his own area. Sometimes you have to do things like that for your own peace of mind, because after all, they are only a dog, and what is fun to him, is not always to us.
If you get a puppy, enjoy him whilst he is young, like children, they soon grow up.
