Puppy & Breed Selection

Selecting a Puppy


Dogs are our best friends, companions, protectors & for some they are much like as our kids too. Everyone (dog or animal lovers) wants to bring a pup into their home for various purposes. Different people have different wishes with their dogs. Some just want a nice calm family pet ,some want a protector  for guarding purpose ,some are for conformation shows and other dog sports and some are to start up for dog breeding businesses.


But when it comes to buying a puppy no one thinks how important it is to select a proper breed or a puppy which suits the purpose. Those who are professional responsible breeders or people who are attached with dog sports & dog businesses for long  time , they seem to be good with this but the new dog owners or handlers or many pet parents should sit back & think twice before they bring a puppy into their home with that I mean,  they should bring a breed as per their physical ability ,as per the time they could spend with the pup(not just until the adulthood of the dog) and also their financial soundness. If you are have a dog then it has a maintenance cost like feeding (species appropriate diet), grooming, medications, vaccinations and many more. When I talk about the timing, each pups and dogs need to be exercised as per their age and breed. They also need long walks and sometimes jog (after a certain age) at least twice a day.


In my dog training career I have seen so many pet parents have had to give up on their young or adult dogs just because they are either not able to manage their dogs for their physical inability (age factor or energy level) or they do not have the time to look after the dog or sometimes they just cannot afford the expenses any more, few of them cite the reason that the dogs were becoming aggressive. There are a lot of reasons and if I start talking about them all, it will take me to write an entire bookJ .  Few of them were whom where I had just started to train for a week or two. I was asked to find a new home or shelter for those young or adult dogs. It saddens me when I still see something like this, can’t explain in words...Its not that they are not good people and they don’t love their dogs. It is something that their environment and situations made them to take up this hard decision in their lives. With that said I would also like to say, these incidents could not have happened if they (dog owners) were concerned while they choose the particular breed /puppy to bring home. All those bitter experiences gave me the idea to make this training forum for all who want to educate themselves for better understanding of their four legged loved ones. I have added the detailed descriptions in training categories. But in this place I would only talk about the puppy/breed selection.



Selecting a Puppy


·         Most people buy a puppy around or before 4 weeks of age which is a BIG mistake they do. A responsible and certified breeder would never do something like this; they would not sell a puppy until it’s at least 8 weeks old. After the litter born it takes 15 to 20 days for the puppies for all their important senses like nose, ear & eyes to be properly working; then the socialization period starts among the littermates and with mother from 21 days to 50 or 55 days. No one should under estimate this social ritual period in pups as this is the time when each pup learns how to react with pack members and to respect a pack leader(generally the mother).They learn how hard or soft to play , when to stop fighting or biting each other and many more.


So each pup should stay with its mother and litter mates until they are 7 or 8 weeks old.


·         If you want to buy a puppy and your parents are going to look after it (assuming you are busy with your job or profession), buy a small breed dog. The reason is if you go for a larger dog breed just because you love a particular breed, your aged parents can’t handle this puppy when it will be 1.5 or 2 years old around 30 to 40 kg in weight. Large breeds need physical exercise lot more than small breed dogs and I don’t think you or your parents can deal with this either for lack of timing or for lack physical energy.


·         If you are a female and cannot handle larger breed adult dogs with that I mean in all possible environments then you should not buy one rather go for a small breed puppy.


The beauty of buying a small breed is that even after they grow up they will as cute as they were when they are a puppy.


·         If you have a big family with many kids and the adult male members of the family are busy with their job or other professions you should go for a small breed, makes it easy to mange for you.


·         If you are a house wife or a strong-willed female person and you think you can manage and give the time required to a large breed dog (the breed you are fascinated by) then I will suggest you to buy a female pup instead of a male. Female dogs tend to be much less aggressive and dominant than their male counterparts.


·         Any one who is fond of only the large breed dogs and wants just a house pet then I suggest to go for female pups always.


·         People who dream to take their dog to any competition, agility or other bite sports, male puppies should be a priority for them with that saying female dogs also do very nice in any competitions but males are best choice although my own house dogs are both females but I have taken my elder one (Jolly) to the obedience show and she did an outstanding job. So your handling skills are one of the most important parts for a competition dog.


·         If you want to be involved in a dog breeding business then you should buy both a male & a female(from a good pedigree and a different bloodline) adult or puppy or you may buy only one either male or female and later in the breeding season contact a well known and experienced breeder for breeding.


·         When you buy puppy for a house pet just check a couple of things while you are going to choose the pup from entire litter. All puppies should be healthy and playful. Each pup should be confident while taken away from the litter alone. The puppy should follow you or your feet while you are moving around. If you see a puppy is afraid to see strangers or the puppy went to a nook or corner and sat alone (kind of being afraid) and not coming close to you even when called then you should skip that puppy.


·         If you are interested to buy a puppy for sports purpose then it has a big puppy testing procedure which is beyond the chance to discuss here. If any one of you is interested  to know more then send your queries in click me option given below
