Buying Puppies Online
All Puppies are Cute...How Do I Choose?
There are a lot of things to keep in mind as you start your search for that perfect companion. Have you decided on a small, medium, or large dog? A small dog might seem perfect for someone living in apartment or a small home, but may not be the best fit for someone who has small children or multiple animals. A medium or large breed dog may work better in those cases. Whatever you decide, remember that a puppy is a lifelong commitment.
Can a Puppy Be Shipped?
It may be quite likely that a puppy can not be picked up in person. Air shipping has become quite common and the restrictions and requirements for that are very strict so that all parties involved, (Buyer, Seller, and Puppy), can have a positive and stress-free experience. Most breeders and sellers of puppies will offer information on pet shipping. All shipping and/or transportation arrangements will be completely between the Buyer and the Seller. If you are a Buyer, please take advantage of all the information that is provided to you from the Seller pertaining to safe pet shipping.
Bringing Home Your New Puppy
How do I Prepare for My New Puppy?
It's a really good idea to find a good book(s) or DVD(s) to learn about your breed of puppy before bringing it home. This information can be priceless when it comes to providing a happy and healthy home for him/her. Find out everything you can about the right food for your particular breed of puppy and how often they should be fed. You will need some accessories like a collar, leash, puppy toys, a good selection of grooming tools, and a crate or pen to aid in housetraining. These are just a few of the things to get ahead of time so that you are prepared for your puppy's arrival.
How do I Welcome My New Puppy Into My Home?
Puppies need their own space, so providing them with a comfortable bed and a quiet place to sleep is very important. They should also have their own food and water dishes along with some safe puppy toys. All puppies will chew and this is a natural phase of all puppy development. Providing them with something that satisfies that urge to chew will hopefully keep them away from your shoes!
Choose a veterinarian that you will be bringing your puppy to for health exams and vaccinations. This will be a place that your puppy will visit soon after its arrival, so you may want to go ahead of time to meet the veterinarian and be sure you have made the right choice for both of you.
The proper development and behavior of your new puppy is up to you. Training and socializing is needed to ensure that your new puppy will be a joy to be around for many years to come.
What About My New Puppys' Sleep Requirements?
Puppies are a lot like human babies - they play hard, and they need to sleep hard too. Though veterinarians still don't know exactly how puppy brains develop, they know that sleeping, (as well as playing), is very important to the development process. While your pup is conked out on the carpet, his brain is busy maturing and building new neural connections.
Puppies need as much sleep as they can get. As long as he's eating and drinking like he usually does, and he's active and playful when he's awake, his sleep shouldn't be a problem. Over time he'll adjust to your schedule, and he'll probably learn to sleep when you sleep at night, and nap whenever he feels like it during the day,(one of the advantages of a dog's life!). His body will do a pretty good job of getting him the sleep he needs, as long as it isn't interfered with. So if you see your puppy napping, don't wake him up to play. Let him sleep, unless you need to wake him to keep him on his feeding or elimination schedule.
If you're worried that your puppy's sleeping - or any aspect of his behavior - isn't normal, or if his behavior changes suddenly or dramatically, make an appointment with your veterinarian to have your pup checked out.
