I recently did a training segment regarding holiday puppies. You traditionally see people wanting to adopt black cats during Halloween, white bunnies at Easter, even the big craze of Dalmatian puppies after people Watched 101 Dalmatians. Another thing that happens every year is puppies purchased at Christmas.
It is very common to see families want to welcome a new puppy into their home. The main thing to remember is this is a lifetime commitment and it is important to make it a FAMILY commitment. Children always agree to help to achieve getting the puppy, but good follow through is important to make sure they are serious. A game plan is important, training is the key and a good understanding of the breed chosen is best.
Each breed had been hardwired to do a specific task. Make sure you research their task so that you know what to do to satisfy their needs. A Labrador is a Hunter, a retriever. A Beagle loves to bay and hunt with his nose. A border collie thrives on herding cattle/sheep. A Dachshund has no fear and will crawl into the littlest space to find a rat. If you don’t know what the breed you chose does, it can cause issues in understanding how their mind operates.
Remember the proper steps for success to a smart, well balanced puppy. Step 1: Choose The breed right for you and your family. Step 2: Enroll your puppy in a training class. Step 3: Have a consistent routine with your family to ensure lifetime success.
