Author admin    Category Labradoodle, Puppies     Tags

Puppies are adorable and could be a great companion, that’s why a lot of people love them. But actually not all of these puppy lovers have their own puppies. That’s because having a puppy takes a lot of responsibilities that not everyone is ready for. So, if you’re thinking about having a puppy, it’s best for you to first consider the pros and cons before you go to one of the Humane Society’s animal shelters to get a puppy.

Pros

1. Whatever the breed of your puppy, be it a Cockapoo, Staffordshire Bull Terrier or Pugs, puppies are cute, adorable and playful, these are definitely a plus.

2. Everyone loves puppies. You won’t believe how many new people you will meet because of your Yorkshire Terrier or Cocker Spaniel puppy. Besides, they could easily attract the ladies.

3. Most dogs only live for 10+ years, so having a puppy means you will spend a longer time with your pet.

4. You can create a strong bond from the early age.

5. You have more time to train your pet. It’s easier to shape a dogs behavior when he’s still at a young age.

Cons

1. You have to be extra patient with puppies, because they’re like babies who often do things that they’re not supposed to.

2. Indoor training could be difficult and quite stressful, you will be doing a lot of cleaning in the beginning.

3. It could be expensive. Puppy food, treatments, toys, and beddings are not cheap.

4. Get ready to find some holes on your furniture or shoes.

5. You should always spare your time for your French Bulldog puppy to train him, give him exercise and play. Puppies have a lot of energy and they will go crazy if you don’t keep them busy with positive activities.

So do you think you’re ready for that kind of responsibility? If you do, then it’s time to go to the shelter and take that Dachshund or Labradoodle puppy home.

Once you have found some potential breeders, you can call them one by one to find out more about their business and the Labradoodle they sell.

Make sure the breeder is knowledgeable about all aspects of the Labradoodle breed and can give convincing answers to all your questions about rearing the Labradoodle puppies. Ask them whether they follow the rules and regulations also the code of ethics for breeding puppies.

A good breeder will provide a healthy Labradoodle puppy, but there’s no guarantee that there won’t be any health issue in the future. However, you can reduce the risk by purchasing the Labradoodle from a breeder that follows strict healthy procedures, that include scheduled vaccinations and making sure that the breed is pure. Make sure that the breeder can show documents that can back up the bloodlines, vaccinations and health checks of the puppy.

Some good breeders even have trained their puppies early, which will be very helpful for you. They familiarize their puppies with the outside environment including the smells and sounds.
