The PDSA and Kennel Club said there has been a 393% demand for puppies since lock down fortunately all these cuties have homes already and are very loved.
The Daily Mail refer to some Breeders as “Greeders” hiking their price sometimes tripling it and selling to the highest bidder which is gazumping and if you are on the end of it how hurtful and so very disappointing not to receive the beautiful puppy you may have already chosen and paid a deposit on.
Chosing a new puppy to fit in with your lifestyle is critical so that you can adjust to the new arrival and know how often and how long he will need walks and feeding especially in the early months. Do you need to consider allergies in the family? Have you got the room for a large breed or would a medium sized breed fit more comfortably in your house? Temperament is very important especially where children are concerned, a puppy should not leave Mummy till at least 8 weeks old they learn so much from their Brothers and Sisters and Mummy can discipline too so they learn quickly. This will help you to settle them down when they first arrive and also toilet train, it is very much like having a baby, lots of cuddles and plenty of sleep!
Returning to work considering a reliable dog walker who can call in twice a day to feed and let out in the garden until your puppy has had the appropriate injections and can go out for a short would help take away any anxiety about leaving your puppy whilst at work. Puppies usually start walking for 15 mins then go up to 30 mins until around 6 months old when they are able to cope with an hours’ walk.
