Is a puppy right for me? Right now? Please read on before making your life changing decision...
We all love cute little puppies. We adore them. We all want one, or two or more. Now, there are 9 million dogs in the UK and logically that says that for the most part, bringing a puppy or dog into our homes works out well. However, many many times things go wrong. It's likely that we don't hear of these stories because usually, there's some bad or very difficult news there. That realisation that we just shouldn't have got a puppy right now. But, we can't turn back the clock. And no matter what the outcome, keeping the puppy or rehoming it, we'll be guilt stricken and suffer huge emotional pain when we start to think about how to rectify this life mistake.
Being a behaviourist is a tough life choice. We see much more of the difficult situations in life than the times when everything works well. Sadly that means that I see so many situations where the puppy choice has just been wrong. I do my absolute best to help of course, but sometimes, rehoming is the best choice.
So, please, STOP! and really think hard before going out and spending hard earned cash on that cute ball of fur.
A quick phone call will help you to evaluate your circumstances and help you to find the right type of dog or puppy to bring into your life right now - or not! It only costs £15. A small investment to help you make the right puppy decisions.
Please pay £15 here or just call now.
Of course, puppies can revitalise our lives. Perhaps we've been going through a rough patch and we need to have something to care for. But, please just stop for a moment and consider perhaps whether an older rescue dog may be the right decision or perhaps whether there is some other form of support we can look to.
Some questions and answer here for free.
Anyway, these are just a few thoughts for now.
Oh, and if you go to a puppy home and are appalled by how the puppy is being raised, then walk away. Please do not give these breeders any money. Go home and phone the SSPCA / RSPCA. Please, don't help to perpetuate bad breeding.
