Prepare for your arrival
You have to plan the arrival of your puppy, if you are not available this indicates that it is not the right time to buy a new companion. A new pet always involves a lot of extra care and attention for the first few months in a new home. You must be willing to work on basic training to prevent your child from developing a bad habit at home. A puppy likes to play, if he is alone, he will have fun with everything he can find, telephone wire, remote control, plant, toy, plastic… and moreover he would risk being injured. If you are buying an adult dog you should understand that again he will need to be supervised to correct bad behavior and reward good ones that again will prevent accidents in their new environment. When there are other dogs in the house, you must give them enough time to tame, you must not intervene but be ready if it ever gets out of hand. Puppies know very well how to be accepted on the other hand, an adult dog that is a little grumbling can hurt the young. There are a number of things to consider before you bring home a puppy. It is important to decide if your lifestyle, family, children, and other pets are suited to the personality of the breed.
