If you've never
had a dog before, or you've had a bad experience with a dog you bought
people think that all dogs are more or less the same...
of all, what is a dog really? Well, a puppy is one thing. It's cute,
sweet and soft. Okay, it pees on the floor and steps in the waterbowl, but you
can survive that for a couple of weeks, right? But the small cute puppy quickly –
actually very quickly – becomes a big puppy. And big puppies can still pee on
the floor and step in the waterbowl if they haven't learned what's right - in the
right way! Big puppies can also chew on the sofa, tip over the plants, dig in
the garden and easy as pie eat half the bookshelf (including the Blu-ray and CD
collection). Dogs who do things like that are not stupid dogs, they are not
odd dogs, and neither are they sick or maladjusted dogs – they are just dogs!
any understanding of this fact, they however very easily will become
maladjusted. It's obvious that the dog is not supposed to eat the brand new
cell-phone 3. time in a row, but the dog doesn't know any better. It's not from
birth ”programmed” to know what it's allowed to do and what not to do.
That's what you have to teach it when you're a dogowner. And it has to be taught
in a way that's right for the dog if it's meant to be beneficial – both to
you and to the dog.
a big job.It demands patience, time and willpower.
You have to be aware
of the fact, that there are very big differences between the
different breeds. If you are an active long-distance jogger who likes fresh air and having your
dog running beside you for miles and miles, you shouldn't choose an English
Bulldog. If you are a real take-it-easy-person with t.v. and coffee every day
then it would be tormenting (both to you and to the dog) if you bought a Boxer.
It's your responsibility that you're in advance acquainted with your new dogs
characteristics and needs. Because the dog can't defend itself, or explain to
you why it behaves differently than what you had in mind… It's a total
misunderstanding to believe, that a dog – no matter which breed – will
adjust to its owner and to its surroundings after a while, if it's just
loved, fed right and scratched behind the ear a couple of times a day. You
have to choose the breed that fits you and your family. Then you'll have the
right foundation for having the right dog.
important thing you have to know is where the dog came from. Because it's not
without importance whether the dog is bought in a kennel, where the dogs live in
big cages all day, if it's bought in a petshop/puppy-mill or if it's bought from
a "livingroom-breeder". If the dog is supposed to become a family-dog
or a pet for you, it is of the utmost importance that it has had the right
social upbringing. Visit the breeders that have the wanted breed. Look at the
dogs and talk to them. If the dogs seems scared or angry, don't buy a dog from that
place. You cannot fix a ”ruined” dog (it's often a big challenge to educated
dogpsychologists and behaviourtherapists). Don't buy the dog out of pity. It
doesn't change anything for the better! Remember, that with your payment for the dog you
continuous breeding at that place! Ask the breeder whatever question pops up in
possible, visit several breeders. Don't be affected if a breeder
for the world... don't buy a dog impulsively!
but absolutely not least… If the price of a well-bred dog with a good
pedigree scares you, don't buy a dog at all. The price of a dog is just a small
part of what the dog will cost through its life. When you think of buying a dog,
also think of food, vet-bills, toys, damages on the house, a place to sleep in,
chewtoys, blankets, collars and lines, vaccinations, foodbowls, etc. If you can't afford to pay the price of the dog, can you really afford to
be a dogowner?
for you who considers buying or adopting a crossbred. Of course it's cheaper to
buy, but it still cost exactly the same to own.
dog is not a thing! It cannot just be bought and returned again when you don't
want to take care of it anymore.
you can avoid most mistakes with a little consideration and responsability!
Good luck to you and your new best friend…
