Shower your pup with love this Valentine’s Day

It’s that time of year again where buying gifts is on everyone’s minds and it’s safe to say that every one of us are guilty of trying to top the last gift we bought.

We’ve seen over the years that people have a great interest in purchasing a pup as a present especially around this time of year. As such, we feel it’s important to have a clear message to those thinking of buying a puppy this Christmas time.

A puppy is a huge commitment and it requires all of the love and dedication as that of a human baby would. Puppies need a warm bed, regular feeds, vaccinations and regular walks to keep them fit and healthy and in order for them to grow in to a strong, happy and healthy dog.

Don’t get us wrong, as much as owning a puppy is a commitment, a puppy does bring joy and love in to peoples life’s but a puppy is for life and not just for that one celebration of the year.

So when you’re thinking of adding a new addition to your family, whether a present for a child or one for yourself, ask yourself:

  • Do I have the time to spend to take care of a puppy, to feed it, walk it and house train it?
  • Am I financially able to support another mouth in my household?
  • Do I have a large enough space to keep my ever-growing pup?
  • Am I really ready to look after a young pup that’s relying on me to take care of it?

If you’ve answered no to any of these questions, we would recommend you take some time to really think about whether you’re ready to purchase a pup.

If you’ve thought long and hard and said yes to all the questions however, we would be more than happy to answer any other questions in regards to purchasing a puppy, If you would like advice about which breed is right for you, whether that be a pedigree or a cross breed, get in touch with us and give us a call today for a chat on 07779 956076 | 01282 694461 or pop in and see us, we’re open every day.

Remember, a puppy is for life and not just for Christmas!
