Buying a Puppy
Some dogs need more time than others do, but every dog requires time for daily interaction beyond just meeting its basic needs. Consider your lifestyle and personality when deciding if a dog would fit into the picture.
Why do you want a dog?
How active and busy are you?
What do you do with the dog when you travel
or are on vacation?
Do you have young children?
Do you have a fenced garden?
How big is it?
How long at a time will the dog be alone in the home?
Does anyone have allergies? (Easier to find this out visiting someone else’s dog first)
Would you have the time to start with an untrained puppy/would you be willing to re-train an older dog?
What kind of fur and how much grooming/shedding are involved?
What size would fit in?
Purebred? Mixed? Male? Female? Large? Small?
Puppies and adult dogs have daily needs. The basics are shelter, food and water, grooming, health care, training, exercise and social interaction. The earlier in life you start teaching a pup what is expected of it the better, but the more it has to learn. With an older dog, there may be some bad habits they’ll have to ‘unlearn’. Early social experiences set the tone for a dog’s development into a dependable companion or a destructive nuisance.
Battersea Dogs Home is devoted to finding dogs loving and permanent new homes.
A dedicated team interviews everyone who wants to offer a home to a dog and their unique computer matching system helps them find the perfect match.
The average stay for a dog at Battersea Dogs Home is 23 days, but some dogs end up staying a bit longer through no fault of their own. Sometimes a dog needs an extra-special home, with experience of their breed, temperament, or they may be unsuitable with children or other animals.
Whatever the reason, the dedicated staff here at the Dogs Home take care of them until the right owner comes along.
