Are you a homebody or an on-the-go type of person? It is important to take a look at your lifestyle and determine if you truly have the time needed to raise a puppy. If your social or work schedule will keep you from devoting the time to take care of your little pup, you may want to consider a trained adult dog. This may help you avoid many stressful situations, including those little puppy surprises carefully left on your rug. Remember accidents do happen and we have found some cleaning tips to help keep your rugs and puppies happy.
Your Dog’s Personality
An adult dog’s personality is more developed and closer to what you can expect as a member of your family. Keep in mind, some behaviors that may have been established with a previous owner, good and bad, may be harder to change. So consider adopting an adult with a personality that fits your family or take home a pup and start molding them from day one to become the perfect match.
