My Puppy: An Owner's Guide

Puppies are a joy to behold, but with that joy comes responsibility. Whether you have a pedigree or a mixed breed, the same general rules apply when caring for your pet. In this program experts take you through all the necessary steps to ensure that your puppy grows up to become a healthy, well behaved and much loved addition to your family. Like people, all puppies have different personalities and no two are exactly the same. For this reason, owners of new puppies or dogs will have to take time to get to know them, to build trust and to discover what actually motivates them. If you have a mixed breed puppy, you should try to think about what possible breeds of dog are in their background. This might give you clues as to what your puppy will be good at, and some of the problems that might occur in the future. If your puppy has some working dog background, you'll need to decide if you can provide the stimulation and attention it'll require. It's a common misconception that clever breeds need less training, so think carefully when choosing a puppy. There's also a belief that mixed breed puppies are always easier, and have less problems than pedigree puppies, but the reality depends on what breeds have come together in your puppy, what its early months were like and how much training it's had. Your puppy will show features of the breeds that have made it, and you need to be able to provide for all its needs. Whether your mixed breed puppy is large or small he will need training from an early age. Be honest with yourself about your own situation, and choose a puppy to match your lifestyle. 07/10DE Closed-Captioned IJSCA 40 min.
