About Pik-A-Pup Kennel

Things to Consider Before You Buy a Puppy

You’ve got a home, a great job, and a ton of friends, yet there still seems to be something missing from your life. What could be better than coming home every day to be greeted by someone who is utterly excited to see you walk in the door? The unconditional love that a dog gives is enough to motivate people to welcome puppies into their homes. If you’re convinced that a dog is just what you need, or if you have been toying with the idea for awhile, then taking a trip to your local kennel is a next logical step. When people come to Pik-A-Pup Kennel, a long-standing dog breeder in Massachusetts, looking for new members for their families, the expert staff at Pik-A-Pup Kennel will sit down with them to get a better idea of who they are as pet owners and what type of puppy would be most suitable for their lifestyles and living situations. Although you may not have considered all of the factors that go into matching a dog with its owner before, it is about more than just pointing at the first dog that catches your eye and taking it home. After all, in addition to wanting to make customers happy, the staff at Pik-A-Pup Kennel has a responsibility to the puppies as well. The following criteria should be considered when selecting a puppy, as experts have found that discussing these topics usually results in the perfect match of a loving puppy and caring owner.

1. What is the current make-up of your family? If there are young children in the family, that will help determine the specific breed and temperament needed to interact with toddlers. Alternatively, if most of the members of your family are older and are not home most of the day, that may point to different breeds.

2. Do you have allergies? Some dogs have hair and some have fur. Fur, however, can trigger your allergies and make living in the same home as a dog that sheds uncomfortable. Understanding allergies or other medical issues is a very important factor in deciding on a breed.

3. How large is your living space? Chances are that if you are living in a one-room studio apartment, you probably do not want to bring home a new dog that will grow into the size of a Great Dane. Fit the puppy to your living situation.

While there are most likely other issues to discuss as well, these are meant to be qualifiers that help determine which puppy, based on breed and size, would best fit your lifestyle. The experienced staff at Pik-A-Pup Kennel understands that the final decision is always up to the customer and will do whatever is possible to help find the right puppy for you. As part of that process, the staff will be more than happy to let you walk around the kennel and meet with as many of the dogs as you’d like. The goal at Pik-A-Pup Kennel is to help guide customers to their ideal puppies without ever forcing a pet and owner together unnaturally. Additionally, while there are some people who will come to the kennel and leave with a puppy that very same day, others want to gather a lot of information before they make their decisions. There is no right or wrong way to go about the process of finding a puppy. Since your new puppy will become a part of your life for years to come, you should take your time and make sure you’re getting a puppy that will fit well with your family.
