Some common misconceptions.
1) Puppies should not be brought home until 8 weeks of age.
FALSE. providing that they have been properly weaned, pups will do fine at 6 weeks of age. research shows that these pups may form an even stronger bond with their new family
2) You should not smack a dog
FALSE. when a puppy bites, it is a good idea to bite them back. This shows that you are the leader of the pack. Smacking a puppy is similar to a punishment that the mother would do.
3) Dogs like coming inside
FALSE. dogs prefer outside, this is there natural environment. you will find that in summer, a pup will prefer to sleep on the cool grass rather than the pretty bed that you pad 0 for .
4) It s better to buy a pup from a registered breeder who will ensure healthy pups with good temperment
FALSE. temperment is a learned ability. Research shows that the vast majority (were talking 99.8%) of pups from non registered breeders turn out just fine and mostly outlive pups from "professional breeders" who are usually there to make a lot of money, despite what they claim.Dont lie to me if you are getting 00 a pup and tell me you dont make money.
4) Dogs are like children
FALSE. dogs are dogs.
