    Puppies for sale: How to choose a dog breed

    Articlegeneral dog adviceTuesday 14 February 2012

    If you have decided that you definitely want a dog, there are lots of different dog breeds to choose from and all of them are different. To be able to care for any puppies for sale and provide them with a good home throughout their lives, you need to research different dog breeds and make sure you choose puppies for sale that are suitable for you. Read on to find out how to choose the right puppies for sale.

    Choosing Dog Breeds

    • There are lots of different dog breeds and all of them are different. It is important to remember that it is not the dog’s fault if you buy puppies for sale and it turns out you cannot look after them. When choosing from dog breeds, the first thing to consider is what sort of dog you want. An active dog such as a Golden Retriever will need lots of space, exercise and food. Something like a Golden retriever or a Labrador retriever takes lots of time to look after. Something smaller like a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is much happier living in a smaller house and going on shorter walks.
    • When considering dog breeds, you also have to consider temperament before you go and buy puppies for sale. The two most popular family dogs are the Labrador Retriever and the Golden Retriever, this is primarily down to their exceptionally good temperament. Although these dog breeds need socialising and training from an early age, they don’t require as much time and effort as something like a Rottweiler which can be an excellent family dog but needs lots of training to ensure they don’t get aggressive and over protective.
    • What you want from your dog should be an important decision when buying puppies for sale. Do you want an active dog? A Labrador Retriever is very active and loves going for runs and would suit somebody who is active themselves. If you want a lap dog, something like a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is one of the best lap dog breeds, alongside pug dogs for sale. A dog like a German Shepherd or a Doberman are very loyal and friendly to their owner which makes them good guard dogs.
    • You need to consider how much money you can spend on the dog, both initially and throughout its life. If you feel you may not be able to afford it, you should not be looking for puppies for sale but remember that a Great Dane for sale will cost a lot to buy and a lot more to feed than something like a Jack Russell will.
    • Regardless of which of the dog breeds you choose, you can search for a wide range of puppies for sale on Dogs and Puppies. You will need certain dog accessories with all dog breeds such as dog beds, collars, leads and dog toys. You can search for a wide range of dog accessories for sale on Dogs and Puppies.
