congragualtions to you on your new puppy.the items you'll need for your puppy are a good vet(i feel that it is important to like your vet),a good sturdy crate, collar , leash , food bowl , water bowl ,lots of love and patience for your new puppy.make sure you get your puppy to the vet asap for a check up once you get your puppy.
Not only the contract, but WOW look at the puppy list for breeds avaliable. I would really suggest looking into finding a puppy through an individual breeder so you can have full knowledge of the genetic health of its ancestors. The supplies listed above should be suitable. Find tough toys like KONGS and be sure to puppy proof your home. I have seen labs in the vet for swallowing crazy things. Make sure your yard and home are free from things that the puppy could possibly chew up and swallow. I would avoid raw hide and pig ears. There are better alternatives. Also pick up a puppy training guide to assist you in training, socializing, and basic pet manners. GOOD LUCK!
i read their contract and guarantee and i would strongly suggest not going with only seeing one of their approved vets. it's just fishy that they only want you to see one of their vets. i'd find a vet near you that you like. that vet may be more objective about things wrong with the puppy.
ohh just another thought i would find a good vet for the health problems with your lab . i can get any breed of puppy in a little as a week ? seems strange if it was me i would run the other way and if you dont get the akc papers on your puppy after 6 months they aren't responsible ,as a said good luck with your puppy. there pups come from comercial breeders yikes?
This person asked what she needed for her new puppy which she'll be recieving a couple of days,not any responses on where she got her puppy from.Not like yikes look where you bought your puppy.What happened to congagulations on getting your new puppy.Really what happened to being corgiel. I would never be like that to some one.
ok what she is going to need is a very good vet . take a peek at the gaurantee that they give . something doesnt sound right and the pups they have shown would make me run for the door ....................................... and the second thing she will need are kong toys and puppy food im sure they will give her the inf she needs and yikes again ...............................
Good Luck with your new puppy. May you have all the patients in the world. I have an eight week old pup myself. Have you decided on a name? The best toy I have found is a puppy kong, with pb filling. My pup loves it. :}
I agree with deb. That puppy likley is from a puppy mill if you can I would cancel your order and get it from a certified breeder. Or you could ask for some info on where the puppy comes from dachshund luvr
yep, just trying to save her some heartache in the long run with the lab pup . to me pet stores like that are questionable ? thered flag goes up with me better off with a private breeder then a pet store pup .
WEll Congrats to you new addition.. Just remember puppies are like babies. they need lots of love and patience.. But crate. toys. two bowls for water and food. and just lots and lots of love. if you choose to keep the puppy in the bathroom or a room alone take a clock that either makes a ticking sound or something that plays music to keep your puppy hearing something... But you will know what to do when you bring the puppy home .. it comes to ya.. they will be scared at first and potty a couple of times but like i said patience is what you need. good luck
