PupScouts of Hunterdon
Facebook: PupScouts of Hunterdon
Summer is here which means puppy season is upon us. It’s heartbreaking when you don’t end up with the right match. Things to consider when bringing home a new puppy:
- Does your current situation provide the time to care for and train a new puppy?
- What energy level suits your lifestyle? Whether you choose a high energy or low energy puppy, you will still need to provide
adequate mental and physical enrichment. Higher energy dogs require more time from you. Don’t go with love at first sight. You will be attracted to the look of puppies when you start your search. That’s normal. Some puppies are shy, and others are more outgoing. Make sure you select the personality that will meld with your household.
- Who is going to care for your puppy when you are going to be gone for extended periods of time? Don’t wait until you are deep into puppy predicaments before you get help. Set you and your puppy up for success by securing your spot with us as soon as you know you are
bringing your puppy home.
Our unique Puppy Concierge package allows you to start training BEFORE you bring your puppy, so you are prepared with certain information ahead of time.
