Whatever dog breed you choose, the puppy should be cared for, progressively educated and well balanced… in such a way that she or he can adapt to any new given environment.

The choice of breed should never be based on purely aesthetical criteria. There is nothing “snobbish” about a pure bred dog, just an animal that represents a well defined breed standard.

The quality of a dog is necessary, not to own a champion and make him or her the exhibit of your neighborhood but for health reasons, physical hygiene and what is for me the most important a dog which is sound psychologically.

Regarding pedigrees, it is all too easy to be impressed by a certificate, line of champions, best in show etc… I often like to compare these certificates with Salvador Dali’s work. 8000 blank sheets of paper were signed before he passed away, these blanks now find themselves in auctions all over the world. What was printed, painted on them after is of no value but people pay high prices for a signature! A pedigree is the same. It is not enough to guide your selection of a good puppy entirely on a piece of paper of which you are not 100% convinced of its value.

Do you know what is yours?

There are between 3-400 recognised breeds of dog that are divided up into different categories according to countries & clubs .

Their specific profiles correspond to certain purposes which are adapted to different lifestyles. Do you know what is yours?

From the tiniest Chihuahua to the most imposing Great Dane, the genetic links to its predatory ancestors remain intact.

Early life

The dog like most mammals is born dependent on its parents, requiring intensive care in a well structural environment in order to complete its development .

The existence of an exchange of information between mother and foetus are important factors in the development of the future puppy.

  • 1 to 21 days > The puppy is with the mother and his littermates in a warm and protected environment.
  • 21 to 28 days > Eyes open, hearing develops and the puppy becomes more aware of the world outside the nest (den). Interaction with his littermates is a vital element of a healthy education. This is how they learn limits by playing amongst themselves. Biting each other and their mother is part of play but has essential educational importance as this is how a puppy learns to inhibit unnecessary biting, bullying……to socialize !

    Indeed puppies that are separated too early from this environment develop serious character problems, are often unpredictable, snappy and certainly UNSAFE TO BE LEFT WITH CHILDREN.

    The omission of an active socialization program in a puppy’s early life can in some cases mean the difference between the life and death of that dog. Several million dogs are euthanised each year due to behavioral problems. Most of these problems are preventable.

Adolescence

A dog enters adolescence around the age of 5 months. This is the most challenging period and will last until the dog becomes adult between the age of 2-3 years depending on the breed and also the individual . During this period excersise is very important as well as developing a constant routine (training).

THIS IS ALSO THE TIME WHEN MOST DOGS ARE ABANDONED BY THEIR OWNERS DUE TO INCOMPATIBILITY OR BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS. PLEASE NEVER BUY A PUPPY ON IMPULSE OR JUST OUT OF PITY !

Your generosity could quickly turn into a stressful situation, a real nightmare for both the dog and your family.

A lifestyle…

After considering all these facts about a puppy and adolescent dog’s life, it is easy to understand , apprehend the importance of CHOOSING A BREED THAT CORRESPONDS TO A PARTICULAR LIFESTYLE.

But also never forget that lots of charming dogs are in shelters not because they were bad but misunderstood or unadapted.
