Whenever you are looking at getting a pup–or dog–you are actually looking to make a lifelong commitment. With that in mind, like I explained in a previous post, think about what you want, why and make a list. Then do some research. Browse online, in books, ask folks that own a specific breed you may be considering. You can send me any questions you have as well!
Play time can be so much more than just fun and something to occupy or tire out your dog. The very same moves, and toys, that you use playing with them can be implemented in their training. There are some specific play methods that also develop your relationship deeper and build focus in your pup. These are even good ways for correcting dog behavior.
No matter what breed, rescue, age, or purpose for your new four-legged companion, dogs thrive on what is fun for them. It keeps them motivated, focused and makes for an all-round healthy pup and pack. Having fun with them also keeps you–the pack leader–motivated, reduces stress, and keeps the relationship quite rewarding.
We all have those accidents–or, I mean our pups do! And those accidents, whether they knock over something spillable, or don’t make it outside for their potty break, there always come questions of what to do about stains. Or maybe your pack is so large your laundry overflows? And what is safe for our beloved fur balls?
Most people that obtain a pup, as I have observed for years, do not dig too deep (if at all) to gain an understanding of what they are getting into. If more people put enough thought and at least a little research into this process, there would be fewer throwaways and more content household packs.
That is what’s different about Pup Stop. I hold no claim to being a pro, an expert, or any such thing. I am here to simply share with you my experiences in many facets of cohabiting with, training, and even searching for that “right” pup. There will even be posts on some of the best and safe products I have found to remove stains your new pup made, as well as kitchen cupboard formulas for getting the stink out of a skunked dog, and more.
Pup Stop was created to help weed out senseless (often exploitative) products, activities and services–much of which can be quite costly, both financially and otherwise. We hope to help folks get fast, accurate answers to their questions and needs for their furry companions, that are fairly easy to implement and usually fun for both the two- and four-legged. At Pup Stop we will share who we are, what brought us here, where we aim to be, as well as the step-by-step journey to get us there.
