New Dog Consultation
Consultation & Benefits
New Dog Consultations are structured to assist families in choosing the right fit of their new puppy or dog to their lifestyle.
Are you thinking about adding a new puppy or dog to your family?
Is this your first time choosing your new best friend? Are you a new dog owner to be?
Choosing a new best doggy pal should be done carefully and with research first before jumping in with both feet due to the "cute" factor!
Keep in mind, depending on the breed, dogs can easily live upwards of 15 years. When choosing your puppy or dog it is so very important to evaluate your lifestyle and needs "realistically" before making a final decision. As hard as it can seem at the time, it is best to think with your head first, then your heart. This can save heartache and money for you, and also help insure your new friend will stay with you for many years, versus ending up in a Shelter.
A New Dog Consultation gives us the opportunity to sit down with you and your family to look at your home (inside and out), talk about your lifestyle and daily routines, discuss what your goals are for your new puppy/dog. This fact finding appointment helps us direct you towards what age range, breed options (mixed &/or pure), discuss shelter/rescue puppy/dog and breeder puppy/dog, and more. By seeing your home first hand we can help you make a shopping list of what you will need to prepare your home inside and out and a to do list before you get your friend home to make the transition as easy as possible.
Save potential heartache, by taking the time to research carefully what puppy or dog is right for your family. Learn what to look for and what to avoid when searching for your new best friend.
