Do you really know what is involved in getting a puppy?

Many families with young children choose a puppy believing they're easier to train and handle than older dogs.

But this is not necessarily the case, as puppies still play very much in a 'wolf-way', meaning they use their teeth a lot and puppies' teeth are very sharp.

And of course, they chew anything in sight. More than anything, housebreaking a puppy takes tremendous structure because every two hours you have to take them out. It's tedious, tiring and you're definitely going to be sleep deprived. And guess what - kids are not going to do it. Mom and Dad are going to be stuck with it!


The age of the dogs has been estimated by veterinarians based on their general health and particularly from their teeth status. It is an informed estimate made by veterinarians and should be used only as a guide.
