If you are a parent, then you know all about it. From the moment the child is born, you’ll know just how challenging the entire experience has been. Preparing yourself for a more sedate life of early retirement, relieved to have seen your child successfully through college and onto his first meaningful occupation, even feathering his nest in the process, your parental instincts have not quite left you.
This time though, you are thinking more along the lines of acquiring one of those fuzzy, furry little ones on four legs, legendary for being recognized as man’s best friend. They say it’s a good idea to acquire the friend from the youngest age possible. This is an opportunity to properly wean the creature, get to know it better as a pal and even groom and discipline it in accordance with your house rules.
All good and well, you think to yourself, as you grab the car keys to your SUV, ready to nip off down to the nearest pet store or animal shelter. But, oh no, not quite so fast ‘young man’. Now is not the time to be complacent. Do not for a moment think that because you are worldly-wise and experienced, handling a young pup is going to be a piece of cake. Do your right and responsible duty, a clever thing actually, and register yourself and your little puppy for puppy classes toronto-wise, country-wise or otherwise.
Maybe you’re still living in the city. Maybe you’re preparing for retirement life out in the country. Or maybe you’re looking for something smaller but still with the yard space, for the little one, you know. Either way, you still need to be best prepared. Bringing up puppy the right way is hard work indeed.
