Here are some things to consider in picking out the right puppy for you. Looks All of us may have certain preferences on the puppy's looks. But, bear in mind that some breeds have high maintenance costs when in comes to food, health care, and grooming. A large dog like a Saint Bernard of course, consums a lot more food than toy dogs. If your dog is short-snouted, it is more prone to respiratory problems. Puppies with long, thick, and curly furs, like Malti-Tzu puppies, need regular grooming. You should first find out if your can afford all these before considering getting a high-maintenance breed. Activity Most dogs, like Golden Retrievers, need a lot of attention and exercise. These types of active dogs tend to become impulsive when not properly exercised. If you can't walk your dog regularly, you better not choose active dog breeds. Chow Chows are a favorite among inactive dog breeds. Attention Requirement While all dogs need attention, and they all want to be with their masters all the time, there are some dogs that can cope up with solitude better than others. If you can't be with your puppy most of the time, Terriers and Siberian Huskies are good choices. They can handle isolation better than Shetland Sheepdogs. Socializing Some dog breeds, like Retrievers, like to follow their masters all the time. Others will run around everywhere when set loose and will just come back when they want to. Some dogs will always wait for your opinion before deciding on what to do. You should decide if you want your puppy to be independent or dependent on you. Where Your Puppy Will Sleep Almost all pups prefer sleeping with their masters. But there are some that can be kept in a doghouse in the backyard, or left sleeping inside the house without the fear of it destroying furniture.
