Puppy care

Puppies can make incredibly good pets but they have very specific needs. Before you buy a puppy you need to be sure you have the space, time and money needed to raise a happy, healthy dog.

Puppies can live up to 15 years or more‚ that is a huge commitment. You need to make sure you are willing and able to pay for veterinary bills, food, toys and enrichment throughout your dog's lifetime. Think about whether you'd like to buy a pedigree puppy from a trusted breeder, or rehome a rescue dog.
