Puppies are all cute, some more than others, but remember that they will mature and may not look the same. Get to know what your selected breed looks like as an adult and also it's needs as an adult. Puppies require a lot of attention, training, nutrition, health care and a loving environment to become and remain a well adjusted dog as an adult. Dogs are basically followers and run in packs, you must be your dog's pack leader in order for your dog to live a happy life. If you do not become your dog’s Pack Leader, the dog will be the Pack Leader and behavioral problems will result. Dogs are routine-orientated animals. If their routine abruptly changes, problems may result and you must recognize and deal with those. Dogs are not impressed by wealth and luxury, but crave the simpler things in life. A spacious, roomy, luxurious home environment is still a jail to a dog that is never let out to explore new smells and people. A daily walk, socialization, discipline, a purpose and exposure to new environments with family and other people is a must. Dogs require mental stimulation and challenges to lead a balanced life.A dog will provide you with unconditional love, friendship and devotion and in some cases, will lay down its life for you. Can you commit to being your dog's best friend for life?
