Choosing the Right Labrador Puppy

 

Choosing the Right Labrador Puppy

There are various things to consider before buying a Labrador. Here are the main points you may want to think about before making the final decision as of whether or not you are ready to take the plunge and bear the responsibility of bringing a Labrador into your life, as your family member.

Do You Have The Right Amount Of Space For A Large Dog?

Okay, Labrador may not really be ‘Large’ dog breed, but yes, it is a decently sized pet. Plus, it is an utterly active breed. So, they sure need a bit of space to burn their energy and straighten up their limbs. They could be quite adjusting and, you know, understanding, if you don’t have a park of your own- it is just that the thick tail of theirs can ‘accidentally’ knock down some of your tiny décor pieces while prancing around. Baseline is, simply, you need a bit of extra room for your active pup to run around.

Do You Have Time For A Dog?

 

Labrador exercise

No, you don’t need to be at 24×7 servicefor them- and certainly not for Labrador dogs (that doesn’t mean they have any issue if you are with them 24×7). They can pretty much take care of themselves once you train them. However, you still are expected to offer a decent piece of time to them, especially in their initial and adolescence period. First, you need to derive time to train them and then, as mentioned above, Labrador puppies are quite active. You need to have time to play with them a bit and to make them do exercises. Physical activities are quite important for this breed.
You don’t need to be terrified- half an hour in morning and evening won’t be so much of demand, right? And, it need not be you yourself; if you live with your family and if some of them can, in turn, take a little time out to play with the paw-pal you bring home, it will work. However, if you or any of your family members won’t be able to take out that bit of time to take care of them, you might want to reconsider buying a pup- seriously, it won’t be fair leaving a little one alone in the house all day.
Can You Afford A Dog?
Now, you need to consider the fact that it is not just the initial buying price that is involved in owning and taking care of a puppy. There are also other costs that you sure need to think of before getting a Labrador puppy home, like their medical costs, maintenance costs etc.
While Labrador is not really a very high maintenance breed, you still need to consider an average for the pup’s food supplies, vet appointments, vaccinations and, oh sure, their happy face treats. In addition to these basics, there are food bowls, leashes, winter clothing, beds etc. Besides, if you work full time, you might want to hire someone to take him out on a walk, or for exercise and for freshening him up. Here, that is some extra bucks again.
Let us offer you some tips to minimise these expenses. The best way to cut down the medical costs is to get a medical insurance for your Labrador dog. It would take out just a small amount of your savings- once a year- and in return, you will save burning a hole in your pocket in case your pet gets unfortunate with any illness. Think twice before deciding on the cheapest insurance alternative though, since it might not really cover all medical contingencies.
Then, you can do a bit of search to find second hand or more pocket friendly dog stuff. Hey, why not check out Marshallspetzone.com and find the best quality yet budget friendly accessories and things for your pup? As stated earlier, we try to make dog care as economic and easy as possible for you.
