I want to tell the beginners who want to buy a dog how not to make a mistake in choosing a puppy. And so the main question for you has already been resolved, this is the choice of the breed. Next comes the question of a dog or a bitch. I would like to highlight this topic in more detail. For many years, engaged in breeding, I never cease to wonder how people buying puppies, in a year and a half, call the club and happily inform that the time has come, and we wish to untie him (her)!
Think people before you state your wishes. As a rule, the puppy you bought has never participated in exhibitions, and not that won in them, not to mention just the exterior data. From the breeder you buy a puppy of this breed, with a pedigree, as a rule, at a fairly reasonable price and are happy to inform you that you are taking the dog purely for the house. You don't need to worry about participation in exhibitions … And so on, so on, so on. And all the more strange then to hear about the alleged mating.
Golden Retriever Puppy
Consider buying a male puppy if you can provide him with the opportunity to have a regular sex life. If not, then you shouldn't untie the dog! Believe me, this will not affect the health of your pet, no matter what neighbors and acquaintances tell you, believe me, the "roof" will not go and cancer is equally susceptible to those who gave birth and not! It's just that you can make the life of your family and dog much more difficult for anyone (except you, of course) with unnecessary viscosity!
It's easy to mate, think about where you will attach the puppies later, do you have the time and money to properly feed the younger generation, if suddenly the birth does not go according to plan, can you pay for the veterinarian's services? What you need for your dog to mate regularly. I will omit the details of choosing a puppy, of course, for acquiring a dog of breeding value, you do not even buy it, but when you called the breeder for the first time, you should inform him what exactly and for what purpose you need it. If the club you turn to values its reputation, you will in fact get the most promising puppy from the litter (if there is one), but do not be surprised that, for example, at an average price for a puppy of $ 250, you will be asked to pay $ 500. the question is, how to recognize the best kennel or club?
The show class dog is worth it. The older the show puppy is, the more expensive its cost. This happens in any breed. What further awaits you, as the owner of a breeding animal. From about 5 months, get ready to start practicing with a handler. Choosing a handler (a person who will teach your dog how to behave at a show) is a difficult task, I also advise you to heed the recommendations of the breeder or club. But now everything is over and you signed up for the exhibition (all dog shows are paid, the price can fluctuate from about 10 to 40 dollars, depending on the rank of the show, as well as how you sign up for it in advance). Any exhibition, even the most qualified expert has a little bit of a lottery.
Yes, your dog fully complies with the standard, flawlessly displayed … but … just to explain such moments in the catalogs there is a postscript that the title is assigned at the discretion of the expert. Nobody can influence his assessment. And let's say this expert doesn't like the type of your dog (like in the movie … but there is no such one, but with mother-of-pearl buttons? - We will look.) And there is nothing to be offended at. Each person has a different view of the same objects.
In the early nineties, I had a case. Two exhibitions were held on one weekend. Saturday at one club, Sunday at another. And at both shows my breed was judged by the same judge, I will not give a surname. So on Saturday my dog was rated excellently, got the first place, and on Sunday it was rated very good and did not even get into the list. What can I say … no comment. So for all the perfection of your dog, get ready not only for triumph, but also for defeat. But of course there are exceptions to every rule. I am familiar with one company that has hobby-class dogs (exactly purchased for the house, for the family at an inexpensive installment plan), but imagining themselves to be the ancestors of the breed … the so-called "new type",I certainly understand how you want to wishful thinking, but what about the standard ??? It says in black and white what a dog of this breed should be. It's just ridiculous to look at their pathetic attempts at exhibitions, the dogs look awful, but the owners are swollen with pride, that's what we are. This is where the difference between a real dog handler is manifested, who would not even think of exhibiting a dog of this class and everyone near canine riffraffs, who also manage to knit them, but since they are overflowing with ambitions, they do not listen to generally known principles, and having tied mediocrity with mediocrity boldly declare that a miracle has happened and now the litter of the century … And they are touched by bringing exact copies of their mediocre dogs to the exhibitions. And when the experts tell them about the undesirable type and so on, how many insults are poured on an innocent person! Such people immediately try to get some kind of expertise in their acquaintances in order to acquire "by acquaintance" at least some title …
It is also no secret that there are corrupt experts, God is their judge … at exhibitions, as a rule, these are the most market participants. All dissatisfied, and discussing everyone. There are such unscrupulous people: it's just a pity for those who, under the guise of a champion, bought a dog from such swindlers, here is wishful thinking:
But I hope this cup will pass you by. And participation in exhibitions will only bring you joy.

In the houses of our readers, both cats and dogs very often live together, so the question of how to make friends of these notorious "irreconcilable enemies" worries very many. Here's what German zoopsychologists advise.Many are convinced that it is easier to keep a cat than a dog , since a dog, as a more social animal, needs communication, and an independent animal, a cat, does not need it
Dog money, money for dogs … It is somehow not customary for us to talk about this topic. After all, a dog is a friend of man, and, as you know, money cannot buy friendship. And yet, when a decision is made to have a puppy, the question of its cost is far from last.W
Living in the city, our cats move little and, as a result, get fat. Excess weight, in turn, leads to inactivity and problems with muscles, joints, respiratory organs, blood vessels, as well as hepatopathy … The list of physiological disorders can be continued. O
I would like to note that you are completely off the hook if you decide on such extravagance as creating a lot or, at least, a crooked-coal aquarium. That banal, flat, rectangular shape disgusted? Duc, for contemplation of what is included in this form - this is what you need
If something happened to you, and you wanted to have an aquarium, but either there is not enough money to purchase it, or from all the holes on the body, an unsatisfied desire to surprise the world with your golden hands rushes, you, of course, will start to think, how to create this miracle vessel yourself
