5 Things You Should Know About Purchasing a Puppy

January 7, 2018

Coming to the decision to buy a pup can mean many different things to people, but here at Petland Kennesaw, we welcome anyone who wants to explore the joys of pet ownership!

Purchasing a pet is a priceless experience for you and your family. Here are 5 things you should know before you buy a puppy.

  1. Puppies provide unconditional love and companionship.

Puppies offer unconditional love and are a joy to have around. They teach you patience and are always there for you no matter how tough your day was. Puppies have unique personalities and as you get to know your puppy you’ll wonder how you lived your life without them. The feeling of love will take over your life, and you’ll soon find yourself canceling plans with two legged friends, to spend time at home cuddling with your puppy. There’s truth to the old adage “a dog is a man’s best friend.”

  1. They are good for the body and good for the soul.

Sometimes we don’t get the exercise we need, but having a puppy is great motivation to get out of the house to go walking. The simple activity of walking helps stimulates our muscles and our minds, while helping the puppy become familiar with their new environment. Puppies are eager to explore, so a good brisk walk is beneficial to both you and your new puppy. Owning a puppy helps balance your lifestyle and gives you the opportunity to exercise and enjoy time outdoors.

  1. Puppies are emotionally healthy for your life.

Owning a puppy can have a positive emotional impact on your life. Children can learn empathy and the joy of caring for a living being besides themselves. Children then tend to apply this learned empathy and use it in other areas of their lives. These young dog owners learn to have patience and understanding for others.

  1. There are medical benefits.

Did you know owning a puppy decreases stress and prevents depression? Owning a pet actually brings stress levels down. Dog owners look forward to caring for and spending time with their furry friends. They’re also less likely to experience depression if a puppy is in their lives. There is a sense of security, because no matter what they are always there for you, therefore you’re less likely to have bad or lonely days. Senior citizens thrive even more when they have a puppy in their lives. It gives them a sense of hope, love, and a positive attitude in life.

  1. Meeting new people and having new experiences.

This may not be something you are seeking, but it comes with the territory of owning a puppy. It’s a good thing, since loving dog owners have a lot in common. In just a simple walk with your dog, you will meet others with the same interest of caring for their puppy. Stories can be shared over coffee and puppies can find new friends. If you’re ready to buy a pup that will bring joy to your life, let Petland Kennesaw guide you to the right puppy for your family.
