Just one of the great things about Petland is that we have a wide variety of puppy breeds. We even have teacup puppies, too!
What does “teacup” mean anyway? It means different things to different people; however, it seems that the term is misused often. For instance, some people use the word to advertise a specific type of dog. You’ve undoubtedly seen the term teacup Yorkie or teacup Chihuahua. However, it’s important to note that there are no actual breeds that use the word teacup in their official breed name. Teacup refers to their uniquely small size and yes it means that they’re small enough to fit into a teacup!
The Petland Difference!
Here at Petland, we consider ourselves to be in the education business. “Education in what?” you ask. We are educated in all things pet-related! We have pet counselors onsite to assist our customers! They receive ongoing training and are passionately knowledgeable. For instance, when you purchase one of our teacup puppies our pet counselors will be available to help you select the appropriate food and give you tips on feeding instructions.
Just a Few Requirements for Teacup Puppies
There will be a ton of things you’ll have questions about, and that’s okay! Here’s what’s most important.
- First, you want to make sure that your teacup puppy has a high-quality diet. It should be one that’s rich in fiber. Purchase canned or dry foods that contain ingredients like eggs, chicken, fruits, veggies, and omega 3 fatty acids. Teacup puppies are susceptible to low blood sugar, so Karo syrup should be an ingredient in their food.
- Make sure your teacup puppies get sufficient rest. They play a lot and tend to feel very tired after activity. Provide a comfortable bed for your teacup puppy. After playing with your puppy, place her in the bed and leave her alone to rest for a few hours! She needs it. Teacup puppies actually need about 14 hours of sleep each day!
- While many people who are searching for teacups are thrilled when they find the pup of their dreams, it’s important to consider if you want to shoulder the responsibility. Puppies, in many ways, are like infants, with teacup puppies being the smallest among them. So, think about everything carefully before picking out teacup puppies!
