Upcoming Puppy Owner

Postby Adino » Wed Jul 23, 2014 3:24 pm

Hello, I just signed up. I'm 15, and I've lived around dogs all my life and have researched dogs for at least 3 years. I'm looking to get a puppy sometime this year. I've never owned a Maltese, my father has owned German shepards, Bull Mastif and Boxers, so he has no skill with the Maltese breed either. I plan to buy my puppies crate and supplis beforehand. And I plan to buy my puppy from either a good shelter or from a breeder. Here are my circumstances-

I'm young, but I'm mature and responsible for my age, the puppies needs will be split between I, and my mother.

I live in a town house and share my bedroom with my sister, I plan to place the puppies crate in our bedroom.

I have enough time to walk the puppy, and train him. The only time I will not be home, my mother will feed him and take him on his potty breaks for a span of 6 hours while I'm at school. I plan for him to nap twice in between those 6 hours.

I plan to keep his coat short, I will trim him myself. I don't plan on paying a groomer regularly.

If you have any advice for me, shoot away! :D
