    Default Assignment Help

    Hey everyone, I need some help!
    I am doing an assignment where I have to plan and execute a hypothetical information night on Bringing Home A New Puppy.

    The last question is "Anticipate some of the questions you may get at your information night and plan some answers"
    My guests speakers would include an animal behaviouralist and the president of the local animal rescue, plus my talk about bringing home a puppy so a lot of things would be covered.

    If you were going to get a puppy and decided to go to an info night (assuming you know shit all) what kind of questions would you ask?
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    When is my puppy old enough to go out to the park and meet new dogs?

    My vet told me not to socialise my puppy until after it's vaccinations? Is this right? (unfortunately vets are suggesting this)

    Where is the best place for my puppy to sleep?

    How should I introduce my puppy to the house?

    How do I puppy-proof my house?

    What should I feed my puppy?

    Do I need to take my puppy to puppy school?

    ...If I think of any more I'll comment again :P

    OoooH,

    How do I know if my puppy is from a puppy farm or not?

    I heard all puppies from shelters have problems. Why should I rescue a puppy?

    What's wrong with just buying from the pet shop?

    Sean, that's what people used to be taught back in the day, so they think it may be right. It's the same as people yelling at their dog if they come home and see it has ripped apart a lounge cushion. They think the dog understands, when it doesn't. They do what their parents did, who dod what their parents did, and so on. If everyone went to classes and learnt about proper dog behaviour and how to train their dog, we wouldn't have even close to the number of dog related issues we do, if any at all.
