border-colliesDogs that need the most exercise are breeds that were developed to work long hours for a living such as herding dogs and bird dogs.  Among these hard working types are Border Collies. Labrador Retrievers, German Short hair Pointers, Jack Russell Terriers and Dalmatians. They are all frisky, inquisitive and always ready to go. They practically jump into their dog leashes. High energy dogs will match up best with high energy people. Owners that are willing to seek out activities that are challenging to their high energy friends. Theses dogs need consistent training, firm discipline and lots of exercise.  So if you are not a high energy person, then choose a dog at the opposite end of the energy spectrum.

Surprise! You’re a Dog Owner

ceramic-dog-dishSurprising somebody with a puppy can be a very exciting and spontaneous gift. It can also be rewarding, but only if you’ve given the gift a lot of thought. If you buy a puppy on a whim, it’s a dangerous endeavor. You must make sure you have the time, energy, and money necessary to give a puppy a loving home. If you haven’t thought about the purchase beforehand, you run the risk of the recipient losing interest or simply being unable to provide what that young puppy deserves.

With that in mind, before you give anybody a puppy as a surprise, make sure you also consider purchasing the immediately necessary dog products. With the puppy itself, provide the lucky recipient with a supply of dog food, a ceramic dog dish, a comfy dog bed, and a couple of dog collars. The most important thing to consider is that the puppy needs love and attention right away. Put the new dog owner in a position to start feeding and walking the puppy right away. Just provide enough to get through the first week or so. This gives them enough time to make all the secondary purchases for their new best friend.
