Abuses are still taking place in the dog trade and dog breeding. Imported dogs or dogs from illegal breeders or traders, for example, do not have the correct vaccinations, are not microchipped and registered, maybe too young, are not well socialized, or have been badly treated during their short lives. Also, the origin of the animals is not always clear.

Buying a dog comes with quite a change in your life.
A dog is a very loyal and social animal. Raising a dog takes a lot of time and attention. Therefore, think carefully about whether you have the time, opportunity, space, and affection before bringing a dog into your home.

Which dog suits you and your personal circumstances best? This is a question you can ask yourself when looking for a dog. There is a big difference in the type of dog that you buy to guard your house or as a playmate for the children. Are you looking for a dog that the children can play with? Maybe you are looking for a very quiet dog, who will go out with older people in peace and quiet. Will you choose a female or a male?

Do you already have a certain dog in mind? Then think about whether this type of dog will suit the circumstances and the space that you can give the animal. If you live in a house that is built on more than one floor, you should preferably choose a smaller dog. If you have a house with stairs, do not choose a dog with a long body and short legs.

You can choose between a pedigree dog or a crossbreed. The advantage of a crossbreed is that the dog is less prone to defects or hereditary diseases. A cross-breed is also on average less ill and generally gets older compared to a pedigree dog. A cross-breed is also cheaper to buy. With a pedigree dog, you can tell immediately from the breed type what character your dog has. You have extremely playful breeds and very quiet ones.

However, the formation of the (breed) dog's character also relates to puppyhood. It is therefore important to be aware of the circumstances in which the dog was raised as a puppy. The character of a puppy is mainly formed between 4 and 12 weeks of age.

A puppy must be at least 7 weeks old before it can be taken away from its mother. Let the breeder tell you a bit about the puppies' characters. The more he has to say, the better it is. It shows that he is deeply involved with the animals. If the breeder starts asking questions about the circumstances and motives of the buyer, that is also a good sign. A good breeder will never sell his puppies to someone he doesn't trust.
