Did you know that our region’s animal shelters have already taken in more than 11,000 abandoned dogs this year? It’s an unfortunate reality that demands to be changed. Thankfully, there are actions residents may take that will begin improving the situation for New York’s four-legged residents. One of the most important ones involves pre-puppy consultations, which are available through our canine training center in Long Island.
Our comprehensive, pre-puppy consultation services are designed, in part, to help would-be pet owners fully understand what is involved in raising various breeds of dogs. We’ll provide honest, in-depth information on everything from a breed’s temperament to its potential health issues and activity needs.
In addition, our team can aid Long Island residents in setting up their homes in advance of the pup’s arrival. Canine Commander puppy prepping may include making suggestions on which pet supplies and property modifications would be best for the wellbeing of particular breeds of puppies.
Once the puppy arrives, the services don’t end there. We can also work with puppies and their owners to ensure that the pets receive the proper socialization and behavior training they need to become successful members of the family. These are important steps, especially when you consider why owners tend to give up their dogs.
According to organizations like PETA Prime and most rescue organizations, some of the chief reasons for dog abandonment are poor planning, behavior problems, incompatibility, health issues, lifestyle changes and financial difficulties. Our canine training center’s pre-puppy consultations and subsequent services help families address those potential problems proactively, thereby reducing the chances that the pet will end up in a Long Island shelter later on down the road.
