Puppies For Sale NSW

Puppies For Sale NSW

If there is one state in dog-loving Australia that offers endless fun and adventure for your beloved pooches, it is New South Wales. Situated on the eastern coast of the country, it is a “pawsome” place to raise a puppy.

It has glorious beaches, plenty of canine-friendly accommodations, some gorgeous parks, and several cafés that welcome dogs, big or small, with a friendly smile. Just be sure to keep your puppy on a leash and clean up after it.

No wonder that from October 2020 to September 2021, the average monthly search for puppies for sale in NSW was 12,100, according to Google Australia KW Planner. That’s a lot compared with other states in the country.

If you’re thinking of adding a new dog to your household, there are a couple of things to consider. First, assess which breed is suitable for your family. Second, consider your lifestyle. Third, make sure you can cover ongoing and future expenses. Finally, assess your living space.

This is because not long ago, NSW prevented pets from living in apartments. However, the verdict was recently overturned and, now, dogs are no longer banned from living in apartment buildings. This is great news if you live in an apartment and want to adopt a dog soon.

Regardless of where you live, you must choose the right breed for you. Deciding on the perfect one will not be easy, though, so below is a chart that may help you pick out the most suitable puppy for yourself or your family:

Common Questions to Ask your Dog Breeder

Everybody wants to end up with a puppy that is healthy and happy which is why it is recommended to buy from a reputable breeder. One way to know if your seller is trustworthy is if they can and are willing to answer any questions you have about their puppy.

Here is an important thing to remember: don’t hesitate to ask your breeder many things. If you must make a list of the questions you want to ask, do so.

Can I meet the parents?

Asking your breeder to meet the parents is recommended if possible. While it may sometimes not be possible to meet the parents if they are not around, you should ask to if given the chance.

When meeting the parents, interact with them for a few minutes so that you can assess their overall temperament. If they are aggressive, fearful, or showing negative characteristics, walk away and find another breeder.

If the entire litter is around, ask your breeder to meet it as well. This way, you can assess each puppy’s appearance, size, health, energy level, and character. Each one should be comfortable around you even when you touch it.

Finally, take a look at the property where your puppy is being raised. Make sure it is clean and odour-free. Both parents and the dog should be well-groomed.

How do you go about socialising your puppies?

Proper socialisation at an early age is critical in puppies. It is suggested that you question your breeder if their canine has been exposed to other people and dogs. Find out how it reacts to new and different sights, sounds, surfaces, and smells.

Housetraining usually begins with the breeder. Before they sell a puppy, they should have at least begun to teach it simple commands. Most responsible breeders have plenty of experience when it comes to training dogs. They also often have useful tips to share with their buyers.

Have the parents been examined for genetic conditions?

Even pedigree dogs have health conditions that can be passed down to their offspring. This is why you must request your breeder for information about your desired puppy’s breed line. This way, you will have an idea of how long your dog will likely live.

Additionally, check for both the parents’ recent health certificates so that you know if they have had illnesses or treatments of late. By doing so, you will have an idea of what preventative measures to take in the future.

What kind of food can I feed the puppy?

Is the puppy up-to-date on its vaccinations?

It is the seller’s responsibility to have their dogs receive their first round of shots between six to eight weeks of age. The second vaccination series, which is usually administered between 10 to 12 weeks of age, can be passed down to you.

Keep in mind, however, that you need to know what vaccinations your chosen puppy has already had. Find out when it is due for its next round of shots. Finally, ask your breeder if the canine has been examined and declared healthy by a licensed veterinarian.

Do you offer a health guarantee and contract?

An ethical breeder should provide you with a health guarantee. This way, you will be up-to-date with your chosen puppy’s medical records, certifications, and breed club or pedigree information (if applicable).

Likewise, request your seller for a contract of sale so that you know what your responsibilities are as both buyer and seller.
