The lofty place of the dog as man’s best friend is never in doubt or threat, and east-west, all and sundry will happily confess that they get the best love from their dog any day, no holds barred! Dogs are indeed loyal and once they bond and gel, their amity will only grow more each new day. And depending on the breed that you keep in the family, the one thing about dogs is that they will stick to their training and rules within the home and breed, to the last letter. No exceptions except for when there is a very good reason for that rare aberration! With the right planning and knowledge, the chances for disappointment when you bring your best friend home will almost be absent. What more would man ask for in a friend that one who is one indeed? Right now, there are hundreds of dog breeds globally, and millions of families happily keep them as integral members of their homes.
Behind the scenes, the one thing to appreciate is that for every breed of a dog, there was a breeder. And the breed came about as a result of a painstaking effort that brought the good result that the world enjoys the company or duties of. Many common and popular breeds exist; like the German shepherd and the Labrador that we are likely to find in families. Some breeds, like the Miniature Schnauzer may not be as common in your area but for those in the know, what they prefer has nothing to do with what others own out there; this in itself is a selling point for such breed since many people look at them just like treasured collectors’ items, hence their greater value. And pointedly, different regions of the world will also have their preferred dog breed over others, certainly depending on climate and legal aspects that will indeed impact on their health. Overall, it is important to appreciate breeders for their unique creations, and for their part in keeping and purifying the bloodlines of the very dogs that we so much love.

The breeder should guide you on this, besides providing all pertinent information on the pedigree of the new dog and every other positive attitude locally inculcated in the dog.
