Re: Pet store puppy

Great pics thanks. Charlie is gorgeous as all V's are of course......


Now, if you had originally planned a golden, place an image of a Golden's energy levels in your mind, multiply by 50 and you have a Vizsla...........

Re: Pet store puppy

Charlie is a cutie... congrats on your new pup.... our v's are 3 1/2 years and 12 weeks .... read, read, read on this forum and anything else you can find at your local library, bookstores, internet so you will know what to expect from your Vizlsa as he grows. Check around and see if you can find any others in your area and schedule outings with them and pick their brains for all info as well.

Life as you knew it will never be the same now that you have a V in your family! Good Luck ...... Oh noticed that you are Michigan Fans..... Dare I say GO BUCKS!!!!! We are in Central Ohio!

I truly hope your puppy grows up healthy and free from any genetic issues. Please have a vet (not one recommended by the pet store, but one you've researched and picked yourself) check him THOROUGHLY for internal parasites, kennel cough, ear mites, etc. I would have them do a complete blood and fecal test to make absolutely sure he is healthy. Puppies from mills tend to have all sorts of health problems that may not show up right away.
Yes we got him at Pet Land, I will never get a dog from them again. We have been very happy with him. He sleeps thought the night, he goes outside. Not sure what to work on next.

Re: Pet store puppy

I've always fancied a dog that would bring me a cup of coffee in the morning

Would you settle for this, instead?.... also guaranteed to wake you up and alert, for a while

Re: Pet store puppy

BJM...

Walk him... doesn't look like the boy had a chance to stretch his legs for a while, been sitting in the showroom window waiting for you ... maybe you can start with that ... short trips every day a little longer.

Re: Pet store puppy

Agree with MilesMom. Get Ian Dunbar's book Before and After getting your Puppy. Personally I found that to be an all around good read. Also 101 Dog Tricks by Kyra Sundance - she covers the basic stuff and advance tricks. I taught Kiya to sit, down, crawl, shake and High five in a week. They are very eager to learn at the young age...take advantage of that now!

Re: Pet store puppy

Oh and also, enroll in a puppy preschool where he can be around other dogs and people! Take him to stores that are dog friendly. I think you have a Lowes Home store there..they are dog friendly. I had Kiya there the day after I got her @ 7 weeks...she got more attention from all kinds of people than I could have ever asked for!

Ok I'm done, I think!

Re: Pet store puppy

Oh and just wanted to note that Before You Get your Puppy and After you Get your Puppy by Ian Dunbar are available as free pdfs - just google. Dunbar has a lot of great advice on socializing and basic tricks.
