Ok, so now you know how to go about finding a new best friend and where to go to get him/her. I can’t stress enough how important it is to do your homework. Please do not just buy a puppy because it’s cute, you are asking for trouble if you buy dogs this way. Do some research, find the right breed to fit your lifestyle, and most importantly.. don’t buy the first pup you see.
I am a canine behaviorist of 27 years and offer canine rehabilitation, training, and behavior change to clients under the given name "The Canine Guru." I am known mostly for my online presence through my blogs, Doggy Times and Doggy Times II. Both were honored by MSN Editors multiple times. My methodology focuses on energy and how to use and read it. I firmly believe in operant conditioning and positive reinforcement. I don't feel that choke, pinch, or electric collars are necessary when working with dogs. The harshest method I ever use is the squirt bottle and the occasional touch, or poke. I'm known for "speaking" to dogs in their own language using body language, energy, touch, and the occasional sound.
