And the journey begins…

‘mydogjourney’ is my story about getting and raising a new puppy.

Through my journey I want to guide new dog owners and answer all those questions you may have. This blog is to help educate people who haven’t had much experience with dogs and need a little push in the right direction when making the big decisions.

My journey will take you through some of the tough decisions you may face such as deciding to get a dog, choosing a breed, finding the right breeder, preparing your home, choosing the right pup from the litter, bringing your new pup home, basic training skills and much much more!!

I am a qualified dog trainer but more importantly as you could tell from my facebook or instagram account, I am totally obsessed and passionate about dogs and in particular puppies. I want to share my story and knowledge with all of you to try and make our dogs live the happiest lives they can…

    Do you have strategies as to how to convince a husband into buying a dog? 🙂 not sure if a letter in the mail will work for him!!

    My next post should help you!! I am going to blog about 'if a dog is right for you'. Hopefully it will give you some handy tips to persuade your hubby. What breed would you like to get? Maybe take him to visit a breeder when they have pups? Who can resist gorgeous little puppies?!…

    Congratulations Mel on your blog. I hope that you will also be recommending people contact their local shelters and rescue groups to find their perfect dog, rather than automatically contacting a breeder. Contrary to public opinion, shelters and rescue groups do have puppies who are needing their forever homes – we got out two guys 8 years ago as gorgeous pups. There are also lots of deserving older dogs who need a home and they give lots of thanks and love to their new owners. Regards, Kylie

    Thanks Kylie! I will definitely blog about this. I think what the shelters and rescue groups do is incredible and all dogs deserve a loving home.
