Buying a Dog for Christmas?

Christmas is the Worst Time to Buy a Puppy

By:  Bonnie Sweebe

Thinking about buying a puppy as a Christmas gift?  If so, please think again.  Christmas is the worst time to buy a puppy.  Here’s why.

Retail Pet Stores:

Retail stores rely on Christmas profits to boost their year-end sales figures.  They stock store shelves with merchandise.  For a pet store retailer, that merchandise may include puppies.

Retail pet stores that sell dogs stock cages full of overpriced puppies with eyes that plead, “Buy me!” During the holiday season, human emotions run high and impulse purchases are frequent.  Retailers know that.

So please, resist buying a puppy for Christmas if only for this reason:  Reputable breeders do not sell puppies for Christmas.  Why?  It’s not fair to the puppy.
