Buying a puppy is a huge and exciting decision. Adding another member to your family is something you need to make sure you get right! Today we will share a few tips to help you choose the right puppy in Boca Raton.

Family Size
Is your family just you and your significant other? Or do you have kids? Taking into account the size of your family will help you to determine the temperament of dog you want! If you have kids for example, you want to look for a pup that is well known to get along well with children.

Lifespan of the Breed

Lifespan may not be something that a lot of individuals think about, but it can play a factor in which breed of dog you pick. For example, small dogs typically live longer than large dogs. If you want a pup to grow up with your child, a small dog may be the way to go!


Is anyone in your family allergic to dogs? If so, you should choose a hypoallergenic breed such as a shih tzu. Another reason to choose a hypoallergenic pooch is in case you travel and need a pet sitter. A friend or family member may have to decline if they have allergies unless you have a hypoallergenic pup.

Activity Level

When picking out a pup you should definitely be thinking about how active they will be when fully grown, and be sure you are able to keep up with their needs.
