Puppy Buying Research

Looking after the health and welfare of your Schnauzer can be a full time job. You will find information on neutering, spaying, vaccinations, vet visits, upset tummies, Schnauzer bumps and much more here. Ask a question and someone will have had a similar experience. We also appreciate updates on how your Schnauzer is recuperating. A separate section is dedicated to our older Schnauzers.

Puppy Buying Research

This makes for sad reading I'm afraid. Would it be possible to post it as a stickie somewhere for potential puppy buyers?

One in three inadvertently buy from puppy farms on impulse

New research shows consequences of impulsive UK puppy buying habits as charity urges public to #PAWs4thought this Puppy Awareness Week

Nearly a third of UK puppy buyers admit they could have bought from a puppy farm after not doing enough research, inadvertently fuelling this cruel trade.
Our hasty decisions have consequences: 20 per cent of puppies bought on an impulse get sick or die before their first birthday, and two in five puppy buyers who bought impulsively spent more than they anticipated looking after their puppy’s health.
Many don’t recognise the warning signs of a bad breeder and pay the price - nearly half of all pups bought online without being seen first, via outlets often used by puppy farmers, end up with serious and potentially life-threatening health problems.
Two in five choose a puppy simply because of how it looks, without taking time to understand its health, temperament or exercise needs, causing many to regret their seemingly ‘cute’ decision.
The Kennel Club marks Puppy Awareness Week by asking puppy buyers to #PAWsforthought and do their homework to help prevent needless suffering.
