GARDENA, Calif., Dec. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In their recently released Christmas-inspired blog, Innovet Pet warns pet owners about the dangers of giving someone a puppy as a gift. Innovet says a puppy can often be too much of a responsibility for someone, especially when the person isn't expecting it. This just doesn't make it hard on the new dog owner, but the puppy as well, who could end up suffering in a shelter.
"A puppy can be an amazing gift," says co-founder Dave Louvet. "But they can also be one of the worst, and unlike other gifts, this one can suffer. We want to see fewer dogs in shelters, not more! That's why we are really trying to get the warning out about giving a puppy as a holiday-inspired gift. We know the holidays are magical, and it can seem like an amazing present to give a dog during this time. But if you're doing it simply because of the holidays, then it's not right. And gift-givers have nothing to worry about, as studies show pet owners don't have a closer attachment to their pet if they received them as a Christmas gift."
In the blog, Innovet gives some helpful tips for those looking to make someone's Christmas a special day with a new puppy:
- Know the receiver of the gift's schedule and lifestyle, and that both can handle a dog.
- Understand that a puppy can only hold their bladder for one hour per month of age and that working full time and balancing a young dog is extremely difficult.
- Strongly consider taking the dog yourself if the person can't handle them.
- If looking to give your kids a puppy present, make sure you're prepared to handle all the responsibilities, especially if the kids are under age 12.
- Last, consider getting the person essential supplies like a crate or food bowls instead of a dog, then offer to help the person find their new pup.
Innovet Pet says that in most cases, it's better to hold off giving someone a puppy as a Christmas gift. That when you handle the idea with care and caution, you're setting both the puppy and their new mommy or daddy up for success.
