Your Puppy Adventure
Hi, I’m Pippa, author of The Happy Puppy Handbook.
I help puppy parents raise happy, well-behaved dogs!
Let's start by finding out where you are on your puppy journey!
Which One Are You?
Getting A Puppy Is A Big Deal!
Finding the right puppy is a bit like dating, only with potentially greater consequences.
It helps if you meet a few dogs and spend time with them to get a good idea of the right breed or type for you.
Which Type Of Dog?
Choosing a great fit for your family & lifestyle
You need to have something in common with the dog you bring home. Something that goes beyond an appreciation of their good looks. You are going to live with this character after all.
You are going to have to greet them each morning...
... feed them, pay their medical bills, teach them manners, introduce them to your friends....
....and at times, leave them alone in charge of your house!
Making mistakes here can be a really big deal! So you need to get this right.
That's why we have an extensive section on planning for your puppy in advance of the big day! As well as a ton of information and advice to help you once your puppy has arrived.
