With Puberpups you buy a slightly older puppy who does not yet have an owner. The prices for this are therefore slightly more favorable than for a young puppy. Yet it has nothing but advantages! Unlike shelter dogs, these dogs do not come from previous owners. They have been raised and socialized in a warm litter with their puppy siblings and have received all medical care. Some shelter dogs bring a whole backpack with them, for example (hidden) problems or incorrectly learned behaviour. This sometimes presents additional risks when combining such dogs with other pets or (smaller) children. In practice you see that shelter dogs are regularly returned after a few weeks. Our adolescent puppies, on the other hand, are just as reliable as a baby puppy, only a few months older and therefore also a bit more independent. For example, they already know the basics of potty training and are therefore very quickly potty trained. This only makes it easier for you as the first owner.
