Default [HELP] About getting a Puppy

So I am looking to buy a Puppy and so far I read that they cannot leave their mum until 8-12 weeks. I was also wondering when the best time of the year would be to get the puppy, like would I have to have time off work to stay with the puppy, my friend said I would have to stay off work and stay in the house with the puppy for 6 weeks, is this true?

Thanks!

No puppies should not leave the litter or Breeder until 8 yo 10 weeks old. Some even longer is small breeds.

If you work all day I suggest that maybe you wait longer before buying as yes, somebody needs to be home to train and work with a young puppy. If you could arrange for some person to go and take it out regular and exercise it, maybe it might work out, but I would not sell you a puppy if you work and are not going to be home much.

Puppies need alot of love, attention, training and just care in general. I would never suggest any one breed to anybody unless they had several suggestions of some. If your young and do not want tied down right now, skip the puppy till later. I think spring puppies born are best and leave like in May and one has all summer if you do not work then to train and work with the puppy. Winter pups are highly hard to do taking out in snow, etc. Just a thing I do not like to breed in cold months, many do however.

I wish you much luck in looking, be careful and choose according to how you can exercise and work with the breed, some take much more and some less work. Research what would work for your lifestyle and size of home or apartment u live in.
