If you are in the market for a pet, specifically a dog, then pet shops are a good place to start. You can find a wide variety of dogs for sale at pet shops. Many of these dogs are pure bred or raised by farms who take good care of the animals, which is why they tend to cost more than if you bought a rescue dog. However, pure bred dogs are perfect in almost every way. They have been trained and disciplined so they are already house trained. When buying a puppy there are some things to look for while at pet shops, a sort of puppy buying guide. You want to look for a puppy that is not too excitable but is not lazy either. Then you are guaranteed to get a good mix of personality.
One of these breeds which is perfect for many reasons and can be found in pet shops is a Cavachon puppy. They are a mix between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Bichon Frise. The positives of this breed is that they are quiet and not barkers, which is pretty uncommon among little dogs. They are mellow, gentle yet playful, and sporty. Cavachons are great with children and other pets, specifically cats. Cavachon puppies are a hypoallergenic dog because they shed very little. Cavachons should receive a weekly bath and a bi-yearly visit to a professional groomer.
Buying a pet from pet shops offers companionship to the elderly. Some of the advantages of having a dog, as research shows, is that owning a pet decreases the symptoms of depression and anxiety. Spending time with your pet can increase seratonin and dopamine levels, which lowers your anxiety and increasing an over all feeling of well being. Pets from pet shops also encourage routine, laughter, and exercise, which can all boost your immune system.
