  • When Schnauzers and Poodles Collide: Schnoodle – A Beautiful Mix

    The Schnauzer is known for its loyalty and fiercely protective nature. The Poodle is known for its clever and fun loving personality.

    Bringing those phenomenal dog breeds together can produce Schnoodle puppies with the absolute best characteristics, while not being headstrong like the Schnauzer or too excitable like the Poodle. If you’ve been reading our previous blog posts, then you already know that we have these perfect pooches right here at Petland. As if you need more reasons to decide, we’re highlighting some other fantastic facts about Schnoodle puppies. Continue reading to experience their surrounding hype!

    History

    Schnoodle puppies first made their appearance in the 1980s and have consistently been one of the most popular designer breeds, probably because of the various range of shapes and sizes. Poodles are one of the most commonly mixed breeds, if not the most popular. It’s indeed because of the breed’s exceptional intelligence, low shedding, and low dandruff coats. Whatever the case, there’s no denying their good nature and steady temperaments.

    Physical Appearance

    Schnoodle puppies are a surefire genetic lottery, because they can be anything! When they are mixed, most commonly it’s the result of the toy or miniature Poodle crossed with the miniature Schnauzer. Consequently, the will weigh anywhere between 10 to 25 pounds. However, some are much larger than this when the standard Poodle and giant Schnauzer is mixed. The coat can be many different colors, including:

    • Black
    • Black and white
    • Black and tan
    • Sable
    • Brown
    • Grey
    • Apricot
    • White

    Temperament and Character

    Schnoodles puppies are very affectionate dogs that love to be the center of attention. ’Tis true! They are beyond fun loving and most have a range of tricks to pull out of their bags to perform when they feel like the spotlight is not on them. Trust and believe that they’ll grab and maintain it if they feel they are being ignored. Through heredity, they instinctively are known to protect their people and property. They are vigilantly steadfast in this task, sometimes becoming rather noisy guard dogs. Admittedly, Schnoodle puppies and adult dogs can become a nuisance to nearby neighbors with their incessant, high shrieking barks, particularly when they’ve been left alone for prolonged periods of time. It’s recommended that a dog walker be hired or that they’re taken to a  doggy daycare during the day, to prevent such disturbances and to call the Schnoodle puppies’ nerves.

    Trainability

    Overwhelming, most Schnoodles are exceptionally intelligent dogs and easy to train. As we previously mentioned, they will pull tricks out and follow commands as part of their one-man-show! They aren’t particularly treat motivated. They will follow commands…just because!  

     

    Honestly, we can’t sing their praises enough! We implore you to come into either of our Petland locations and purchase one or two Schnoodle puppies, because we truly believe it’s a decision you will cherish many times over! Should you have any questions, just ask us and we’ll supply you the answers.

     

  • What You Should Know about Your Yorkie

    Are you interested in a Yorkie puppy?

    If your answer is “yes,” then you should know that you’re in for a really special treat, because they are one of the cutest dogs to own. It is important to know that there are some habits, like all dogs, about Yorkies can be a bit challenging but certainly manageable. Thankfully, you have us here at Petland and our pet counselors to assist you. Believe us, their goods far outweigh their bads!

     

    They’re Fragile

    Part of the allure surrounding Yorkies for sale is their size! They are the perfect purse pets, but with that comes fragility. They are incredibly delicate and should always be handled with care.  Although they are friendly and great around children of all ages, they should always be monitored and never left alone with them. Younger children in particular may regard them as toys and not the toy breed of a dog! As a result, they may be aggressive towards them, but only in a way to protecting themselves. Let your little ones know the proper ways to play with and handle the Yorkies for sale you have introduced to them.

     

    Wetting

    When you purchase Yorkies for sale, you should be prepared to also purchase puppy pads, because this breed is known for frequent urination. It’s partially due to their little bladders. Early and consistent training is necessary for them. Crate training is highly recommended for Yorkies, as well.

     

    Aggressiveness

    Despite their small size, Yorkies can be curious. They are the big dogs in little bodies and they truly suffer from small dog syndrome. Aggression towards other dogs is somewhat normal for Yorkies, but it’s important to check it so very early on so that they know this behavior is not cute or acceptable. Okay, it’s kinda cute, but not acceptable!

     

    As we previously mentioned, our Yorkies for sale have overwhelmingly more positive traits than negative ones and they’re quite the catch! Stop into our store today and pick up one!

     

  • Understanding a Dog’s Temperament

    Much like with humans, all dogs have different personalities and temperaments.

    For instance, you may seem some Bassett Hound dogs on sale that are rather laid back and seemingly unbothered. You may encounter Beagle dogs on sale who are just bursting at the seam with exuberance! Our point? Dogs will exhibit varied temperaments and their individual demeanors are influenced by several factors. Here are the top three factors.

    Heredity

    Heredity plays a part in determining a dog’s temperament. You’ll notice a recurring theme with us and that is our constant comparison of human behavior to dog behavior! We can’t help it and that’s because it’s applicable in so many scenarios. You know the saying “it runs in the family” right? Well it’s true for furry families, too! Parents pass on certain characteristics to their children and the same goes for dogs. If there are dogs on sale that are particularly hyper, some of their offspring may naturally pick up that same trait and others may not. If the parent is hot tempered, chances are high that the offspring will pick up some of these traits.

     

    Training

    Don’t believe it when you hear “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!” That’s simply not true. It may take some time, but it’s possible and that really applies to young dogs on sale, as well. While heredity plays a role in determining a dog’s temperament, training can combat any negative traits that may have been passed down. In order for a pet owner to obtain the desired behavior in their dog, training must be consistent and the earlier training is instilled, the better and shorter the behavioral redirection will be. An aggressive older dog can be trained to be a gentle and kind one.

     

    Socialization

    In many of our previous blog posts, we’ve discussed the importance of early socialization. The dogs on sale in our store are socialized very early on, but it’s up to you as the owner to continue what we’ve started. The socialization process entails exposing your dog to various people and other pets and in doing so, you’ll encourage him to be more trusting of strangers and strange things. Socialization will change a skittish pup into a fearless one and it’s beautiful to witness.

     

    At Petland, we are here to help you along the way. We want all of the dogs on sale to remain happy and healthy pups when they leave our home and enter yours!

All dogs require some level of mental stimulation and yours will be no exception, especially in the puppy phase.

    The guinea pig belongs to the rodent family and despite the name, they are not in the pig family nor do they come from Guinea in Africa. Guinea pigs originated in the Andes of South America. In Western societies, the domestic guinea pig has risen to popularity as household small animals for sale.

When they are excited and happy and familiar with you, that’s how you’ll be greeted!

Their diets should consist mainly of fresh grass hay like timothy hay and food pellets, which are based on timothy hay.
