    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!

  • 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!

  • 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Boxers

    Boxer dogs stand tall and proud and hail as one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States

    Boxers for sale are constantly winning the hearts of families. Whether it’s their sometimes goofy and playful stances or their upright and regal poses, they are loved. Instead of technical talk about the Boxer breed, we’re going to share 5 less commonly known things about Boxers for sale. Take a look!

     

    1. They’re Runners

    The roots of Boxers can be traced back to the now extinct Bullenbeisser, which was a dog of Mastiff and the English Bulldog descent. Also known as the Boxl, it was trained to hunt large game such as boar, bear, and deer. They were exceptional hunting companions, because they were extremely fast and held a rightful reputation for its powerful jaws. Today’s Boxers for sale are still regarded for their athleticism, running 38 to 45 miles per hours, making them one of the fastest dog breeds.

     

    1. World Record Holder

    It seems there’s a category for everything, so there’s no wonder that Boxers hold one. The Guinness World Record for the longest dog tongue in the world belongs to a then 7 year old Boxer. In January 2002, a Boxer named Brandy, had a tongue that measured 17 inches long. The previous long tongue title holder belonged to a Pekingese with a mere 4.5 inches.

     

    1. Served in the War

    Before Boxers for sale were household and family favorites, they were originally and almost exclusively used as working dogs in World War I. They were used as messengers, pack carriers, guard dogs, and attack dogs. After World War II, the soldiers brought the dogs home and they were rapidly integrated into domesticated and family homes.

     

    1. Black “Boxers” Aren’t Boxers

    Boxers for sale are either one of two colors: fawn (tan) or brindle (a tan coat with black stripes). The boxer dog breed does not carry the gene for a solid black coat; therefore, purebred black boxer dogs do not exist.

     

    1. Common Health Concerns for Boxers

    When you purchase Boxers for sale, you should know that the most common health problems associated with them are:

    • Allergies and skin infection
    • Ear infections
    • Vomiting and diarrhea
    • Cystitis or urinary tract infection
    • Cardiac arrhythmia
    • Cardiomyopathy
