How to choose a Bobtail puppy: expert advice
A bobtail puppy is a charming creature, however, before choosing a pet, think a hundred times whether this is really your breed. Bobtails are large dogs that require quite a bit of space. They also have long hair, which is quite difficult to care for. And the pet will require attention from you oh how much!

If you are firmly convinced that you really need a bobtail, you can start choosing a puppy.
Visit the exhibitions, look at the dogs, chat with the breeders and already held owners.
A personal acquaintance with the parents of a potential pet will give you the opportunity to understand what exactly will grow out of this fluffy lump. If the parents are healthy and have a good psyche, then the puppies will be similar to them. Be sure to pay attention to how the puppy's mother behaves and how she reacts to people.
If you are looking for a future star of exhibitions, remember that at the age of 2 months it is extremely difficult to identify the champion. But consulting with an expert will increase your chances.
For whatever you get a puppy, he must be healthy. A healthy Bobtail puppy has clean eyes, ears and skin, a moist nose and a soft tummy.
Ask the breeder any questions, even “uncomfortable”. A good breeder will gladly answer them and, in turn, will ask you about the purpose of acquiring puppies and the conditions in which he will live. If your questions irritate the breeder or the answers seem vague, you should look for another nursery.
