How to Choose the Perfect Puppy for Your Family

buying puppies in Lena, Louisiana

Who doesn’t love cuddly puppies with their big eyes and playful personalities? You can’t wait to see your kids snuggling up with a furry companion and having a lifetime of fun together. But before you fall in love with a pup, you must take the time to find the right one for your family. Princess Puppies has the ultimate guide for buying puppies in Lena, Louisiana, which is sure to help you find the perfect furry friend.

Evaluate Your Lifestyle

The first step to finding the perfect puppy is evaluating your lifestyle. Do you want an active pup who needs long walks and lots of playtime? Or are you looking for a calmer pet that prefers lounging around with you on the couch? Think about how much time and space you have to dedicate to caring for a pet and choose a dog breed that fits in with your daily routines.

Poodles and Shih Tzu are known for their laid-back personalities, while Jack Russells and German Shepherds need lots of exercises to stay happy and healthy. Knowing the type of lifestyle you have will ensure that you get the perfect pup for your home.

Know Your Breed

Once you’ve decided what type of puppy would fit into your lifestyle, it’s time to research the available dog breeds. Learning more about their size, coat type, activity level, and typical health issues can help you make an informed decision. Designer dog breeds are becoming increasingly popular, so be sure to research these too. 

Things to consider are the length of their coat if they need regular brushing or trimming, and whether they shed a lot. Allergies are another important factor to take into account when selecting a breed.

Prepare for Your Puppy’s Arrival

Finally, you must be well-prepared for your new puppy’s arrival. Get all the necessary equipment such as food and water bowls, a collar and leash, chew toys, and a comfortable bed. You will also need to puppy-proof your home and find a veterinarian in your area so you can take the pup for check-ups. 

Give Time to Your Puppy

When they first arrive in their new home, puppies may feel scared and confused. Give them some space to get used to their new surroundings and get to know them at their own pace. The more time you spend with your pup, the easier it will be for them to bond with you.

Choosing the perfect puppy for your family is a big decision that requires careful consideration of many different factors. Hopefully, this guide has helped you decide which pup would make the best fit.

What Our Friends Have To Say

Tracy Orr

We purchased “Jessie” almost 3 years ago. We named her Charley. She is the sweetest, FUNNIEST little Pom-a-Poo! She loves people and everyone loves her. She’s smart and is the apple of our eye. When we lost our poodle of 18 years, we were heartbroken. Charley has filled our home with laughter and love. Thank you, Princess Puppies and Brittany for raising such wonderful friends! ❤️ Tracy



We had a beautiful 5 year old Shitzu that we loved. A Hawk killed her the day after Christmas. We were heartbroken. We found Princess Puppies and Brittney met us at 7 pm that evening to let us meet Noel. It was love at first sight. We have had her a few days now and she is the sweetest little furbaby. Very cuddly and affectionate. Has slept with us...



Piper just made 1 year old and she has brought so much love to our family. She is a Malshi and weighs 9 pounds. She has been a sweetheart from the moment we got her. It is obvious she was well loved when we got her. I recommend Princess Puppies highly.



This is my heartbeat Bentley He loves his mama and is always in my lap 🙂 He is the best snuggler and goes everywhere with me in his stroller. He is a Malshi and weighs 12lbs. He loves his rubber ducks! Shared

My baby Liberty is almost 1. I bought her last October and she has been the light of my life. Her personality is so sweet and she is spoiled rotten. Princess Puppies was very accommodating when I inquired about their puppies and meeting me on my time schedule. I could not be a happier fur mom. Liberty Pearl 7-4-17.
