Safety Notice: NEVER send a payment or deposit online before viewing the Pet to confirm the advert is genuine. Read our Covid-19 safe buying guide.
Be extra cautious with online transactions!
We encourage you to read these guidelines before buying or adopting a dog.
Carry out the research so you have the necessary knowledge of the pet you are getting. Since owning a dog is a big commitment, you should research about the breed fully to make sure it fits your current lifestyle and budget.
Take time to visit the advertiser's home to confirm if they are genuine. Do not settle for online communications and photos. UK Pets does not verify the authenticity of all advertisers. The advertiser should allow you to personally see the puppies with the puppies' mother. If they keep on giving you excuses why you could not visit their home or the address stated in the advert is not the accurate and permanent location of the pet, consider this a red flag.
Never pay anything online through money transfer companies especially if you have not personally visited the advertiser and seen the puppy, this includes deposit and delivery cost for the puppy. There is also no means to recover your money if issues arise. Before closing a deal, you must have signed a well-defined contract.
The advertiser should only release the puppies when they are 8 weeks old or older. They should be responsible enough to know that separating the puppy from the mother earlier results in medical and behavioural issues.
Cancer in dogs is prevalent; it is the leading reason for non-accidental death in canines. In fact, 50 per cent of pets reaching 8–10 years of age and beyond are likely to develop any types of cancer. This is considered true regardless of the dog breed or mixed breed.
Do dogs remember traumatic events? As intelligent creatures, canine memory is one of their remarkable features but it works differently in humans. Associative memory plays a significant role in their lives and the unpleasant experiences are retained for a long time.
Acquiring a pet for your child benefits your child’s social-emotional and cognitive development. Endenburg and Baarda stated in their research entitled ‘The Role of Pets in Enhancing Human Well-being: Effects on Child Development’ that pets can have a positive influence on your child.
