1. Puppies can’t control their bladders overnight until they are at least four months old. Until then, cover the floor around the puppy’s bed with newspapers.
2. Dogs are omnivorous. They need more than just meat to flourish.
3. People with more than one dog shouldn’t try to treat them all as equals. Because pack position is important to a dog, this only encourages jealousy games.
4. Dogs chew up your underwear because it smells like you.
5. One in every three US families owns one or more dogs.
6. A one-year-old dog is physically as mature as a 15 year-old human.
7. Dogs’ internal clocks are really magnificent. They know when it’s time for you to arrive home, feed them, or go to bed if you are normally on a schedule.
8. Brush your dog 3 times a week in the spring, and you’ll have a summer free from shedding.
9. When teaching a puppy to come, begin by getting down to his level so he will not be encouraged to jump up on you.
10. If your dog reacts anti-socially toward visitors, put her in another room until she calms down. When you let her out, ignore her. This forces your dog to go to the visitors for social activity.
Inscription on the Monument of a Newfoundland Dog
Near this spot are deposited the remains of one who
possessed Beauty without Vanity,
Strength without Insolence,
Courage without Ferocity,
and all the Virtues of Man,
without his Vices.
This Praise, which would be unmeaning
Flattery if inscribed over human
ashes is but a just tribute to the Memory
of Boatswain,a Dog.

1. All dogs can be traced back 40 million years ago to a
weasel-like animal called the Miacis which dwelled in trees and dens. The
Miacis later evolved into the Tomarctus, a direct forbear of the genus Canis,
which includes the wolf and jackal as well as the dog.
2. Ancient Egyptians revered their dogs. When a pet dog would die,
the owners shaved off their eyebrows, smeared mud in their hair, and mourned
aloud for days.
3. During the Middle Ages, Great Danes and Mastiffs were sometimes
suited with armor and spiked collars to enter a battle or to defend supply
4. Pekingese and Japanese Chins were so important in the ancient
Far East that they had their own servants and were carried around trade routes
as gifts for kings and emperors. Pekingese were even worshipped in the temples
of China for centuries.

On a sunny, hot day in Mako, Hungary over 1500 great dogs and their owners competed for awards and recognition, many of our breeders were there to show off their wonderful dogs, with many others travelling internationally to attend.
There were over 50 different breeds, from the Hungarian Komandor and Pumi, to the more lavish beautiful English Cocker Spaniel and English Bullmastiff and well as the ever popular Golden Retriever.
Here are a few of many photographs taken.
The regulations of each country regarding the transportation of live animals varies greatly. However, our 10 years experience of shipping dogs to over 80 countries makes us your best option to have your dog shipped. We fully comply with the regulations of each destination and make our dog's well-being the number one priority at all times. Our dogs get food and water during their travel and their crates are cleaned in an animal holding facility. They travel in a climate controlled room on the airplane, which insures that they are effected by the journey as little as possible.
At Euro Puppy, every dog comes with an ISO compatible microchip ($30 value) at no extra cost. Microchipping is now an international standard and is no more painful than a vaccination. The microchip can normally be detected between the shoulder blades of the dog. In the US, AVID chips are used and AVID chip readers will not detect the ISO compatible microchips. Please make sure your reader can read ISO compatible chips.
You will find our service to provide great value for money, as our prices include:
You get the all this, plus a fury little thing you'll love for life.
Airlines have strict regulations regarding the dimensions and quality of the crates allowed on board. The crate must be escape and leak-proof. It must be ventilated on at least two sides and must provide enough room for the dog to stand up and turn around. We make sure to provide the right crate ($75 value) for your puppy at no extra cost.
In addition, the official, on duty veterinarian at the airport checks each dog to make sure it is healthy and fit to travel. This is how all of our puppies are double checked before they travel.
