The Beguiling Gaze of Puppies For Sale
With such variety seen in nature, few sights captivate the human heart as much as the innocent gaze of a puppy. "Puppies For Sale" - a phrase that beckons many, promising a lifetime of companionship. Yet, not all that glitters is gold. The price tag, often lower than that of a reputable breeder, might seem tempting, but what lies beneath?
The Dark Underbelly: Puppy Farms and Their Economic Implications
However, lurking in the shadows are the puppy farms. These establishments, driven by profit rather than passion, often compromise on the well-being of their charges. The conditions here can be detrimental to the physical and mental well-being of these innocent dogs. Furthermore, the hidden costs of supporting such farms, from potential medical bills to behavioural training, can be a financial burden for unsuspecting guardians.
The Psychological Impact on Puppies
Emphasis on the emotional and mental repercussions puppies face when raised in subpar conditions cannot be overstated. The lack of early socialisation and positive experiences can lead to long-term behavioural challenges, making the journey of companionship a challenging one for both the dog and their guardian.
The Ethical Choice of a Reputable Breeder
In the canine world, much like the intricate ecosystems of our planet, there are those who dedicate their lives to the betterment of the species. reputable breeders, akin to the guardians of nature, ensure that the lineage they bring forth is of the highest calibre. Their puppies, products of careful selection and love, are more likely to lead lives filled with health and happiness.
Success Stories of Ethical Breeding
Heartwarming tales of puppies raised by ethical, reputable breeders highlight the stark difference in health, temperament, and overall well-being of dogs from ethical sources compared to those from puppy farms. Such narratives serve as a beacon of hope and a testament to the benefits of making informed choices.

Ask Us A Question
Welcome to Canine Principles
Each individual has their own strengths, weaknesses and acquired skills that will help or hinder in their study. This guide is intended as an example of best practice that can easily be included in your current study routine.
In 2014, A University of Illinois Study, led by Dr. Chuck Hillman, found that as little as 20 minutes of exercise can lead to better cognition and memory, and higher scores on tests and examinations. This is great news for dog owners and something that you can definitely take advantage of as a daily walker.
Distractions can easily break our train of thought or pull us away from study all together. Find a suitable place to study that is conducive to learning. Set some time aside, ask for some privacy and turn off your phone.
Dehydration contributes towards fatigue and poor memory. A 2012 study, conducted by the universities of East London and Westminster, found that results improved by an average of 10% when students kept hydrated throughout exams.
Read Out Loud
In 2015, Professor Victor Boucher of the University of Montreal completed research that suggested you are 50% more likely to remember information that has been read aloud than reading to yourself. You can either find a quiet place to read aloud to yourself or read directly to a friend or family member.
Teach as You Go
A step beyond reading aloud is to describe the lesson to somebody else. Try and make the subject understood and invite questions. If you don’t have the answer to the question, you have a new area of understanding to explore and study which will help to further your knowledge in a given subject.
Make Notes and Diagrams
Keep a pen and paper close to hand and be ready to note down specific areas of interest. Even if you are not artistic, a quick diagram that only you understand is a great aid to the memory and allows you to process the information in a different way.
Even when you feel that you have fully understood a subject from the course material, take some time to research further by looking online, reading books or talking to others who are involved in the subject. The study group is a great place to meet like minded people who are also learning new topics.
Going back over previous course topics and modules, with the benefit of newly acquired knowledge, can help us to understand the connection between subjects. If we only focus on one subject in isolation, the connection may never be made.
Create Flash Cards
Flashcards are a great way to test your knowledge. Write a subject on one side of the card and then explain the subject on the opposite side. You can either draw the cards randomly and test your own knowledge or ask a friend to help.
Assessments will begin by advising the maximum possible score for each section and how this score can be achieved. Every module has an overall pass mark of 80%. Whilst the pass score is 80%, any assessment that scores below this will be returned with constructive feedback. Feedback is intended to describe where further marks can be achieved. You can re-submit a revised assessment to improve your score.
Assessments that score between 80% and 100% will also be returned with feedback, however, there will be no further grading as the threshold for passing the module has been met.
Each assessment will be marked and returned within 3 - 5 days of receipt by your tutor. If you have submitted an assessment and have not received any correspondence within 4 days, contact us here, via email or the study group to confirm the assessment has been received.
