LET SALLY SAID SO! HELP YOU GET THE PICK OF THE LITTER THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
The ASPCA estimates that 3.3 million dogs enter shelters in the United States each year, and approximately one-third of these dogs are surrendered by their owners (https://www.aspca.org/animal-homelessness/shelter-intake-and-surrender). There is a significant spike in owner surrender cases during the early months of the year, and it’s all thanks to the Christmas puppy craze.
Buying a loved one a puppy for Christmas may seem like a great idea. There isn’t much that can beat a child’s excitement—or really any dog-lover’s excitement—when they find a cute little fur ball waiting for them under the tree on Christmas morning. With a bow on the collar and that new-puppy smell, the new addition promises a future of unconditional love and friendship.
However, the idea doesn’t always live up to the reality. Soon, the weight of responsibility sinks in, and the puppy’s true personality begins to show.
To help stem off impromptu puppy purchases around the holidays, many shelters and humane societies will encourage people to purchase a gift certificate instead. Who can blame them? After the 2017 holidays, one shelter in North Dakota received 700 pets while an adoption group in Texas received 400. Georgia and Pennsylvania shelters reported similar spikes in the same months https://www.peta.org/blog/shelters-full-unwanted-present-animals-after-holidays/
At Sally Said So! we believe Christmas puppies are perfectly fine as long as families take time to prepare. Purchasing a pet should never be a spur-of-the-moment decision. There needs to be a plan in place, and our Pre-Purchase Puppy Consultation Service should be a part of that plan.
Our experts are here to help make sure the dog or puppy you choose will complement your family’s dynamic and lifestyle. Can you accommodate a high-maintenance breed? How big will the puppy get? Have you thought of everything the puppy might need? Perhaps the biggest question is: are you prepared to tackle tough behavioral problems?
Behavioral problems are the number one reason puppies are dropped off or returned to shelters. The trainers at Sally Said So! can provide the most up-to-date advice and dog training resources to handle whatever curve ball your puppy decides to throw at you.
There aren’t many Christmas gifts that require a 10-20 year commitment, but you’ll find that a dog will absolutely give more than he receives. Just make sure your Christmas puppy isn’t grouped in with this year’s gift returns by preparing and taking advantage of our Pre-Purchase Puppy Consultation Service.
The trainers at Sally Said So! are waiting to help you welcome the newest member of your family this holiday season.

Dog Anxiety Training
Sally Said So hits the news about what to do during the PETDEMIC
They're at your feet while you work. With the kids while they play, and probably getting extra pats, treats and walks right now. "The dog thinks it's great. We're, 'hey I get to play with my dog all day,' but there's this underlying thing going on between the human and the dog and that's, yeah ...
RALEIGH (WTVD) -- The COVID-19 pandemic has allowed pet owners a chance to be home much more with their pets and many used the time home as an opportunity to adopt an animal.
Dog owners say their furry friends love them constantly being at home amid this pandemic, but some are worried how dogs will react when social distancing guidelines and stay-at-home orders are no more. Pets have no idea of the coronavirus pandemic, so Sally Said So!
DOG TRAINING BOOTCAMP
Our technique is simple and gets the job done. We actually come into your home and set up your place to be successful. Every week we come with packets to follow so there is no question as to what you should be doing. We make sure your pup is set up for success. During the training, we teach everything from different areas of the house so they will be trusted. We make them earn their freedom back. It sounds strict, but honestly, the dogs love it, they get lots of love attention, training and treats. They also get exercise and a routine which takes anxiety down and happiness up. When dogs know exactly what you want of them, your home is a lot happier and the dog is comfortable in their own skin, leaving the “bad” behaviors in the past.
Different Kinds of Dog Training
If you have a new pup, Sally Said So puppy classes are the ultimate way to socialize your puppy to other dogs and people in a safe and controlled environment.

What Our Customers Say!
Puppy Training and why it’s important to start early.
Puppies hardly retain anything at such a young age, but with consistency they will eventually learn. One of the things we have found is that when you limit their freedom, they are more prone to taking on things and learning fast.
It’s important to watch their behaviors and look for any aggression or anxiety before it becomes second nature. All dogs need a leader and at this young age, they yearn for it even if they don’t know it. We do puppy training or puppy preschool. 🙂
This is the stage where they use their teeth to explore, to play and to express dominance. This is also the stage that when things happen, it could stick with them forever. Puppies need to be socialized immediately after they get their vaccines in order to get used to loud noises, other people, other dogs and even cats. If you don’t take this step, life can get pretty hard for you and your pup in the future. Puppies are a lot of responsibility and lot’s needs to be done in the early years. We can help. Call us for a consultation or a schedule of classes.
