I was just wondering.. I'm one of those people that has NEVER had/raised puppies. Always adult already trained dogs. at first,I wanted my next dog to be a puppy just because its something I've never done before and puppies are so cute! and then I started thinking about it and I'm not sure.. I don't like messes.. potty training seems like a real bitch.. I don't really know how to train a puppy, and the idea of a puppy chewing on my personal belongings makes me cringe. and oh my god potty training. Oh and next time around I'm doing the rescue route. so getting a puppy would really be a coin toss because id probably be getting a mixed dog and I have pretty specific ideas about what I want for size/temperament. Anywhoo.. For those who have raised puppies to adulthood.. Do you think its worth it? Would you have it any other way? why/why not? Pros/Cons Do you think its something everyone should experience? ' Do you think training/socialization from puppyhood always creates a steady sound well behaved dog?
