Getting a Pet

Are you planning to get a pet? It is not a small responsibility. You have to think twice of your decision

Are you planning to get a pet? It is not a small responsibility. You have to think twice of your decision, if suppose you adopt one puppy dog, then the realities of the responsibilities a dog entails, to whether your budget allows for necessities such as vet bills and possibly utilizing a place like dog day care, and dog boarding there is much to take into consideration prior to taking the leap into dog ownership.

If suppose you are adopting a one dog, than first check, are you ready for the responsibility of a dog? Who will feed him? Who will clean up after him? Who will walk him, love him, and play with him? Who will care for him when he gets sick, gets fleas, or is naughty? Who will give him attention everyday?

Does anyone dislike dogs? Is anyone nervous or afraid of dogs? Do you have very small children? A yes answer to any of these means a dog probably is not right for your household right now.

Do you have other pets? Will a new dog be compatible? Is your neighborhood dog-friendly? Are there dog parks or trails nearby? Places to walk and play? Do you have vet services nearby?

Can you afford the expense of owning a dog? Vaccinations, vet bills, grooming, toys, food, etc - it all adds up. Are you home most of the time? Are you away for work or holidays a lot? DO you have time for a dog?

Does your research on the right dog breed for you - different dog breeds have different needs and personalities; the biggest dog is not always going to be the one that requires the most exercise, for example. Do not make an emotional decision. Shelters are heartbreaking places - you will want to rescue every dog. Emotions must be left at the door - so that the right decision is made which will ultimately be better for you - and for the dog.

What kind of services will you utilise to help care for your dog? Will you require the help of a dog walker, a pet minder or kennel when you vacation, or a facility like dog care on a day to day basis?

Ultimately, the most important thing to remember is that a dog (or any pet for that matter) is a lifelong commitment. They are coming into your home as a beloved furry family member. If you are not prepared for the animal to be an integral and loved part of the family, don’t adopt.
