Have you thought to yourself that you’d like yourself a dog, or a puppy? There’s more to having a dog than just bringing it for walks, playing fetch and warm snuggles. Here’s what you need to consider before getting a dog.
You need to have time for your dog. While dogs can be left to their own devices for a while, a healthy relationship with your dog requires you to spend time and engage with it. You’ll also have to take into account a proper diet and routine visits to the veterinarian. Not only do these take time, these will cost you some money as well. A dog should get the best life it can get from its owners.
Question yourself why do you want a dog, as you will have to put their needs before yours for at least ten more years. The decision to get a dog will be a life changing one.
