It is well known that humans are dog’s best friends, and perhaps you’re always fonds of dogs whenever you visit your friend’s house or passed by the pet shop. So, one day you woke up with a thought of having a dog, but before you go and adopt or buy a dog, we’re going to have to hold you back first. Even though getting a dog is much easier than buying a house, there’s still a lot of consideration that you should know when you’re going to have a dog. If you’re confused on what the things are, make sure that you read this article as we’ve organized some of the most simple things to note before having a dog.
Besides buying a kennel and the dogfood, a dog needs a lot of tools to make things even more comfortable when you take care of them. The essentials are probably a brush, leash, dog shampoo and many more depending on what you want. Who knows, you might want to have spacious outdoor dog kennels if you want to take a bathroom break while keeping your dog inside, this way your dog won’t run away or get into accidents when you’re away for few minutes.
A dog needs a lot of attention, are you ready to give them your attention? Besides playing with it, you have to train and walk your dog as well. Potty training will save you from a headache, and when you walk your dog routinely it’ll make them happy, and you’re also getting the exercise that you need.
You also need to do a lot of research before you have a dog, certain breeds require different diets. For example, you’d be surprised how a chihuahua would probably only need two or three tablespoons of dog food for their food. Meanwhile, a golden retriever might have to eat at least two or three cups of dog food. You also have to research petshops or certain shelters that would take care of your dog when you’re away on vacation abroad or a business trip.
Adopt or to Buy
To adopt or to buy, that is the question. In our opinion adopting a dog is much better as you’re rescuing dogs and giving them a forever loving home. However, if you want a specific breed from a dog, you might not find it in the shelter, so buying is the only option if you want a particular kind.
