Based on an average life span of 11 years, the cost of owning a dog is $13,350. So let’s at this point just agree that owning is dog is quite the financial and time commitment! I really don’t want to discourage people from getting a dog but here are just a few things you family unit should consider…
OK these are only a few of the things that popped in to my head this morning as I wrote this little note… Dogs are not easy… Not every child, family or individual needs to own a dog and trust me I see it daily where folks dont think through this decision and well everyone in the family ends up in tears as they drop the dog off at the shelter. If I could leave you with just one piece of advise… It would be simple:
Think outside the box and be that person that hires a dog trainer before you get a dog. Let a professional talk to your family about this decision from every direction before you just go out and pick the first cute (by the way they are all cute) puppy you see int the window…..
What should you do if you find a stray dog…microchipping your pets is a must!
