Before getting a dog, there are a few things to consider. At times, after considering the methods which follow, people have chosen not to get a dog. Please, I leave that up to you, but these are facts...

Cost

A dog is an expense that cannot be claimed on taxes. Much like people, dogs, too, have to eat. Most people spend anywhere from twenty to fifty dollars a week on dog food. This depends on the size of the dog, and how much the dog ways.

The dog will also need medical treatment at first, and that is very expensive. Of course, you cannot forget the monthly haircut and nail treatment.

Home

Just as a long-lost family members can disrupt a household, dogs can disrupt a household, too. Almost always, a dog will not be trained to go to the bathroom outside, especially when it is a new living facility for the animal. The owner of the dog will have to lay down mats the dog can use for the bathroom for a while. If being placed in the bathroom is not working, and your dog ends up going on the carpet in the house, it could get to the point where the carpet is saturated and needs to be replaced. National Carpet Mill Outlet  is a good example of a place that you could consult with if you're looking to replace your carpet.

This means a person will have to watch how long they stay out on any given nights, and they will have to hire someone to watch the dog if they go away. If not, the dog owner will come home to find an odd smell...

Climate

There are certain breeds that are prone to certain kinds of weather. For example, a belgian malinois is prone to cold weather, while other breeds are prone to warm weather. The way to solve this problem is to ask the facility representative where the dog is being purchased, and this is why it is better to purchase a dog from a professional facility, rather than off the street.

Love

Much like a human being, pets need love. A dog earner will have to take time out of everyday to spend with the dog. This mean tickling the dog, and taking the dog to the park. This will develop a great relationship, and this is also where the dog will learn right from wrong concerning the owner's teaching.

Some Type Of Insurance

A dog can run away, or, worse, get stolen. This is why it is it is best for the dog earner to purchase insurance. of course, this is another expense to include within the monthly bills. The best thing to do is speak with the veterinarian.
