Is a Dog the Right Pet for you?

Posted on December 22, 2017 at 12:34 pm

In the UK, we are a nation of pet lovers. So many people have dogs, and they do make wonderful pets. However, you also need to bear in mind that a dog is a lot of work. Children grow up and eventually become less work. Dogs, however, will rely on your forever.

Before you decide to get a dog, make sure you fully understand how much work it is going to be. Think carefully about how much time you could commit to a dog. Would you have the time to walk it? Will you be able to spend lots of time with your pet and enjoy its company?

If you work, you will also need to make sure you hire a dog sitter, walker, or send your pet to a doggy daycare facility. This can be a great way for your pet to socialise and many dogs love going to them, but it will also be a big financial commitment.
