Are You Ready To Get A Dog?
Do you love watching cute dog videos on social media and feel like getting one? Well, cute videos aren’t going to take full responsibility of a pup but you have to. Of course a dog is a blessing to a family, however taking care of one is no easy task. So here are requirements you should meet before you bring a dog home.
Consider what breed fits your lifestyle
If you are living alone in an apartment, then a large malamute isn’t going to fit in. also, if you are an athlete and want to take your dog jogging with you, a pug isn’t going to be able to keep up. Consider the amount of hours you are going to spend away from home, the space you have at home, if you have a backyard, the other pets you have if any etc.
Care and safety
Just like a kid, dogs too get sick, need proper nutrition and need to be kept safe from hazards. Look around for ‘dog-doctors’ who have been through proper veterinarian courses and are well trained around dogs. Do your research and choose one that has experience and is close to your home. Sometimes, you might have to change places as your pup might not be comfortable around certain vets. You can also educate yourself on the nutrition they need, what food are good and not good for them, any dental health issues, grooming expenses etc. Link here https://www.vetprac.com.au/practical-veterinary-courses/ provide a good knowleged about veterinarian course that will give a best results.
Everyone else is onboard
After you’ve found the perfect breed for you and also found a vet who has been through vet training courses, if you family is against you on bringing a dog home, then it is not going to work. You need to talk to everyone and see if they are equally committed on this new addition to the family. Dogs need love and affection and if your family isn’t providing any, they feel lonely and this is very unhealthy. They all should know how to treat the dog, what to feed and what not to feed, what toys to buy etc. You have the time to train a pup
