Dog Lovers: Your Ultimate Guide in Dog Care Owning a dog takes a big responsibility and it can be costly and time-consuming at the same time, so you need to know if you are ready and capable of having a pet, but it is fun and rewarding once you get used to it. Owning a dog will eventually create a special bond between your pet and your family, so it is considered a lifetime commitment. It is essential to be prepared for all the challenges and responsibilities you have to face involved in dog ownership because any sudden change in ownership can be traumatic for you and your dog. Owning a dog means providing not only food, water, shelter, and medical care but also the love and attention your dog truly deserves. Owning a dog means spending an average of $800 to $1,000 per year for basic supplies, food, and veterinary care as well as additional cost emergency care expenses. There are many breeds of dog so find one that you are interested in, one that can fit your needs and lifestyle. For instance, get a greyhound because of its laidback attitude, willing to meet new people or strangers without anxiety or stress and are naturally loving and sweet. Before adopting a dog, you can ask some recommendations from friends, relatives, and a veterinarian. A veterinarian is considered as the best source of reliable information when asking about a specific breed of dog’s character, attitude or personality as they have undergone a thorough study of animal behavior, and they have the experience handling different types of dogs. It is important to prepare all basic supplies before bringing your new dog at home such as ID tag, dog collar, rabies tag, leash, water and food bowls, comfortable dog bed and toys. Once you finally have chosen a specific type of dog for adoption, it is highly important to go through your home and search out hazards so you can get them out of the way. When it comes to choosing a dog food, it is essential to choose those with “complete” or “balanced” on their labels and also consult a veterinarian for recommendation. If you will be adopting a puppy, prepare yourself being disturbed because just like human babies, puppies also cry in the middle of the night. But never soothe your puppy in your own bed, instead, set up a puppy’s home in a kennel that can be closed or an enclosed space with a comfortable bed. Housetraining should start from the very first day you bring your dog at home, leashing your puppy to start getting to know your home and his neighborhood.What Has Changed Recently With Resources?
