Why get a dog?

The decision to get a dog is one that cannot be made with

out plenty of thought and discussion.


When you take that step to have a dog as part of your life, it must be made with

an open mind to the hard work, commitment to its welfare,

training and the dogs life long needs. The financial commitment could be for over 10 years,

feeding, veterinary costs, training, kennelling/day care is all

about money. However the most important part of the

decision, is about you and not the dog that may become

part of your family.


Are you prepared to alter how you live your life? Become

a teacher/trainer, educate your dog to have a fulfilled

happy life. Alter your day to day living, social life, work

schedules and holidays. Changes to your home, even

alter your car!


In making the decision to get a dog, do ask yourself, is it

an emotional decision? One of companionship?

Unquestionable love and affection? A childhood treasured

memory of a dog? A certain breed type? Just wanting cute

puppy? Doing a good deed by rehoming a dog?

Is it a sole decision or one made by the family?

Wanting something doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do!


Having a dog in your life for the right reasons can be a

joy and enrich our lives, however if the decision is taken for

the wrong reasons it can be come an unhappy and

stressful existence for both dog and owner.
