TIPS TO HELP YOU BECOME A BETTER PET PARENT
If you are considering bringing a canine companion into your life, think seriously about the commitment. Owning a dog is not just a joy and privilege but a huge responsibility as well!
This doesn’t have to mean 24/7 attention and physical proximity but you need to make your pet a part of your life.
1) RECOGNIZE THE COMMITMENT
Before making a decision that a dog is right for you, make an honest assessment – are you ready for the financial, emotional, and time commitment that owning a dog requires?
2) RETHINK YOUR LIFESTYLE
Think about the type of dog that will best suit your lifestyle. Evaluate all aspects of your family’s life – hobbies, activities, personalities etc. before choosing a breed.
3) PREPARE A LIST
What type of dog would you want? What qualities would you want in your dog? Consider size, energy levels, grooming needs, trainability, and temperament. Also, if it’s your first time, refrain from buying a fancy breed.
4) ZERO IN ON A BREED
You can finalize which breed you would want based on the list of qualities you want in your pet. Do some research like attend dog shows, talk to dog trainers or breeders, friends and family who own a particular breed you are interested in. This will give you a better idea.
5) CONTACT ETHICAL BREEDERS AND /OR DOG TRAINERS
Get referrals to responsible breeders or trainers. Do not hesitate to ask questions and clear whatever doubts you may have. Get right information about the breed and breeder’s practices.
6) PAPER WORK
Get the paper work right and make sure you have complete information about the breed, fees, health of the dog etc. from the breeder.
7) USHERING YOUR NEW COMPANION HOME
Buy the necessary requisites and toys for your little friend. Purchase food recommended by a certified trainer or vet. Prepare in advance by keeping collar, leash, toys and other things so that your pet’s transition into your home will be smooth one.
