If you are still on the fence about adopting, make sure you ask yourself a lot of questions and do research because you aren’t just adding a dog to your family, you are adding a family member.
Deciding to add a puppy to your family is a decision not to be taken lightly and when you are trying to make your decision, keep a few things in mind.
Do your research
One of the biggest decisions you will have to make is what type of dog you are interested in having for a pet. Whether you are going to a breeder or a shelter, it is important to find a breed that will match your lifestyle. Every breed has a personality all its own and knowing in advance what that exactly is could save you a lot of trouble later on.
Make sure you have the time
Just like having a child, adopting a dog means you take on the responsibility of a living being whose needs most often come before yours. That means giving up more time for your pet. You have to plan ahead if you are going to take a trip or be away from home for long periods of time. If you don’t have the time to give, you may not be ready to have a dog.
If you have children bring them with you when picking out your puppy:
If you have children, find a dog who loves your children and doesn’t just tolerate them. To make your decision, if you have found a puppy to love, schedule a visit with the dog to see how it interacts with your kids. The behavior you should look for are ears back, tail wagging and a sense that the dog wants to be around your children more than anything. Take you time with this step because it is a very crucial decision. During the puppy-pick process, we schedule visits at week eight so you will be able to see which puppy interacts best with your family.
Puppy training requires a lot of patience and time
It is really important to remember that puppies are babies and they need a lot of time and attention and training more so than an adult dog would.
Remember, they become part of the family
The most important thing to know before you adopt is that soon enough you will wonder how you ever lived without him or her. Our pets become our family and we get attached probably more quickly than we expected. This means that you need to make sure you are bringing the right dog home because there is usually no turning back when it’s love at first sight.
