Are you thinking about bringing a new dog into your home? Here are a few points to consider to see if you are ready to bring home a furry friend. Many of us work about 30-40 hours a week, so time can be limited when it comes to spending time with our pets.

When deciding on a canine, any dog you choose should be suitable to not only your lifestyle, but your surroundings. If you live in a small condominium or apartment for example, you might consider a smaller dog. If you are not home much and would like a dog, think about bringing your dog to a dog daycare.

Puppies are very cute and cuddly and hard to resist! However, it is easy to underestimate the time required for their care. They need to be housebroken, socialized, monitored, and more. Another way to go is to adopt an adult dog who may be already trained for you. It’s essential to have your dog vaccinated, spayed or neutered along with annual vet visits. This will help them have a longer, healthier life. Inquire about health insurance and see if it is right for you.
Do you have the proper leash or harness for your dog? Walking your dog with the proper equipment can make all the difference in your canine’s comfort and yours and enhance quality time spent together. We say – yes! – you are ready for a pup. When you decide on which one, make a reservation at Morris Animal Inn for the best quality care!
