Choosing a Dog - Should I Get a Dog?

While emotional questions such as 'what do I want my dog to look like' and 'what kind of things can I do with my dog' are important, a rational approach is also required.

Asking yourself a few questions and writing down the answers will help you decide whether you're ready to become a pet parent.

Visit your local PETstock store to chat about the pro's and con's of different breeds, depending on your situation.

Choosing young dogs and senior dogs

If you've asked yourself all of these questions and decided on a breed that will suit your family, another consideration is whether you'll be happier with a young pup or an older dog.

The fun and cuteness factors of bringing a puppy home can sometimes overshadow just how much work a youngster can be.

In addition to their breed traits and how they will fit within your lifestyle, you'll also need to be prepared for the duties of teaching your dog basic commands and manners, toilet training and puppy-proofing your home.

I think I'm ready to own a dog

If you think you're ready to own a dog, consider choosing a rescue dog. Adopting is a great way to find a dog suited to your family and lifestyle, because you'll get to chat with someone who knows their personality and background. Adopting offers many rewards for new pet parents and can save a life!
