Consider the big questions:
1. Is this dog for you?
2. Will this dog suit your lifestyle?
3. Where will it live?
4. Is it a good fit for your home?
5. Will this dog adapt to new things well or will it have to adjust quickly?
The answers to these questions may mean the difference between a happy and fulfilling life with a dog, or one that is full of frustration and heartache. If you’re considering getting a puppy, here are some guidelines to keep in mind.
1. What kind of dog would I like to have? Consider the size, shedding potential and exercise needs. Do you want a big, active breed that demands long walks every day? Or a small petite breed who won’t need much daily exercise at all?
2. Where will my dog sleep at night? If you don’t have a yard and live in an apartment, you may not be able to get a large dog
3. Who’s going to pay for food? Vet bills? Dog supplies? If you’re buying the puppy, the cost of initial vet exams, vaccinations, deworming medications and neutering or spaying can add up very quickly.
4. Is my home ready for a dog? Do you have a fence? If not, your new pup may need to stay in the yard when it’s outside unless you plan on walking him or her several times a day. However, this means extra responsibility and inconvenience on your part. You’ll also need to make provisions for the pup when you are away.
5. What am I willing to do? Dogs need love, structure and limits. Willingness to provide them with these things is important for both of your happiness”
The upsides of owning a puppy
Whether you are a new owner or an experienced one, you’ll find the right puppy for you.
You’ll have to decide whether it’s the best for your family.
And, of course, you’ll have to decide if it’s the right dog for you.
Before buying a puppy, make sure to ask these questions:
1) Is this dog small enough to fit in your car?
2) Is this puppy white or black?
3) Is this puppy on the site already?
4) How will we breed this breed?
5) Will we be feeding it all of its life?
These questions, and others, can help you determine what kind of pet is right for your family. Whether it’s a big dog (like German Shepherds), or a small pet (like Chihuahuas), puppies come in all sizes and shapes. Plus, puppies come in all colors and textures—they can be white like Snowball or black like Taz. If you’re looking for something different from what’s out there, consider an unusual breed. For example, there’s no question that Yorkies are cute—but they’re not common enough to give them away in bulk to anyone who looks at them wrong! But whatever kind of puppy that sounds like the perfect match—and let’s face it: Puppies could be anything!—it’s important to know how to choose one before you ever go near one! Pick your pup carefully before going down that rabbit hole because puppies are expensive animals; they take up a lot of space; they require lots of attention; and they require food and water both every day and sometimes more frequently than people realize. So if money is tight, don’t buy your first dog just because she’s small! A good rule of thumb is that if the estimate says her weight should equal 2-3 pounds (such as 2 lbs., 4 oz.), then she’ll likely be around 6 pounds (or more). However much more she weighs than 3 lbs., she won’t necessarily look tiny when she grows up! The idea here isn’t only about size; remember that puppies come in all different sizes from tiny rambunctious ones who really need their space to run about full speed around the house to big lovable ones who will have lots of time for cuddles with their owners instead of
The downsides of owning a puppy
Puppies seem to be such a good idea when you think about the experience of owning one. They are cute, they like to play and what’s not to like about them? But there are some downsides as well if you really want to buy a puppy . Firstly, puppies need lots of attention and time which means that you have to sacrifice a lot of time from your schedule for this new family member. In addition, the dog requires training and they need to be taken out on a walk at least once or twice a day. Getting a puppy is also going to cost you a lot of money as well! Puppies are expensive and you will have to buy many things in the beginning. For example, you will need to buy a crate for when your puppy is left alone at home, food bowl, toys and of course you will also have to pay for medicine if your dog gets sick or injured. You are not only giving money away but you are also giving time!
For this reason, it is very important that you are 100% sure that you want to own a puppy before you buy one. This article aims to describe the downsides of owning a puppy in order for you to be able to make an informed decision about getting a pet.

I’ve always found it interesting that so many people seem to be so surprised when they discover that puppies are not just adorable and fluffy, but also very expensive and not all that easy to maintain. There is a lot of confusion in this area, especially when it comes to the responsibility of parents and whether they can afford the cost.
The answer is yes. Puppies are just like any other pet; we raise them on our own dime, pay for everything except vaccinations, food, litter boxes and most importantly, love. Puppies can cost anywhere from $1,000+ each depending on breed and location. And while you may think that your mini-robot should be able to fend for itself on its own with a little digging around in the yard or finding things to do inside on its own (which is what most people think about dogs), there are a number of reasons why you may need to take extra steps when bringing home your new dog:
• You may have already decided that your current dog is too much work for you
• You want a pet who will make sure you’re happy
• You’re tired of cleaning up after your previous dog or would like something new
• You’re tired of cleaning up after your previous pet (or would like something different)
All of these factors contribute to increased costs for spaying/neutering, vaccinations, food and other expenses associated with bringing home a puppy — but the end result is a happier new family member who makes you happy too. Aside from those situations where there’s no way around it (we’ve all heard the stories), there are many ways you can help make owning your puppy as stress-free as possible: consider getting one before they get too big . Many puppies grow quickly in their first few months but don’t reach their full size until later on in their first year’s life; in this case it’s important not to keep them small so they don’t get overwhelmed by the changes in environment. They will also fare better if healthy puppies are available right away rather than waiting until they’ve grown into an adult dog. Decide whether to mail-order your puppy or purchase one at a local animal shelter . If possible choose a puppy whose parents came from an animal shelter which has experience with puppies; this way you can support that shelter and make sure that they spend more time with new puppies (and less time caring for sick ones).
