I’m pretty sure that my family is ready to adopt a dog, but my wife isn’t fully convinced that this is the right time. How can we decide?
Before adopting a dog, here are a few important questions to ask yourself:
• Do you really want a dog? Do you want to wake up early on a cozy Sunday morning and take him out in the rain?
• Are you ready to spend as much time as you can with him to make sure he gets his exercise and training?
• Are you prepared for the lifestyle impact, the financial impact, and grooming considerations?
• Are you prepared to clean up various messes and to waking up in the middle of the night to care for a sick dog?
Remember, when you adopt a dog, you’re making a long-term commitment to care for your new family member. And, in return for giving it a forever home, you’ll have a loving companion for many years to come.
