If the thought of having a puppy in your life appeals to you, are you ready to make such an important commitment. It is important to remember that bringing a puppy into your world is never something to take in a light manner. From making sure your new puppy has all the care it needs to showing it love each day, you have to be ready for this.
So, will you change your life for a new puppy?
Making Your Home Livable for a Puppy
In your efforts to bring a puppy home, you want to be sure your home is livable for that little one before you ever get a dog. With this in mind, think about your current living arrangement.
Among the thoughts to cover:
· Is your home conducive to having a puppy?
· Are you home enough to take care of a puppy?
· If you have young children at home, will they be a good match for your puppy?
· Do you have the needed finances to care for a puppy now and over the years as it matures?
By being sure a puppy is right for your home, you stand a better chance of making this a success for both the dog and you.
In looking at your current home setup, review the following:
· Are there areas of your home where a puppy could get injured?
· Will you have the right temperature conditions for your puppy? This means not being too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter.
· If the puppy tends to bark often, will it upset any neighbors?
· Do you tend to move often? An example here would be those in the military. Many have to move every three years or so. If you will be moving often, how will your puppy and eventually adult dog handle such moves?
In making sure your home is livable for a puppy, don’t leave any stone unturned.
