Is Your Family Ready for a Dog?
8 of 11
What do you expect from your dog?
Are you looking for a companion or protection? Do you want your dog to accompany you on trips, or do you plan to leave your dog at a kennel when you go away?
No matter what reasons you have for wanting a dog, just remember that not every type is suited for every type of person. If you like lounging around the house in your pajamas, you will want a low-maintenance dog that likes to do the same. If you want a dog that will play with you, travel with you, and will generally want to spend time with you, consider a type of sporting breed.
The right dog is out there for you; you just need to do your homework. The last thing you want to do is end up with a dog that you aren't happy with, or that isn't happy with you!
