Is Your Family Ready for a Dog?
9 of 11
Does a dog fit into your future plans?
Buying a dog is sometimes an impulsive decision, and unfortunately many people don't think about the long-term commitment involved in owning one.
Do you have extensive travel plans in the future? Are you looking to start a family? Are you starting a new career? Although a dog can fit into any of these scenarios, it's important to know where your priorities lie. Are you really committed to having a dog, or are there other things that are more important to you at the moment? You don't want to get a dog only to have to give him up a few years later because you got an amazing job offer overseas, or because your dream apartment won't permit him.
That being said, if you really have your heart set on getting a furry companion, you'll find a way to work around any obstacles that may arise in the future.
