Deciding to purchase a dog is not a decision to make lightly. Dog ownership comes with a multitude of responsibilities including food, grooming, and health care costs, and daily exercise including playtime. You and your new dog can develop a special bond sharing many years of unconditional love and happiness that’s unconditional and almost impossible to find in any other pet. When deciding, which dog breed is the best fit, consideration should be given to the dog’s size, type of coat, required care, and their temperament. Dogs come in a variety of sizes and shapes, each one having specific grooming, exercise, and interaction needs. Choosing a dog, who requires daily walks will be unhappy in a sedentary household. Whereas, a dog with a low level of energy will be unable to keep up with an owner, who is looking for a jogging companion.

Just wait until you see what #1 costs….
