Before You Adopt a Pet

Adopting a pet for lifetime should be fun and joyful. A furry friend brings love and adventure and friendship. And they bring new household chores too.

In my hub I give some tips to help you make good choices, and properly prepare your home for its newest member. Bring on the unconditional love, people! But before that here are some facts that you must consider.

  • Talk with your family members.
  • Investing time and energy
  • Is your Pet suits your home and lifestyle

Talk with your family members.

Talk to family members & children’s that are they really want to bring someone at home? What is their preferable choice? Adopt a Cat or dog? Share your likes and dislikes and ask your self about it again and again. Because it’s a matter of taking responsibility of a new life and dogs or cats may need a lot of attention and training.

Investing time and energy

Ask yourself two simple questions.

1. How much time do you have to invest in a dog?

2. How much energy do you want to invest in a dog?

Learn about pet care. Kitten and puppy need extra care. They need regular feeding, playing time, exercise, and trips to the bathroom. It take extra time to obedience train your pets. In pets whole lifetime he’ll rely on you to fulfill his every need.

Are Pet suits your home and lifestyle?

Make a little research before you take someone at home. Try to learn which breed matches your family’s lifestyle. Pets may be aggressive sometimes or high-strung than others. Young children may hurt puppies and kittens, or get hurt by their nails or by pet’s teeth too.

You can also ask yourself that why you ask a pet? By answering this you will get an idea that what type or size of pet will be suitable for you. And by this you’ll be able to choose the dog that best matches your lifestyle and expectations. Carefully & seriously consider your own lifestyle and the things you’d like to do with your pet (especially dog). Do they match?

You can stock up on supplies, food and toys before you bring a pet to your life as well as home. Choose the right refuge and place for the rest of your pet. Make sure that your pet feel comfortable and welcome at your home. Create a systematic schedule to share responsibility for caring for your pet.  When and who going to walk the dog or feed the cat. Though my questions may seem fairly obsessive but the answers to all of these questions can guide you toward the right type of pet. Love your pet from bottom of your heart and take care of them. Pets can understand your love and they can reply as well. Give them time, which will foster relationships between your new furry friend and everyone in the house.

I would really love to have a dog. But commitment is kind of a big thing and like you said, it depends on how much time and energy we are willing to give to them. If we can't make that kind of commitment, we might as well forget idea.

Cats are cute too but I am allergic to the fur.

ohh... i don't think you should worry too much about that. Puppy can be easily trained and they will definitely go back to the same place every time. Unless you are worried that you have to collect the poo when taking a stroll outside.
