When Choosing A Puppy

Updated on September 28, 2017

How do I know which puppy is for me?

When choosing a new family member, there's a lot of questions. What do I need to know? How do I decide?

Your newest family member.

What intrigues you when choosing him? What can and can't you handle?

How does he act?

If you are having a hard time deciding, watch how the dog reacts to you. You don't want to jump into something you cannot handle (I have been in this situation.) Is he hyper or calm? Aggressive? All of these are very important questions. Think about your personality with the dogs'. You don't want your personalities to collide.

All of the things to consider

What should you consider? Honestly, there's a lot.

  • Do you have kids? If so, you should think about how the dog reacts to your children as well. You don't want a dog that is aggressive to children.
  • Do you have the time for the dog? If not, you probably should re-think. Especially an inside dog. They take a lot of work. They are a responsibility. Your dog becomes part of your family, they need to be treated as so.
  • The temperament.
  • Life span

How much does a dog cost?

Depending on where you go, some dogs can be quite expensive. If you're not looking for an expensive family member you can look around town for 'free puppy signs' or go to shelters. Sometimes they give dogs away or they have them for a cheaper price than a lot of pet shops.

You have to consider the breed, usually mixed breeds cost less, or are given away.

On another note, you have to consider all the things you have to buy for your new family member:

  • Food.
  • Dog shampoo
  • A bed
  • Leashes and collars
  • Vet trips
  • Flea medicine
  • Shots.
  • And so much more.

There's a lot to consider. You just have to put the time and effort in, but in the end, they are so worth it!
