What dog breeds are the most expensive/cheap to keep and why?
Keeping a dog is not always as cheap as it might seem and I was wondering if some breeds are more expensive to keep than others. Including everything from buying the dog, to vets costs, to training classes to grooming, amount of food, toys and replacing chewed furniture!
You might be surprised but other than food costs a Great Dane is an exceptionally easy dog for which to care.
They are large and eat alot of food but do not require alot of exercise and are generally considered lazy as adults. They require little grooming aside from the ocassionaly bath and nail clipping and don't seen to shed very badly.
Food costs can be considerable but there are alot of ways to save in that department.
I find Poodles and any other dog that requires many "hair cuts" and grooming to be the most expensive to keep.
Well, you are always going to have regular vet bills for shots and checkups, no matter what breed of dog you have. Outdoor dogs such as Huskies, require a dog house; that is not too costly. It's always a good idea to have a fenced-in yard if possible, so your pup has a place to run and play. Dogs which need grooming can get much more expensive. I previously owned a Bischon and while he ate much less than a large dog, he made up for it in grooming fees. If you train your dog and give him or her its own toys and rawhides to play with and chew on you should not have a problem with your pup chewing on furniture. If you do catch him, sternly tell him/her "no bite" and give the dog his toy instead. It won't be long before he gets the idea. I've never had a dog go after my furniture because I always provided him/her with toys.
