So you're interested in getting a dog or cat. Perhaps your kids are hounding you for a dog. Or maybe there's an area on the sofa that really must be filled by a cute package of hair. There are so benefits to running a pet - but - with dog or cat possession comes a lot of responsibility.
So, you are probably asking, what exactly are the drawbacks? Pups and puppies need a great deal of attention, time and training, not forgetting food, accessories, pet medications and veterinary attention. If your family is on an extremely tight budget, or simply is too active to give your dog the face-time it needs, a dog may not be the best choice. If you are considering a dog or puppy as your loved ones pet, be sure you can afford its' keep, and that you have enough time to spend training, hanging out and using your dog.
