So you have made up your mind to gift yourself the awesomeness that is a dog. Now comes the tricky part when you are bombarded with the breeder ads. Trust me the marketers, e-commerce and pet grooming sites would do a helluva job to capture your eye to the pedigree dogs but hear it out from this dog:
It never is the breed, but the loyal loving heart that determines how cool a dog is and believe me every dog is a loyalist. Humans, however, need training. Be a hero and adopt a dog!
Consider adopting. Adopt a dog India.
Remember, House + Dog = Home
Do you really want a dog?
Well, if you ask me, yes is the answer always. But then, getting a dog is a full-time responsibility. Yes, you are going to have make great furry memories but there are also little things that go under the radar – taking your dog for daily walks, the health check-ups, vaccinations etc., to name a few. The most important of them being investing your time, sharing your love…
You didn’t buy your lover, your best friend, your spouse so why buy your best friend?
Why do you want a dog?
Every other week at Dog with Blog, we get requests from people who are relocating overseas to help them find a home for their pets. As irate as it makes us, we can’t help but wonder if these people would do the same for their kids? When you get a dog, you get it for life. It may mean relocation, transfers, weddings, divorces, kids and everything in between but must not you abandon the dog. Are you getting a dog to be a fun playmate for the children, or for accompanying an older person on quiet walks? Do you want him to go jogging with you, or is he going to be guarding the house?
Say to yourself aloud, I am not getting a fitness app, a security guard or a babysitter but a dog. A family member. If this thought has sunk in, you are ready for a dog.
Is it the right time to adopt a dog?
For a homeless dog, it’s always a good time to be adopted. But don’t let him down by bringing him home, and then deciding that it’s simply not the right time for you. Dogs take lots of care and attention – and that means time – especially when they first come home.Is this the right time in your life to take on this huge commitment?
What kind of dog do you want?
This has more to do with your lifestyle and the accommodation you can provide the dog.You may come across a mastiff for adoption but, you live in an apartment with no open spaces around. Perhaps you should rather adopt a smaller dog. Whichever dog you adopt, you need to provide him the open space, exercise and a relatively cooler temperature. Try befriending pups or dogs near your home, believe me, it is far easier than it sounds. Who knows, you might find your best friend there.
