Two chicks dog grooming – Part 1
When you consider having a dog or two, you have to ask yourself two things – can you do it? and do you want to?
The answer to the first question depends on a whole variety of factors. Do you want to spend your time with a dog? Do you have enough room for a dog? Do you have time to take a dog out and about?
These are all important factors to consider.
Do you have time?
Having a dog will mean additional commitment – you will have to do more housework, give it more attention and be more patient and understanding.
You might think that you don’t have enough time, but the truth is that you probably do. You have a life too.
Do you have room for a dog?
If you live in a large house then this is a non-issue. In an apartment you have to be really careful about space – there might not be enough.
Having sd that, if you live in a large house, you could buy a bigger one. Or have a dog-friendly apartment instead.
Is your house big enough for two dogs?
If you live in a small apartment, chances are it will be a bit cramped. However, you can always make sure that the bedroom is big enough for a dog bed.
Do you have enough space to house your dog?
If your dog needs to go out for a walk, you need to think about what you need to do before your dog gets loose.
It is important that you have space for your dog to run about freely – this is going to be in your garden or on a walk-about.
Do you have a fenced in garden?
If you don’t have enough space for your dog to roam free, or if you don’t want it to get too far out, you can either get a fenced in garden, or get a bigger one.
The bottom line is that a garden needs to be large enough for your dog to have room to run about.
If you don’t have enough space in your garden for your dog, you should consider living somewhere that does.
It is possible to buy a property with a large garden, and then rent it out to a family with a couple of dogs, if you don’t want to invest in buying your own property.
How much does having a dog cost?
It’s true that dogs are expensive. But what you spend on your dog doesn’t just end up as a dog – it goes into the household too.
In some ways having a dog is like being part of a family.
How much do you want a dog?
This is a decision for you to make, but I can offer you some guidance.
You don’t want to have a dog that costs a fortune. It will mean having to spend more money on it. You may feel that you will be a better person if you spend money on a dog.
You don’t want to have a dog that costs a lot to keep – you may even end up having to get it insured.
This is an important consideration – you don’t want to have a dog that is expensive to look after.
You can always make your life cheaper by getting a cheap one.
A cheap dog is going to cost you less in the long run.
What are you going to use your dog for?
This should be a major consideration, but not because you have to spend a lot on your dog – it is because you want a dog that is appropriate for you.
What do you want your dog for?
Do you want it to be a pet, or a guard dog?
If you want to have a pet, a small one is a good choice. A puppy might be okay too, but it’s better to wt until it is older.
Small dogs are good for a lot of reasons. They don’t require a lot of care and they don’t cost a lot of money to look after.
You also won’t have to feed them much food – they will eat scraps.
However, you will have to be careful about what you feed your dog.
You shouldn’t feed your dog human food – that’s what they were meant to eat.
You also shouldn’t feed your dog scraps from your dinner.
Are you planning on having more than one dog?
This is an important question, as you will need to make room in your garden for them.
If you do have more than one dog, you will also have to think about how to share the space in your garden.
Do you want to let them play together?
Or are you planning to have separate gardens?
Do you want a dog that is a one-man dog?
If you are married, you might not be able to have a dog that is a one-man dog.
You will need to make sure that your dog doesn’t bark too much.
You will also need to have more than one garden for your dog, which could mean investing in a separate garden or perhaps hiring a gardener.
Or maybe you don’t want a dog that you have to look after all the time.
