How to choose a dog it is a question to be given its importance, but secondary to that of "IF" take a dog. It is not my intention to discourage anyone nor to stifle the desire, human and animal in general, to share spaces and times with a furry 4-legged being who swears eternal love to you. And sometimes slobbering.
I say this for his sake, and ours too. How to choose a dog is important, but first make sure you really want to have it and can realistically welcome it. And keep. I emphasize to maintain, in an economic sense, and in a psychological sense. Because we talk about years and years of buying it food and accessories, wash it, take care of it and assist it. And to take it to do the needs season and in all weather conditions.
Now we can talk about how to choose a dog. The most important decision is that we are ready to have one - fantastic news. I have a Bernese Mountain Dog female for almost 10 years and I couldn't be happier. Of my choice, first of all to have her next to me. I like her breed, but when I had chosen her I have to tell the truth that I didn't have much idea of how to choose a dog.
How to choose a dog: criteria to consider
Among the various criteria to be considered in the how to choose a dog there are certainly dimensions in relation to space that we can make available to you. Of the amount of space, but also of the type. Sometimes having a very large house, but zero garden is unsuitable as much as a studio apartment, vice versa a large garden associated with a closet, as much as a super villa with a park, can be the paradise for a dog "From outside". Maybe to dedicate one to kennel all for him. Do-it-yourself? I'll also explain how, here.
After space, time is important to understand how to choose a dog: we mentioned the walk under the weather or in the cold for the needs: it was just an example. Even if we are ready to face the storm, for our 4-legged friend, we evaluate how many hours on the agenda we can then dedicate to him during the day or at least spend with him, in the same room.
Dogs left alone for whole days, who see their owner only in the evening on the fly, between a happy hour and pizza with friends, or in the "hit and run" between the gym, shopping and coffee with friends, they must be at least lonely dogs . Or wild. There are those who suffer more from loneliness than others, better understand it. Not to make them sad but also to avoid the spite of an abandoned dog.
Since man is also a social animal, even before all the others, the thought ofhow to choose a dog it must also take into account the people we hang out with and, even earlier, much earlier, those we eventually live with. Wife, husband, children, partner or partner, grandmother, roommates.
And then entourage of friends: when we think about how to choose a dog we ask ourselves and we ask them if they are allergic, terrified, disgusted. Or particularly enthusiastic about some particular dog. It is true that everyone has the right to choose how to choose a dog, but what if we then hear "either him or me"? I don't want to happen to me.
More pragmatically thinking, beyond friends and family, how to choose a dog it must also take into account the neighbors, any landlords but above all the condominium regulations. There are buildings that don't like them, let's look at the regulation.
Other paperwork to consult are those of insurance, for example, and as mentioned above, the Bank account, to understand if the dog with us will not go hungry. Let's remember, speaking of costs, that a large dog in general costs more, especially for the "food" variant which increases with size exponentially. It is also true that small dogs often have more medical expenses and an abundance of coats and accessories.
