Think of Three Things Before You Buy Puppies

Think of Three Things Before You Buy Puppies

September 28, 2018

Before you give in to the temptation to buy puppies, we want to shed light on the seriousness of such a decision.

Dogs bring so much joy and comfort to our lives. It is essential to know some responsibilities come along with dog ownership. We have put together our top three things you should consider. Take a look and then contact us if you have more questions!


  1. Can you afford to have a dog?

Purchasing a dog requires money. Okay, you know that already but sometimes we need to state the obvious. There are hidden costs like vet bills, food, hiring a professional trainer or dog walker are just a few to think about before you buy puppies. If you live in an apartment, you may be required to make a pet deposit on your lease or make monthly payments. What happens if your pup gets sick? Does your financial situation support pet medications or surgery? Will you purchase pet insurance to help with unforeseen circumstances?


  1. Do you have the time for a puppy?

Before you buy puppies analyze your free time versus available time. This is really important because if you’re a frequent traveler, it will seriously affect the care of your new pup. For instance, who will take care of your dog? Will you have the opportunity to hire someone to care for your puppy? What about the option to have family members, with puppy patience and experience, care for your pup? You must consider your work and leisure schedule and how a pet fits comfortably in it.


  1. Do you or any of your family members have allergies?

Although there is no such thing as a 100% hypoallergenic dog, you can buy puppies right here at PetCenter that produce small amounts of dander. These dogs don’t shed much. Poodles, Schnauzers, and Maltese dogs are favorites with people who have allergies.
