Before you get a dog – 8 essential tips to get it right!

Many new dog owners often realise – once the initial excitement of bringing home the puppy has passed – that they weren’t prepared to be a pet parent. Avoid pet regret or worse… pet neglect by downloading reading this before you get a dog – 8 essential tips to get it right!

Owning a dog is a 10 – 15 year commitment to provide the appropriate environment, activities, exercise and training for the lifetime of your dog. This guide was created to help your family to make better choices and feel confident about taking on the responsibility of a dog.

Pets give us the greatest joy, not to mention many health benefits!
But sadly, thousands of dogs end up in over-burdened animal shelters every year.
Busy parents are often pressured into getting a puppy by their children.
The family takes on a pet without fully thinking through what’s involved in looking after a canine companion. The result can be pet neglect or surrender, which affects the whole family, including the dog.
Owning a dog is a 10–15 year commitment (thanks to advances in veterinary medicine our pets are living even longer now!) to provide the appropriate environment, activities, exercise and training for the lifetime of your dog. Unfortunately, many new dog owners often realise — once the initial excitement of bringing home the puppy has passed — that they weren’t prepared to be a pet parent.
I created this guide to help your family to make better choices and feel confident about taking on the responsibility of a dog.

In the guide, you’ll find:
• 8 essential tips — what families need to talk about: time and money, differences in dog breeds, risks of online pet shopping, keeping your dog happy and healthy, the basics of dog behaviour and more!
• Eye-opening stories from families who share their experience and tips.
• A checklist to keep you on track.

After reading this guide you may decide you are ready for a puppy or you many decide that dog parenting is not right for you at this time.
