Adopting a New Puppy: Preparing for a Life-Long Commitment

The idea of pet ownership sounds very appealing to many. The idea of having a fluffy company at your side when you need comfort, or just having a snuggly fluff ball to cuddle with is an endearing and attractive picture, no doubt about it!  


Pets have been ingrained in human life for thousands of years, so it’s only natural to seek out and yearn for animal companionship. 


However, pet ownership isn’t to be lightly considered, you are purchasing or adopting a living being — a living animal who is entirely dependent on you for food, comfort, health, and emotional well-being.


Indeed, a pet will be a lifelong commitment that will enhance your life in ways you never thought possible. But a dog or a cat isn’t just there when you want them to be. A dog will require your attention even when inconvenient or frustrating.


Indeed, the first month of pet ownership for a new pet parent is usually the hardest, but stay true to your furry companion and with time, an unbreakable bond will form between you and your companion. You’ll probably be surprised there was ever a time you were without your companion’s fluffy and loving company!


The bottom line: pet’s are living breathing creatures with relevant wants and needs. Before you buy or adopt a new puppy and kitten be mindful of both the love and personal responsibility you are accepting into your life with your decision!
