This is really a useful thread. Many of them don't know how to treat dogs with care. They are really man's best friend! They should also get the freedom and care. Buying a dog and keeping it in a kennel doesn't really make a sense.
If you really love dogs, give them the opportunity to socialize with other pets. Get them relaxed and exercised. Neither you get tired nor does he!
I use to treat my 'Rambo' in a best way I can. If ever I don't get a time, I will not be planning to keep him in the kennel instead I will look for some dog walking services.

Hope you all will do the same.. Love your pets.. Let them live!!
I have heard about " love your pet" services @ Airdrie. They have a professional team to take care for your pets.

This link is awesome. I've been wanting a puppy since our German Shepard passed away about 2 years ago but my boyfriend does not want the responsibility again. This makes be rethink about getting a puppy because I question myself if I could provide the necessary attention they need? Then I think well when faced with change don't you adjust accordingly (this might not be the best way to think about being a puppy mommy).

I give my pooch as much fuss as possible and he has turned into a very soppy and affectionate dog. Keeping a dog is hard work depending on the breed I guess, but they become part of your family full stop.

Thank you for sharing us this awesome link.
I visited the link and there's a lot of helpful information that are very important especially to someone who is planning on getting a new dog. Having a dog means a lifetime commitment. You cannot return the dog if you don't like it anymore. You should be ready once you have a dog.

I’m the lead content curator for Coops And Cages and a couple of other pet blogs. My love for animals is matched by my love for 'attempting' to play the guitar.

Choices

Right now I know someone who is trying to choose between his girlfriend and his dog just because the girlfriend doesnt want dogs around the house. Having pets in general can make things hard sometimes.

Yeah you really have to ask yourself if you have not only the TIME but the MONEY to properly take care of a dog! Just because they're cute doesn't mean they're not hard work to take care of!

Would love to read the article, but the page is not available anymore. Many people doesn't understand the value of getting a dog. It is very important to enlighten them.
