Choosing a pet

  1. 1. Choosing a Pet By Todd Goates - Utah Pet Care
  2. 2. Things to consider first • Is my home the right size to add an animal? • Will everyone in the household be able to live with the hair? • Will this pet pose a risk to my family/children? • How often will my pet be inside/outside of the house? • How physically active am I? • How much time can I devote to the pet? • Do I have the financial resources for possible veterinary bills? • Can someone care for my pet if I decide to travel without them?Can I withstand the noise level that the pet will introduce to my home?
  3. 3. Dogs • Dogs are very social creatures and will require that you spend a significant amount of time with them each day. Leaving them alone with no form of entertainment or exercise can lead to bad behaviors. • Each dog breed has different behaviors and needs. If you are set on getting a specific breed, make sure that you have researched it thoroughly before you commit to owning it. For more information dog breeds, please visit the American Kennel Club website.
  4. 4. Cats • Cats are less social than dogs, but they still require significant attention. • Cats can have differing personalities. Some will want to be held, others will try to scratch you to death if you touch them. • Make sure you are familiar with the cat’s personality before you bring it to your home, especially if you have young children. • Consider buying a scratching post, otherwise your furniture will become one.
  5. 5. Conclusion The more you know about your pet before they are in your home, the better prepared you will be. Make sure you do some research before you commit to anything. Remember, most dogs and cats can live 10 or more years. Make sure that you can commit to this many years and give them the care they need.
