Important Things New Dog Owners, & All Dog Owners Should Know About Pet Ownership

These two guide provide good starter information to consider when it comes to dog ownership:


What we see is that there are considerations, planning, commitment and investment (time and money) that goes into owning a dog across:

  • The pre-buying and research stage
  • The buying from a breeder stage
  • The puppy stage
  • The adolescent stage
  • The adult stage
  • The senior stage
  • And, if the pet has to be re-homed for a genuine and unavoidable reason – this stage too


Owning a dog should be a lifelong commitment (for the length of the dog’s life), and should not under any circumstances be an impulse purchase, or a purchase made without serious consideration that it will benefit and be desirable both the owner and the dog.
