Compromising on Dog Breed – Getting a New Puppy [Part 3 of 4]

In the last post, I covered choosing the best dog for you, but that’s only good for those bachelors and bachelorettes out there. When you have a significant other, or a family to appease, you have to consider what you’re willing to compromise on.

So the kids want a big dog, but maybe you had your heart on a small breed- what can you do?

Try showing them some pictures like this….

If that doesn’t work, you’re going to have to do some research.

It’s actually pretty easy, all you have to do is ask yourself WHY you want said dog. Head back to part two, and remember the questions you asked yourself. Maybe you want a small dog for close companionship, or maybe your goal is to have a dog that lives as long as possible.

Everyone should write a list on the most important qualities in a dog, and what features they can give up. Although dogs are adorable, simply picking the cutest might not be the best.

Go back to pedigree.com and fill out the form, with everyone involved. If you can’t get everyone to agree, mention that now might not be the best time to get a dog, and I promise… attitudes will change. It’s a completely new perspective when you realize that you’re considering what’s best for your pets and your family.
