What to Consider
Whether you're thinking about adopting a puppy or an adult dog, it's important to think about a few things to help ensure a smooth transition:
• Match the dog to your lifestyle. If you're mellow, adopt a dog that shares your energy level.
• Love is awesome! But it's not enough to keep a dog happy and healthy. Dogs have their own needs, which often have to do with exploring the world around them and exercising. Showering them with love is really satisfying to us, but does not meet their needs for physical and mental stimulation.
• Training and management are a lifetime commitment. Dogs are like eternal kids who need to be supervised, managed, and given guidance for their entire lives. Even a well trained dog may surprise you with new behavior challenges from time to time that need addressing as they grow and go through different stages of life.
