Choosing The Right Pet For You

Most individuals have an idea just what type of pet they want; however, the maintenance of a pet can cause some concern. Knowing how to choose the correct pet for you may be easy. You may have had several pets as a child and know you need a companion for your own home or you may have always wanted a pet but been told you could not have one. Whatever the case you may need to take into consideration some key points to pet care when deciding what pet is right for you.

First some pets take more care than others. Dogs are very needy animals. They are very sensitive towards their owners. I am sure most of you have heard of dogs tearing up a house when left alone all day. Dogs can get bored even when they have other dog companions and toys. They need the human interaction. Most dog owners take their dogs out for a walk before work and after work for the exercise and play time. Other owners who work outside will often let their dogs come to work with them to keep them out of trouble. Cats on the other hand can amuse themselves with their toys while you are away. Fish are another type of pet that is typically low maintenance except for cleaning the fish tank.

Pet care is very important when you own a pet. They need attention from their owners, positive reinforcement, training and love. Fish are usually excluded from this statement, as they just need food, proper tank maintenance and a few plants to sustain a good life. The decision will be yours to make in choosing what the right pet is for you.

While dogs are high maintenance and require the most training they are also one of the best pets to own. They can alert you to danger, alert you to someone at the door and the best gift of all is their unconditional love. A dog only asks in return for proper care and a great deal of attention. If your dog lives in doors with you and you cannot be home all the time make sure they are surrounded by the comforts those doggie deserve. If your dog lives in the yard while you are away you must make sure their dog house is in a shady part of the yard under a canapé or umbrella to keep them cool at all times in case of inclement weather conditions. Never, Never, Ever keep your dog in the car for any period of time! Keep two water bowls full at all time in the shade. Imagine getting up in the morning to your mate and never exchanging a glance, a touch or a hug. Well, that is how your dog will feel but can not tell you so be sure to always start and end your day together with a meaningful hug or touch…let them know you love them! A Happy Home is a Healthy Home.

Cats on the other hand can be high or low maintenance depending on breed as well as personality. Some cats require hours of people attention while others shirk attention. Some cats belong to a one pet household. Some cats do not like to share their owner's affections. Others need the playmate's attention to live happily. It will be hard to determine just which type of cat you own when you first adopt them as kittens as their personalities are just developing.

Pet care is the most important factor when you are deciding which pet is right for you and your home. You will want to consider all the pet care needs of the animals you are looking at. It is best to read and educate yourself on the breed you are considering to adopt to determine if they will have a happy place in your home.
