Deciding to bring a new dog home is a momentous decision. Just like every addition to your family, this too will bring with it a ton of excitement, happiness, contentment, challenges, and changes.
Once you’ve decided that you’d like to expand your life by bringing in a dog, the next most important question you will want to answer is, “How to choose a new dog.”
Should you pick one similar to your friend’s because they are oh so sweet!? Or, should you pick one that you’ve been dreaming of since you were a child? Should you pick a big dog you can cuddle or a smaller dog you can carry in a bag? Will a high-energy breed be better suited for your family, or does your lifestyle demand you pick a more mellow dog?
How to choose a new dog isn’t a question with a straightforward answer. However, at Haven Dog Training, we can help you navigate your way to the right answer.
