Ten Steps for Successful Dog Ownership


Dogs have been bred by people for thousands of years to do work and be friends for humans. Because dogs are smart and friendly, they are called “man’s best friend.”

Owning a dog can be a positive, joyful experience for the entire family. The decision to own a dog is an important one that should not be taken lightly, because a dog is not a fun diversion, a small person with fur, or an entertaining gift. Owning a dog requires a commitment from you that will last the lifetime of the dog.

A dog is an important member of the family. The time and effort you spend caring for your dog will be returned to you in the form of the lifelong loyalty and friendship that you will receive from your dog. He will provide you with a friend to talk to, be an entertaining companion, provide a sense of security and protection for your family, and bring joy to your household.

Being a “parent” to a companion animal can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. There are many things to consider when choosing the right dog for you. Also, there is a lot of responsibility and caring to ensure a successful, loving, and productive relationship with your dog.

Owning a dog is similar to raising a child. You must be a responsible parent to your dog just as you would to a child. Being a responsible, loving dog owner will bring you many benefits, the most important of which is the trust and friendship of a pet who will love you unconditionally for its entire life. Owning a dog is a big responsibility and can even be costly when you factor in trips to the vet, having the dog groomed, and taking care of unexpected medical expenses. The hardships involved in dog ownership are well worth your time and money. You will never find a more loyal, devoted friend than a dog who loves you unconditionally. Owning a dog is one of life’s great joys.

Ten Commandments For Dog Owners – Responsible Dog Ownership

“Dogs are our link to paradise.

They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent.

To sit with a dog on a hillside

on a glorious afternoon

is to be back in Eden,

where doing nothing was not boring,

it was peace.”

– Milan Kundera
