TOP #84: Is Owning a Dog Right for You?

There is a lot more to owning a pet than most people realize. Your responsibilities as a pet owner will change throughout the course of the animal’s life, and you need to know what you’re getting into before you make the commitment. The average lifespan of a dog is 10-13 years, and the average lifespan of a cat is 16 years. When you adopt a pet, you’re making that long-term commitment, whether you realize it or not.

Today, Noora Keskievari of One Mind Dogs is here to discuss responsible pet ownership and all the things you should consider before adopting a pet. This topic is especially important for first-time pet owners, but it’s also beneficial information for anyone that may recommend pet ownership to friends or family.
