Dogs are people too, except not really, they’re more like high maintenance people who need to be cared for constantly. Do you have a fenced in backyard that your dog can use as a playground/ bathroom? What about the time? Can you commit to walking your dog every day, keeping it cooped up is a great way to cause your dog to go stir crazy? Will you be able to keep up with the costs? Having a dog comes with a lot of maintenance costs, if you’re struggling to keep your lifestyle and budget on the same page, you may want to hold off on getting a dog.
