Preparing to bring home a dog

Once you’ve decided that you’d like to adopt, there are a few first steps you’ll want to take.

Research: It’s very important to take the time to research what kind of pet is right for you, your home and your lifestyle – both now and in the future.

Get acquainted: Spend quality time interacting with the dog you’d like to adopt. Many times an animal’s behavior is different when away from other animals or in a kennel. The animal displaying bad manners or not paying attention may just be scared and lonely!

Know your responsibilities: Plan for and commit to being a responsible dog owner, including:

  • Dedicating the necessary time and effort to caring for and loving your dog.
  • Understanding the financial commitment involved.
  • Providing the necessary medical care and exercise for your dog.
  • Training to ensure good behavior and manners.
