There is no greater joy than a dog being accepted into your home. I have wanted to become a dog mom for years, but it was practically difficult to commit to giving a fur baby the love and attention he or she deserved with college and a career that kept me away from the house for 12-14 hours at a time. I love all dogs, so it is really different for a family dog than having your “personal” dog. Here are a few sure signs that your time to be a dog mom has arrived:
Having a dog is not just something you should do. After seeing how adorable it is, so many people pick up a puppy, only to find themselves unable to handle it after a few weeks, a condition that is not good for you and it’s clearly not good for the dog.
Yeah, you may be able to take on the nursing, playing, and walking duties all by yourself, but the rest of the family will have to share space or time with the new addition to the family too. And there will certainly be moments when they have to take up the slack for a certain reason. And that is why you’d want to make sure that the whole family is good, and that means laying out exactly what it would be like for you all to live with a dog.
Dog mom life is wonderful, satisfying, and so much fun, but it also comes with a lot of hard work. To raise a dog to be a safe, happy, lifelong companion requires real passion and commitment, some patience, and a lot of love.
They need a lot of outdoor space to remain secure and healthy, which ensures you can have a good-sized yard where your dog will spend much of its time.
Dogs are creatures who are interactive. Being an active part of people’s lives is vital to them, so spending time with them is a must. If you can’t dedicate this time to your new family member, maybe now isn’t the best chance to welcome home a dog.
It will take you a considerable amount of time and money for a dog, but if your budget and set a schedule for your dog accordingly, then you should be just good. In your spare time, no one can grasp your financial condition or what you do, so don’t think about what they’re saying.
Yeah, prior to becoming a dog mom, there are a lot of things to remember, but it’s satisfying. You have a dog that is unconditionally happy to obey you and appreciate you. You’re going to fall in love with this pet, and she’s going to fall in love with you. Treat it as though it was your child. Adopting a dog is going to suddenly change your life, and you’re going to enjoy it.
