The day you bring home your new dog is a special one that both you and the puppy will remember forever. However, new puppy owners will need a lot of patience and energy because there are several things they must get used to when it comes to taking care of a dog. Puppies are just like babies, needing the same loving care and attention on your behalf and raising a puppy involves all your commitment especially because these little animals can be all over the place in the first months. Dog pictures can help you make the right decision when selecting your pet, but after that you have to learn how to take care of them.

Most dog breeders will allow their puppies to remain with their mothers for about 8 weeks but just in case you buy a dog that is smaller, make sure you bottle feed them with the proper milk mixture; cow's milk is not allowed in the first 12 weeks. Your puppy will also need all the attention he can get and the more time you spend with him, the more sociable it will become and the more it will respond to your voice and your commands. Furthermore, your dog must be clean all the time because its natural immunities are not fully developed.

Dog pictures are great, because if you are eager to buy a dog, seeing its picture will help you establish what sort of pet you are interested in from the very beginning. Still, you can see all the dog pictures you want, but your lifestyle should play a major role when choosing the dog you want to buy. It is known that all dogs require attention, but some of them need it more than others and if they are left alone they start to destroy the things you have in your home. Also, exercise is essential for every dog and while some dogs require much time to run around, others will be pleased with just a little physical activity.

Thus, if you travel a lot and you have no one to look for your dog while you are gone, you need to select a pet that will manage well in your absence, an independent breed such as Yorkshire Terrier. Puppies and dog pictures are adorable but those of you who don't have the time to keep a steady training schedule or to take care of their pet properly, should probably consider choosing an adult dog. These dogs can be great friends and they require less attention than puppies.

Owning a dog will definitely bring many smiles on your face, but it is important to keep in mind that having a pet is not only about fun, but also about responsibility and long-term commitment. Furthermore, owning a dog can be a little expensive and the costs you should not neglect are weekly food bills, bedding, toys, veterinary care, training classes and grooming. Next, a dog requires time, love and attention and as long as you are willing to offer him all these, you shouldn't have any problems in raising it. You can let dog pictures guide you in the process of selecting a puppy, but your final decision should be taken only after having analyzed these aspects: time, budget and lifestyle.

Your lifestyle can affect your dog: in a positive or in a negative manner and you should be very responsible when making the commitment of purchasing a puppy. Once you are positive you gave the time, money, energy and love which are necessary in order to take proper care of a puppy, you can go ahead and start browsing through our beautiful dog pictures: .
