Think About Dog Adoption
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Dogs make wonderful companions. They are loyal, kind, and full of fun. George Elliot said about animals- dogs included, "Animals are such agreeable friends-they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms."

A positive experience with dog adoption takes planning. What amount of energy can you give to the dog's daily needs? Can you afford the Veterinary costs? What kind of dog temperament are you comfortable with? These questions are important to ask yourself because; a committment to the dog's needs, has to be made by the owner.

Puppies are cute. They have a lot of energy. They are curious about everything. Young dogs need more exercise. A little pup, needs housebreaking. Socialization classes are very important for them. A dog of a few weeks or months old, needs to learn to feel secure.. It does not come naturally to them. A socialization class with other dogs will help. Companies like Petco, offer socialization classes for dogs and their owners. The cost is not expensive. The dog will benefit immensely from socialization. It will help them feel comfortable with other dogs. This is especially important if you plan to put the dog into doggie day care. You don't want your dog being aggressive, to other dogs, or people, because they're frightened.

Dog temperaments comes in many forms, just like people. Research different breeds of dogs on Google, before you bring the dog home. An example is a Cocker Spaniel. Spaniels are loyal and devoted to their owners. However, they are on the nervous side. This type of dog needs a lot of patience and reassurance. Grooming needs are frequent. The dog's long ears can often become infected if hair grows around the ears.

A good case can be made for adopting an older dog. The exercise requirements are less. The personality is formed.. They are housebroken. Although the older dog is aware, they don't have the same level of curiousity, as a pup. Older dogs will usually not rummage through a cabinet to find out what's in there.

A dog shelter is a good place to adopt a dog. They have both pure breeds and mixed breeds. Consider a mixed breed. The mixed breeds have a combination of traits. They are often easier to deal with than a pure breed dog.

Dr Nicholas Dodman is a noted veterniary behavorist. He suggests the following dog shelters for people who live in New York City:

Brooklyn - Sean Casey Animal Rescue - The origanization hosts adoption events at Paek Slope's Animal Kind Veterinary Hospital. They have a shelter open every day from 11am to 7pm.

Queens - Bobbi and the Strays - This organization is part of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals. Manhattan -Animal Haven- It finds homes for abandoned dogs. They also have mobile adoption events.
