Owning a pet is no small task. It’s a commitment of your time, energy, and patience, but the welcoming tail wags and happy licks are well worth it. Here’s what you need to do to make sure you’re ready for your new pet and that they are ready for you, too.
 
Time

The first step before deciding to purchase or adopt a new pet is to ask yourself if your current lifestyle allows you time to walk, exercise, and otherwise care for this new responsibility. Young animals, especially, require an extended amount of time for feeding and training.

Care

Window shop for a veterinarian near you and make sure that he or she is the right fit. Treat the search the same way you would for your own doctor to make sure that when the time comes they can deliver the level of care your new friend deserves.

Safety

A new pet is kind of like a new baby, you’ll need to make sure your home is free and clear of any objects that could hurt them or, more important, that they can accidentally consume. Take the necessary steps to pet-proof areas you don’t want them to explore.

Selection

If you have children or other pets, do some research on what the best family friendly breeds are. It’s also important to think of the size of your space in comparison to the size of your pet and the amount of room they need to feel comfortable.

Financials
It’s no secret that being a pet parent is a big financial commitment. You’ll need to make frequent purchases of food, toys, and other items, as well as on medicines, vaccinations, and healthcare needs. Set aside some savings before your pet arrives so you can be prepared.
