Getting another pet in the home can be a stressful yet exciting experience. Before you make this decision, give it ALOT of thought! Is this for you or the pet? Do you feel like your dog is lonely? Some breeds are naturally docile, so maybe you are over thinking it. Most dogs sleep while you are at work even though they rush to the door when you arrive home. If you are wanting another addition to the family to train your current pet on social skills then try visiting the dog park or dog friendly areas near your home beforehand. Trial and error can never hurt. This is not only FREE, but you can take your dog away if there are any issues. It is very important to know what may trigger difficult behavior. Dont forget, doing research on different breeds can also be very key!
