A: Adult dogs are often a good choice because they don’t need as much of your time as a puppy would. It is also easier to tell what the dog will be like if it is already an adult. There are fewer surprises with an adult dog. However, you need to consider which fits best with your family, your other pets, and your lifestyle.

Q: Is a female dog a better companion than a male dog?

A: Both will make great pets. Regardless of sex, it is important to have your dog spayed or neutered.

Q: How big will he/she get?

A: The size will depend on the breed of the dog. Puppies of different breeds grow at different rates. The guide often given is to look at the puppy’s feet. Big feet denote that it is going to grow into a big dog. By the time the dog is ten months old, he or she has done 80% of its growing.

Q: What are the most common parasites that pets get?

A: Fleas, ticks, ear mites, roundworms, and tapeworms.

Q: How do I housebreak him/her?

A: Crate training is recommended. Make sure you buy the right size crate. The dog is placed in a cage just large enough to be a bed (dogs don’t like to soil their beds.) Too large a crate can often cause long-term problems, as the dog/puppy will go to one corner of the cage to urinate or defecate. One suggestion is to purchase a crate that comes with a divider panel as an accessory. This allows you to adjust the position of the space available. The last thing you do before you put the dog in the crate is to take him outside to his favorite spot. When you take him out of the crate, the first thing should be another trip outside. No food or water should be placed in the crate, just a blanket and a chew toy. However, if the dog is in the crate all day, water must be provided.

Q: Is it okay to keep my dog outside all day?

A:  No. Dogs by nature are social animals and are fond of company. Young dogs in particular become extremely lonely and bored when left alone for long periods of time. A dog may resort to destructive behavior when not given enough attention.
