No matter how bad your day has been, when you get home, somebody is always happy to see you. You’re never alone. You will never come home to an empty house again. Your dog wants your attention and will likely want to jump you as soon as you open the front door.
Having A Dog Helps You To Structure Your Life
Just as many other things; a dog is an investment. There is also a return on investment as soon as you bring the puppy home. Having a dog will help you manage your money more efficiently. You’re not the only one who gets hungry from time to time. You’ll learn to systematically buy things for your dog. Not only food but also toys, a bench, more food, go to a dog school and even more food and lots of other stuff you will find out by yourself. The hard way. Like… cleaning.
You will have to teach your dog good manners and tell it who to protect. A family dog knows the family members very well and will always try to protect them when it senses fear coming from its owners.
You Will Move More, A Lot More
Dogs like to run and play outside. Basic dog activity. It needs to move. That means you will have to move along. Dogs will make you more active and healthier, that’s just part of having a dog. You will likely have to walk your dog every day. Sometimes more than once per day.
When your dog’s still a puppy, walking it a few minutes a day will suffice. As it grows older, you will need to build up the walking time. Which is something you will also benefit from.
Increased Sense Of Responsibility
Your dog will make you proud when he or she does the tricks you’ve just taught it. This pet will make you laugh for dumb stuff, like running into a glass door. If you got her as a puppy she needs to learn a lot in a short amount of time. When it needs to pee or poo, it should be done outside. And you are responsible for teaching your dog how it’s done.
You will catch many people say that, in some way, having a dog is a big test that a couple could pass before they opt to have children together.
More Interaction With New People
When you’re walking your dog, it’s much easier to talk to strangers who also have a dog. You directly know that you have something in common and have immediately something to talk about. You will find yourself asking about the other person’s dog, the habits, the stupid stuff it does.
Or you could just brag about the tricks you taught yours.
And there’s even more many benefits of being a dog owner, trust me!
