Not much. I work long hours or travel often.

Can someone help care for your pet?
Great! Make sure you have a designated caretaker and a backup plan when you travel.
Can you board at a nearby kennel?
I can spend money on a new pet.
Great. Pets cost about $700 a year. (According to the ASPCA)
Annual costs for food, medical, toys and more cost around $700.
I have a house or large apartment.
My living space is a bit cramped.
Sounds good. Start picking out names!
Great! Your dog will need exercise.
I live with children younger than 7.
No young kids or elderly family.

Good. Start to prep your home for a dog!
