The first and a very important question is: Why should I take the dog? Why do i need it? The dog is always chosen for a specific function. The objective defines its function. In other words, what it would have to do and what role will play in your life. If you are an avid hunter, you will choose a dog for hunting species. If you have a large country house, you will choose a loyal and reliable guard. If you serve in the police or as an employee of the special services, you just need to select a service dog breed. If you are a resident of a huge, multi-million metropolis, you will choose a dog from small lap dog breeds. Among the inhabitants of the city, many single people are looking for simple warmth. Lap dogs like no other, suit to this role. Believe me, they do an excellent job with this role. For this role, it is safely possible to give an Oscar. A dog is a living creature. It loves good and tasty meal, walk for a long time and even sometimes strongly and seriously be ill. In addition to this, it is necessary to educate it. There is a simple rule, if you do not educate your dog, then, over time, the dog will command you. Initially, decide first for yourself. Are you willing to spend on a dog your own life, leisure time and material resources. As we know, time is the most important resource that is irreparable. Time does not like to be killed or wasted. You have to have the agreement of all your family members to get a new four-legged friend. If you are willing to take a dog, and your beloved spouse will be strongly opposed, or even strictly contrary. Then, it is unlikely to get a dog. If you already have children. Lack of allergy to wool is also important factor that significantly affects the appearance of the dog in your house. As you know, dogs resemble their owners. Therefore, the next step in choosing a dog is compatibility of characters and tempers of the owner and his pet. If you are an active person with an active lifestyle, which has a cheerful and mischievous character, at the same time actively engaged in sports, running in the morning somewhere in the city park, you just need a dog with the same character and mentality, as well as you. Melancholic dogs and intellectuals will hardly suit you. Size always matters, and the size of the dog is of utmost importance. If you live in an apartment with total area of ​​30 square meters, you will hardly get a huge dog, for example, such as the Tibetan Mastiff. A dog as a man, just need living space. In which your pet, on a level with other family members, will move freely. Where it will eat, where and how it will sleep, and even more defecate, manage its natural needs, if the daily walk in any way is not provided. The lack of living space will cause in your pet apathy, depression, depressed emotional state, which ultimately has a negative impact on its health and its overall health. Of great importance is the length of your pet's coat. Its hair is short or long. This will affect how often you will groom, wash and comb it. The content of the longhaired dogs in urban housing conditions is extremely undesirable. When selecting a future family pet, an important role plays its sex. Boys tend to be more dominant and show aggression, as well as close to other people. Girls are more affectionate and friendly to the people around them. It is also important to consider that many species have congenital disorders, which may lead them to rabies, madness and various mental pathologies, leading to tragic consequences, sometimes even fatal. Decide another very important moral and ethical question. The question of a possible sterilization of the animal. The answer to this question is to find for himself.
