COST OF OWNERSHIP

COST OF OWNERSHIP

The expense of dog ownership entails much more than the initial purchase price of your puppy.  Basic health care and food must be taken into account.  If you travel and cannot take your dog along, you will need to find a good boarding facility.  Professional grooming services may be necessary if you cannot perform the grooming chores yourself.  Providing a safe environment includes a fenced yard, area or kennel run.  The use of a stake and chain or tie out is suitable only for short periods and under supervision for the safety and well being of your dog.

If your family budget will allow this expenditure you will be rewarded with unconditional love, loyal companionship and many recreational opportunities.
