Dogs can be troublesome. They can bark, dig, and shed hair all over your furniture. They need to be exercised, and they cost money to feed. Fortunately there are things you can do to make sure your dog causes as few troubles as possible.
The first part of owning a problem free dog is to do your homework before you choose your canine companion. A dog should never be an impulse buy – this can be a recipe for disaster. Be realistic about how much time you have to exercise your dog, and how much time you want to spend on bathing and grooming them.
