- Knowing the dog’s energy level is very important. This will determine the amount of exercise you need to give the dog and in turn the amount of time you need to invest in him.

2. The need of attention of every dog differs. A dog who stays around you and keeps nudging you will need you to engage with them often. A more independent dog who is content and sits peacefully will not need constant attention from you.
3. The age of the dog is also very important. Raising a puppy is a lot of fun, but will need a lot of patience, training, toys and many more. While a mature dog will need alesser amount of training and time.
4. And if Veterinary bills are a consideration, then mixed breed dogs fit the bill better as they have lesser health issues. A pure pedigree dog can require more maintenance.
And in case you do have some money to spare then we suggest you adopt a Special needs dog which we assure you will be far more rewarding and fulfilling. They can have issues such as limited mobility or some allergy but still have a good quality of life and be very loving.
