5 Disadvantages of Owning a Dog

Since you guys enjoyed my post about 5 Advantages of Owning a Dog I thought I would do the opposite. This is my personal experience. I love my little furry ball and I am not trying to discourage people from getting a doggie. But, since not everything is perfect I thought I would share in a fun way 5 disadvantages of having a dog.


I’ve heard a lot of people saying that having a dog can be pretty cheap. ” They just need a corner to sleep and some food”. While this is partially true and having a pet doesn’t have to be overly expensive dogs are living organisms. They need drugs, doctors and checkups. Anything else your dog needs you can find cheap alternatives but when it comes to health things are tricky. You might never need a vet but you also might have to spend a lot more than you anticipated. My advice is to put some money aside each month for your dog’s medical expenses if they need them in the future.


As we all know dogs need company, walks and generally time. A busy lifestyle in addition to caring for a dog can be pretty tiring.


Dogs generally are pretty attached to their owners. Although, each dog is different usually your dog will get pretty attached to you. This means that your alone time will be a lot less from now on.


Have you ever thought what it would be like if you were drowning in hair? Get ready to find out! Dogs shed. A lot. Chances are you will be buying a new vacuum soon enough.


From the moment I got my baby my worst fear is the day I’ll lose her. If nothing happens to me I know that I will probably be okay to see my dog go. When you spend so much time with a being you are going to be deeply hurt when they’re gone.

All in all, dogs are great but getting one is not an easy decision and there are no take backs. So if you decide to get a dog it will be for life.
