Having a dog in one’s life is a great responsibility. This should not be taken lightly. When you own a dog, you are responsible for the welfare of a living being. If you don’t have the understanding, time, patience, caring and knowledge you should educate yourself. You should carefully consider if you have the qualifications for such a great responsibility. You should also love dogs. If you don’t qualify, then don’t get one. Do you find yourself on this list? If you answered yes, you are one of the 11 types of people who should never own a dog.

If you don’t have adequate time to spend at home or plan to leave your dog in a kennel frequently, you should not own a dog. Dog’s need structure and routine in their lives, just like a child. If you are making the dog stay elsewhere to suit your schedule, don’t get a dog. Dogs are sentient beings and know when they are wanted and cared for, or not.

If you are always changing their environment, you will create a very anxious and unhappy pooch.
