7) Not Researching the Breed
Movies and television are guilty of creating breed popularity. Many people fall for this trap and set out to get the dog they saw in the film or show. This can be a huge mistake. Dogs and cats in shows and movies are professionally trained actors. Those tricks and responses don’t come automatically built in. They were learned over a long and steady training process. Thinking you will have an instant trick dog or cat who does what you command is a mistake. There are some breeds which are harder to train than others. Many people do fall for this trap and end up either returning the pet or giving it away. This is not the pets fault. If you get a pet because you fell for the popularity trap, you need to be aware of what you are getting and how to handle proper training and care.
