Before you even consider getting a pet, I want you to really look at your schedule and justify for yourself whether you really have time to have a pet in the mix. Some people underestimate the amount of effort and time it takes to have a great pet. Pets need attention, and they need their owner to be there for them.
This is especially the case with dogs. Dogs, while the most affectionate animal you can have, are also the neediest. They need a master who will be there at all times to walk and feed them. Without time, I assure you, you will not be able to truly take care of your dog.
One thing I cannot stand is when a dog is left alone for over 8 hours every day and then just gets a short 10-minute walk at night. This is no life for a dog. A dog is meant to run around and socialize all the time with other dogs. If you can’t give them a happy life, allow someone else who has time to have that certain dog.
No matter what pet you get, you must take the time to train them. There is nothing worse than having a badly behaved pet, as they have the power to destroy your things and be awful around guests.
It is up to you in their young stages to enforce punishment if they do something wrong, and teach them the basic commands. It is harder to teach an old dog new tricks (but not impossible), and once they get into bad habits it can be hard to break them.
There are so many tools you can buy to start training your dog in the best way. But with so many options, it can be really hard to know which ones are the best bang for your buck. This is why I have decided to choose a specific one and let you know if it is worth the money or not.
One tool to help train your dog is the A&S Creavention PetClicker Big Button clicker. It has been made to help you in training and molding a perfectly behaved dog.

It is now that I must remind you that I am not a professional veterinarian or dog trainer! I am just the owner of a few animals and do take pride in the fact that they are very well trained. I recommend that you take some time and do as much research as possible before you purchase a pet, on the best way to properly train them. It is very important to take training a pet seriously as you hold their well-being in your hands. It is crucial that you take the time and buy products that will benefit them and help you in the long run.
All that being said, I recommend buying the A&S Creavention PetClicker Big Button clicker because I strongly believe in the “clicking” method of training. I have trained both my dog and my cat, to come to me when I click once. When I click twice, they politely sit. It is an amazing skill that they have and it has boosted their training. These hardly cost any money and will add to your experience as a dog owner/new trainer. It does not come with instructions so I urge you to read up more on using the clicker to get the best results for your animal!
