How to Choose a Dog Breed

Vet care for dog breeds San Jose

When you’re ready to welcome a new puppy or dog into your home in San Jose, you should carefully consider the breed that would best fit into your lifestyle. Veterinarians recommend thinking about whether you have young children or plan to have a baby, and whether you own or rent your home. If you’re a renter, you’ll need to review your lease agreement to make sure that dogs are allowed. Some landlords only allow small breeds. If you’re growing your family, you’ll need a dog that is very gentle around children.

Watch this video or consult a veterinarian to hear about some more factors to consider before getting a new puppy. Large breeds need more time to exercise and they’ll eat more food. Certain breeds are predisposed to health problems and could require extensive vet care.
