The short answer is absolute! Dogs need regular teeth brushing just like their human companions. 

What if you never bathed or brushed your teeth….Would you be healthy? How would you feel? What shape are your teeth and gums in? Those are some of the issues your dog will face if they do not receive regular grooming and teeth brushing. Although regular tooth brushing will help with your dogs breath and light tooth build-up.

Be Prepared for a Lifelong Commitment

Bringing a new pet into your home is a big choice.  Be sure to recognize the commitment before deciding that a new animal companion is right for you. To do this make an honest assessment of items such as are you ready for the financial, emotional, and time commitment owning a pet requires?

Consider a Senior or Special Needs Pet

Puppies and kittens aren’t for everyone. If an older pet better fits your lifestyle, check rescues in our local area such as Speak for the Unspoken who specialize in placing special needs dogs in loving homes. There are many loving animals that are often overlooked because of age or special needs. An additional benefit of rescue pets is they are usually spayed or neutered as well as screened for health and temperament issues.

Research, Research, Research

Whether you choose to adopt or go with a breeder for your new pet you will have tons of research to become a good responsible pet owner. A few additional items we highly recommend researching and having a plan for are listed below.

  • Space and environment required for your pet of choice
  • Training options for your new companion
  • Healthy Diet Choices
  • Professionals to care for your pet such as Veterinarian, Dog Walker, Pet Sitters and Groomers
