When you buy a pet for the whole family, all members should take part in the election when you vote for the kind of pet you want to have. Whether they want a cat, a dog or other animal, everyone has to voice their opinion. Remember that though the pet is an animal, it is usually considered to be a family member and loved by all.

Before buying a pet, there are certain things to consider. Do you have time to take care of your pet? This is an important issue that has to be thought about carefully. A lot of people do not think of this at the time of getting a pet and eventually the animal is the one to suffer the most. Think about the needs of each animal and choose one depending on the time available to you. For example, if you choose a puppy, remember that you have to take it out for a walk at least twice a day. Continuously remember that your pet is a family member and should have the attention and love as any other child.

If you have young children, make sure they are not aggressive with the animal. For example, your child should never pull the tail of the animal. You should also make sure that all family members are ready and they want a pet. You need to have in mind what kind of animal is appropriate. I mean, check if any of your family members have any allergies. Take time and carefully examines the details, to avoid complications. This has to be done before buying the pet. There is no point getting a pet and then trying to get rid of it.

A big dog or a small dog

Usually the first choice of parents is a puppy or small dog, that grow with their children or who will not represent a danger to the lives of children. Experts say, however, it is preferable to get an older dog, used to people and in particular to children. If you choose one from the animal shelters, people from there will know for sure what kind of animal will fit in your family.

Puppies are adorable, but choose one only if you have enough time to "train" and live with them. If you have a small child, you may have to spend a lot of time with your child and may not have time for the pet. Some species of dogs are nervous and unpredictable in the presence of smaller children.

Food and animal hair

When you are teaching a child how to approach the dog or cat, the parent must be extremely careful. Whenever the pet is around, the kid should be advised to have a casual attitude to animals. Trainers say that one of the strategies they adopt is that children should begin to comfort your dog or cat with two fingers. That reduces the risk of inhaling the animal hair. Also, they recommend that on every ‘meeting' both parents to be present. Pets that shed a lot of hair should be avoided, especially if you have a child in the house.
