How Much ?I've always been one to believe that having a dog is priceless. It is a huge responsibility though. As much as I'd wish we could just take a dog in and not worry about the costs, sometimes, it helps to have an idea of what goes into caring for a dog financially.
We're in the midst of a recession and many people are out of work. Some people have been forced to give up their dogs because they're barely making ends meet. Others are just abandoning them. I've always believe the best way to roll with the changes is to have the knowledge beforehand.
Preparation Goes A Long WaySometimes, seeing things in black and white helps give clarity to a situation.
Since preparation and knowledge will help with getting acclimated to having a dog, I've created a spreadsheet for people who may want to bring a dog into their household but are not sure about the costs.
It's a public Google document that you can edit by just typing in a number. It a simple spreadsheet that has been formatted and formulated so you can type in any amount and have it add automatically.
