17 Things To Think About BEFORE You Bring Home A Dog.

#6. You should definitely brush your dog's teeth, but make sure you're using doggy toothpaste. Don't worry, they'll love it: Doggy toothpaste tastes like chicken, beef, or pork.

#7. Avocado, grapes, chocolate, garlic, and onions are all on the list of foods that can make your dog very, very sick. Make sure you're familiar with the list of forbidden foods before you bring a dog home.

#8. Before you get a dog, ask yourself: Can I have this animal for life? Changes in ownership are traumatic for everyone involved, so it's best to avoid it.

#9. Before you get a dog, you should spend some time around them to make sure you're not allergic. If you are, consider a more hypo-allergenic pooch, such as a poodle, shih-tzu, or Portuguese Water Dog.

#10. You have to be tough: Dogs are strong, and you need to be strong to maintain and control them.
