We reckoned Trouble's first year cost about 1000 not including the cost of her, hate to think what she has cost this last year and as I head towards her second birthday next week and spent another 30 on her presents, every penny worth it though!

If only people would read this and actually understand the numbers...
While i think every home isn't complete without a pet, said home should have the ability to care properly for their pet.

i love my in-laws new pup but how i tried to talk them out of it. they have two kids already, pregnant with their third and only one of them works and not to talk bad on anyone but also use food stamps to cover their own food costs.
I actually pulled out my costs for my two dogs for just two months, only included food (not wal mart special but not $20 a LB food, just plain old decent quality large dog kibble) flea and tick tx as well as heartworm tx...Thought it would at least make a second thought. it didn't.
vet visits don't exist, they, or I, have given his puppy vaccines, i am working to get them in contact with a local spay/neuter group to get him neutered and i have offered to cover his rabies vaccine and county license cost for his first year(i work for county animal control, sad when i pay for my own job), got them a crate because i am tired of hearing how much the little guy is destroying but am still pretty sure they wont use it, as it just "takes up too much space".
There are days I love the dogs of this world more than the people who own them.

Wow! This is really a great post. Thanks for the info. Well, sometimes, when you get a brand new pet, it is unpredicted because somebody was giving them away in front of Walmart.The expenses of getting a brand new pet are more than you may think, and also you need a ton of things right away.

The cost of having a dog is overwhelming especially in the city. When we lived out of town it just didn’t seem to cost as much to have a dog. But it's still up to you if you want to pursue having one,

It's so frustrating to me to see people post in a forum looking for ways to cheap out on medical care for their pet. "Well, I know she's sick, but I don't want to have to spend a couple hundred bucks on tests at the vet's office."

If you don't want to pay what it costs, you shouldn't have a pet. I take my dogs to the vet, I take my rabbits to the vet, I took my rat to the vet for surgery when he had a small growth.

You are GOD to your pets - you control everything in their life. That's a heavy responsibility, and if you can't live up to it, don't take it on.

Heck, i spent nearly $200 today on food, treats, air tight containers to keep food and treats in, a long training leash, and a "travel" water bowl for car rides and dog parks (my wiener/shep mix goes to dog parks from time to time, not my pit mix).

So far this month, including today, i am up to at least $800. Then again thats 2 vet trips, Puppy Obedience and beginner obedience class, and the treats and what not to go with that. I also drive 30-40 min to the classes, so that adds up. Still gotta go to the vet next week for 3rd set of shots and rabies shot, as well as chipping both my dogs....

Cost of owning a dog.

Good post! A lot of people get dogs and think how expensive could it be. Throw some cheap food to them and their good right? Wrong! Healthy happy dogs that live long lives require maintenence. On heartworm, flea, tick meds alone I spend at least $1000 every six months. I go through 2 $55 bags of dog food every week. My dogs ALL go to the vet at least once a year for shots and physicals. When I first adopted Budhha he got sick and it took us like $600 to get him over it. Spay and Neuter costs for some of my dogs. Toys and things to enrich their minds NOT to mention the cost on your daily life. I absolutely can't go on vacation. There is nobody that can be trusted to take care of all of my dogs. Every day it's a couple hours spent JUST on food and water and then everybody has to have one on one play time and walks. Having just one dog is a definite responsibility let alone multiple. Purchasing a dog should be well thought out. Especially in this economy. And as with horses a free puppy is often an expensive puppy

Well, it just depends if you're serious about taking a dog your companion. Might suck a little in the short run but you'll really benefit from your dog in the long run. The advantages of having a dog outnumber the disadvantages.
