On a day to day basis, owning a dog isn’t exactly expensive, but there are some things that can increase the price of taking care of a dog, such as:
– Vet bills
If your dog gets sick, it can be expensive to get them treated by a vet. It’s possible to make this cheaper by getting your dog insured but, if you have a dog that has a long-term health condition, then it can still be expensive to keep up with the insurance and medication costs.
– Pet sitting
When you want to go on holiday, it can be expensive to pay someone to look after your dog. The most cost-effective option is usually to find a local pet sitter that offers dog boarding. I found a reasonably-priced company offering pet sitting in Broxbourne but I have seen a number of kennels and doggy hotels that were really expensive.
