Did you know, on average, a dog owner could spend upwards of $5,000 each year just to have their dog walked?! Yup, it’s true. It might seem a little crazy to most of us 🙂 but, I know people that pay for this service. Also, many dog owners now pay for Doggy Day Care.
I have owned dogs all my all my life, and although on an ongoing basis, if you buy good quality food, and exercise your dog (just like with people), your Vet bills should be manageable.
Good food should not be the cheapest, it doesn’t do your dog, or your pocket book any good. As I mentioned above, a good, affordable natural dog food works best, check out this “Life’s Abundance” dog food.

We all know, nothing in life is always easy. Be prepared for unexpected expenses. If you are not able to invest in a couple thousand dollars for emergencies, then it is best to start putting some money away just for these unexpected occasions.
Believe me, when something happens, you will feel terrible if you have to put an otherwise healthy dog down because of lack of funds.
