Dogs provide immeasurable benefits to their owners’ lives, including companionship, stress reduction, unconditional love, and more. It’s impossible to put a price on all your dog does for you.

Before you bring a dog into your life, know what you’re in for. Recent data from the American Pet Products Association (APPA) and LendEDU, a financial education website, will help you prepare a realistic budget for your pet.
