How To Surprise Your Wife With A Puppy

Next, we will cover the ways to surprise your wife. Then finally, we will share with you some really cool videos of husbands surprising their wive’s with a cute doggy.
Deciding To Get A Puppy For Your Wife Step by Step
Step 1: Does she want one?
A puppy is a big commitment, and not something that should be given as a surprise. Not only do puppies require a lot of time and attention, but they also need to be trained and socialized.
If your wife is not prepared to handle a puppy, it can quickly become overwhelming. Furthermore, if your wife is not particularly fond of dogs, she may not appreciate the surprise.
It is important to make sure that both you and your wife are on the same page when it comes to getting a pooch. Otherwise, you may end up with an unhappy wife and an unhappy puppy.
So make sure you have talked extensively about a desire to get a dog before you surprise her with one.
Step 2: What type of dog will she like?
There are many different breeds of puppies, and it’s important to choose one that will fit well into your lifestyle. Do you want a small breed or a large breed? A hypoallergenic breed or a non-shedding breed? A high-energy breed or a low-energy breed? Answering these questions will help you narrow down your choices and find the perfect puppy for you.
Be sure to use this dog breed selector by the American Kennel Club to decide on which type of dog breed you should adopt: Dog Breed Selector.
Step 3: Are you ready?
Trust me, from one guy to another, you will be the one taking care of this dog for the rest of its life! From feeding to taking it on walks, my guess is you will do the majority of the work. Here are seven things to consider.
1. Where will the puppy live?
Puppies need a safe, comfortable place to call home. Do you have a backyard for the puppy to play in? If not, are you willing to take the puppy on regular walks? How much space do you have in your home for a crate or dog bed? Taking these factors into consideration will help you decide if you’re ready for a puppy.
2. Who will take care of the puppy?
Puppies require a lot of time and attention, so it’s important to make sure that someone in your household is willing to take on this responsibility.
Who will feed the puppy and walk the puppy? Who will take the puppy to the vet for check-ups and vaccinations? Make sure that everyone in your household is on board with taking care of a puppy before bringing one home.
3. What can you afford?
Puppies need food, toys, crates, beds, leashes, collars, and more. They also need regular vet check-ups and vaccinations. All of these things cost money, so it’s important to make sure that you can afford a puppy before getting one. Puppy-proofing your home and yard can also be expensive, so be sure to factor that into your budget as well.
If you need help getting an idea of what a puppy will cost annually as it grows up, check out this post we created here about the annual cost of Boston Terriers for a good idea. We surveyed 50 dog owners to give you a pretty good idea of what to expect: Annual Cost Of Owning A Boston Terrier.
4. Are you prepared for accidents?
Puppies have accidents—it’s just part of life. Be prepared for this by keeping things like paper towels and pet Stain & Odor Remover on hand. You’ll also want to make sure that any areas where the puppy will be spending time (crate, dog bed, etc.) are easy to clean and keep sanitary.
5. Are you prepared for chewing?
Puppies love to chew on things, so it’s important to have plenty of chew toys on hand. You’ll also want to make sure that any items that could be harmful if chewed on (e.g., electrical cords) are out of reach of the pup. And be prepared for some damage to your belongings—chewing is part of being a puppy!
6. Are you prepared for barking?
Puppies bark—it’s another part of life. Be prepared for this by having patience and teaching your pup when it is appropriate to bark (e.g., when someone is at the door) and when it is not (e..g,, in the middle of the night). If barking becomes excessive, there are products available (e..g., ultrasonic bark control devices) that can help train your pup not to bark excessively.
7. What is your lifestyle?
Do you live in a house or an apartment? Do you have a backyard? How much time are you home during the day? Do you travel often? These are all important factors to consider when deciding if a puppy is right for you.
