Oh, for the Love! The Benefits of Responsible Pet Ownership

Happy Couple at Home with DogOwnership is a noun with a rather serious tone; essentially, it’s the act, state, or right of possessing something. We can “own” various assets, such as a home, car, or boat, but the term “pet ownership” seems inaccurate. Of course, responsible pet owners care for their pets’ needs, but it seems more precise to say that our pets own us.

While a sweet, devoted pet certainly inspires love and affection, there’s more to pet ownership than cuddles and treats. Before you dive in, it’s best to be as prepared as possible. You’ll be a much happier owner – and your pet will definitely thank you.
