Many animal lovers will readily agree that dogs offer more than just companionship; having a dog enriches your life in so many ways. However, this enrichment does come with a cost. If you’re a long-time listener, you know that I have two golden retrievers, and in this episode, I thought I would break down the various costs that come with owning a pet so you can make your decision about adopting one based on financial facts versus the desire for a companion.

Listen in as I explain the vet bills I have had to pay over the last few years, as Rosie has faced numerous illnesses. You will learn the initial purchase cost of a dog, what the average monthly supplies might cost, and what you can expect in terms of at-home repairs when owning a puppy.

 “Our pets are family members.” - Tracey Bissett
