For many new home builders, moving into a new property is the perfect time to introduce a new pet to the family.
Having a pet can be highly rewarding, but it’s a choice you have to commit to for years. So which is the best pet for you? A bird? A cat? A snake? To help choose the ideal pet for your new home, read on!
Don’t Impulse Buy
Sure, puppies and kittens can make even the coldest of hearts melt, but adopting a pet is a decision to be made with your head. Be sure to make a deliberate, thought-out decision rather than an impulse one. This pet will impact your daily life for many years to come.
Talk About Why You Want A Pet
Are you wanting a pet for company? If so, you’ll work best with an animal who can interact with you, such as a dog or a cat. If you want a pet to cuddle, or teach tricks, a goldfish or budgie might leave you bored.
Love Your Lifestyle?
Your choice of new pet can change the structure of a family, while impacting daily life at home. Your new friend needs to be acceptable to all family members. For example, if you’d love a dog, be sure to research the different traits of each breed. If you have a young family, for example, you’ll need a breed who’s good with children. But if kids are keeping your hands full, will you have time to walk a dog once or twice a day? Research what the dog requires to be content, and be realistic with whether you can make it happen. If you work long hours or travel a lot, remember some pets can easily get lonely. Others aren’t bothered by solitude, but if you’re away often, you’ll need to make sure you have someone you can trust to feed and look after your pet while you’re gone.
New Home Builders – Plan Ahead
The size and layout of your home’s interior and outdoor space is especially important when choosing a pet. Generally speaking, smaller pets do better in smaller areas, but size doesn’t matter as much if you’re able to dedicate a generous amount of time to exercise and interaction. How much free space is there? Is there a back yard? Is it fenced? New home builders have the advantage of being able to consider these factors when looking at house and land packages (Perth).
