Why Buying a Puppy As a Gift May Not Be Such a Great Idea

If you are trying to find the ideal gift for that relative or friend that has everything is sometimes a hard thing to do. A lot of people sometimes think that buying them a puppy might be just the ticket. But in reality, it may not be the best gift to give someone, unless it's a person that may have lost their dog recently. Here are some reasons why giving a puppy as a gift might not be a good idea.

First things first, you need to figure out if the person really wants a puppy. If a friend or relative has been talking a lot about wanting a puppy doesn't necessarily mean that they really want one. After all if he really wanted one, isn't it possible they would have gone out and got one on their own? It's possible that they are just wishing they had one but they really aren't ready for the responsibility it takes to raise a puppy.

Never buy a puppy as a gift for your child. If you want your child to have a puppy it's better if the whole family goes out together and picks out the puppy that best suits the entire family and not to pick one out for the child without them seeing it first.

Even if you do decide to get a puppy for someone as a gift, you should never give them the puppy as a birthday or Christmas gift. With everything that's going on during those celebrations the chances are that the poor little thing is going to simply get lost in all of the things going on for the day and he won't get the proper welcome that he needs and deserves.

You need to understand that even though a puppy is loveable and cute, they are a big responsibility, no different than children and they need proper food, lots of attention, daily exercise, regular visits to the vet for shots and checkups and much more. So, it's a big responsibility for anyone.

You need to take into consideration if the person you are considering buying the puppy for likes to travel a lot. You need to consider whether or not they work a lot, if they gone a lot in the evenings, etc. If they are, they really are not a very good fit for being a puppy owner. They simply won't have time to take care of a puppy properly.

If you seriously still want to give this kind of gift then why not consider just getting them a gift certificate they can use to buy their own puppy. This way they can pick out their own kind of puppy, one that might fit his lifestyle and personality better and he can wait until he feels that he has time for the puppy and will be able to take responsibility for the puppy.
