3 Things To Consider When Looking for a Dog



Adopting a dog is a big responsibility. Because there are so many breeds to choose from, you may not be sure about which one is right for your family. Here are three things to consider to narrow down your choices and help you choose the right pet.

Lifestyle
Knowing why you want a dog can help you narrow down your options. If you’re looking for a guard dog, you may want to contact German shepherd breeders Florida to right the right companion. If you live alone and just want a small dog to serve as a companion, a dachshund or chihuahua may be a better option.


Energy 
You don’t want to adopt a dog with a lot of energy if you don’t have plenty of time to devote to him or her. A border collie may not be a good choice if you don’t have time to go on frequent walks or if you don’t have a fenced-in yard. Similarly, a laid-back breed such as a bulldog may not be a good choice for an avid hiker or runner. Choosing a breed that matches your energy levels is essential for finding the right dog.

Family Structure
You also need to carefully evaluate the structure of your family. If you have a baby, you may not want a young, energetic dog. If you have toddlers, a large dog may accidentally knock them over so you may opt instead to adopt a smaller breed. A large animal companion may be the best choice is you have teenagers.


It is vital to choose the right dog when you decide to adopt one. Whether you want to purchase or adopt your new pet, finding one that fits in well with your family and lifestyle is important. Consider these three things before choosing a pet so you can select the right one.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
