They’re adorable little things, aren’t they? However, they come with a ton of responsibility. Depending on your situation, an older dog may actually be what’s best for your household. Adult dogs are often better behaved, and more trusting than puppies. And what’s more, they are often already potty trained, cutting out a great deal of work and frustration for you. NOTICING YOUR DOG’S AGE 2 You may not have much control of your dog’s health as they get older, but you are completely in charge of your own attitude about the passage of time.
