Before bringing home your fur baby, you’ve probably decked out your house with all the things little Fifi or Fido will need, like toys, bowls, leashes, and a bed. But have you considered how much owning a dog will cost you for the years to come? According to one study, the annual cost of owning a dog can rack up to between $1400 and $4300, not including many of the initial costs. This of course is all relative to your lifestyle, and your doggo’s breed and health. Your pupper is sure to pay you back in full with love and joy, but it’s important to consider some of the biggest annual expenses so you can be the best pet-parent you can be.
