8 Good Reasons Why You Shouldn't Give a Dog as a Gift

8 Good Reasons Why You Shouldn't Give a Dog as a Gift

Dogs are adorable and fun to be with at home. They are friendly and nice to play with. They can even provide comfort and stress relief after a hard day at work. However, despite their best characteristics and features, they don't make a nice gift.

In case you're wondering why, here are 8 good reasons why you shouldn't give dogs as gifts.

1. It requires financial responsibility


Even though you give a fully vaccinated puppy to your friend, he still has to spend money for its food, grooming supplies and other needs. If he is not financially prepared, your friend, as well as the dog, might suffer the consequences.

2. It entails a lifestyle change


If your recipient prefers to live alone, giving him a dog as a gift might force him to completely change his lifestyle. Unfortunately, not all people are successful when it comes to such changes. As a result, the dog may not get the physical and psychological stimulation it needs to be healthy.

3. It needs home preparation


It's not enough that you consider how large a recipient's home is. For your friend and the dog's safety, you should also consider its environment. A busy street, for example, can make a dog feel agitated, especially if the dog's new owner isn't fully committed to its well-being.

4. It can put the dog's life in danger


You might think owning a dog is great but you can’t always say the same thing for your recipient. If he feels otherwise and can't return the dog, it might end up in a dog shelter. If the people at the shelter can't find him a new home, he's likely to get euthanized.

5. It creates the wrong impression about dogs


Giving dogs as gifts creates the impression that they are invaluable and disposable. Once the excitement factor wears off after a few days or weeks, the dog can be at risk of neglect. This is actually very common among kids who have very short attention spans and lack the sense of responsibility of taking care of another life.

6. It can cause additional stress


Holidays and important occasions are very stressful. There's food preparation, gift buying, celebrations and gatherings. Because of these factors, training or even setting aside time to feed and walk a new dog can be difficult. Even looking after it during such a busy season can be challenging.

7. It can put the recipient at risk of allergies


A large number of people are allergic to cats and dogs. Some of them don’t even know they have allergies until they become fully exposed to the animal. Even though you have good intentions in giving the gift, you can put the recipient's health at risk.

8. It's usually an impulse decision


Impulse decisions are likely to end up as bad decisions. Before you give in to your kids’ plea about getting a dog as a gift, consider their capabilities to care for it first. If they aren't fully prepared, you can end up taking full responsibility of the dog.
