Are you planning on getting a dog anytime soon? If so, it's important to consider all the responsibilities it takes to be a good dog owner. Dogs can playful and fun but it is also a responsibility and a daily commitment. You have to take care of a dog in all kinds of ways, which takes time and money. Plus, it can be expensive. Keep reading to learn about the costs of being a prepared and responsible owner to have a happy dog.
Food is one of the most important and, at the same time, expensive items that you need for taking care of a dog. A puppy usually eats 2-3 cups of dog food a day, which means in a week they would eat a total of about 7 pounds of food. Read on to find out how much it would cost to feed a dog for a year.

A fifteen-pound bag of dog food costs $42.99 and lasts about two weeks, so two bags would cost $86 and last one month.

But there's a cheaper option: One 30-pound bag would last one month and cost only $63, which means it would cost $756 for a year of food. This option is clearly more affordable. Check the notes in the back of the book to find out the brand name of the food.
