Responsible dog ownership

Having a dog can be a great and rewarding relationship. However, it is also a very big commitment, demanding time, money and care. Before getting a dog you should think about your lifestyle and carefully consider what kind of dog you get, and where you get it from.

How to find the dog that’s right for you?

Think carefully about what kind of dog will best suit you – how big is your family, and if you live in an apartment or a house with a garden this will all affect the most suitable dogs for your lifestyle? Have you owned a dog before? Do some research to make sure that the kind of dog you are looking for is well suited to your family and your everyday life.

Be a responsible owner and neuter your dog – it’s simply the best choice for you and your pet.
At the Manchester and Cheshire Dogs home we’ve lots of dogs all looking for new homes , so there are plenty to choose from! When you visit our dogs homes, our staff will ask about your home and lifestyle to help find the right dog for you.

All our dogs are micro-chipped and given a  health check – including primary vaccinations and treatment for worms and fleas – before going to their new homes. We also give you a collar and four weeks’ free insurance, all of which are covered by an adoption fee.
