The cost of a dog Print E-mail
Thursday, 21 December 2017 15:47

Recent research commissioned by comparethemarket.com found that owning a dog over a nine year lifetime can cost more than £25,000.  Obviously vet bills, food and other expenses will be highest for some of the larger breeds but costs for even the cheapest - the beagle - still average £15,000.

While we are talking money, we have been sad to see just how much some owners are spending on their dogs this Christmas.  Does any dog really need a £500 bed, £800 outfit or even a roast turkey dinner?  Honestly, all a dog needs is to spend the day with the family he loves, a brisk walk whatever the weather, his usual food and, if necessary, a safe bolthole from noisy boisterous children. 

Happy Christmas to you all!
