There are many people all around the globe who own dogs for pets. Alongside cats, dogs are also popular choices as companions. Each year, more than a million new purebred dogs are registered with the AKC (American Kennel Club), the main organization for purebreds in the United States.

If you would like to get a dog, you could either get a purebred or a mongrel or mutt. The former is a canine whose parents and ancestors come from the same breed of dogs. On the other hand, the latter comes from a mixed breed. If you would like to get a purebred, you could ask a veterinarian or a kennel club if they know someone who is a good dog breeder. Once you get to the breeder, you would have to be prepared for a lot of questions since the dealer would have to make sure that you would be able to provide a good home for the puppy. If you would like to have a mixed breed, then you could find one in animal shelters. You could also look at newspaper ads for anyone who is currently selling mixed breeds. You must look for a puppy that is happy, clean, and outgoing. You would also have to make sure that the puppy is at least eight weeks old before you adopt or purchase it.

After you have gotten your pet puppy, one of the things that you could do for it is to get insured. There are a lot of companies that offer pet dog insurance. You would be able to see their ads in certain sections of the newspaper or in certain magazines. You would also be able to find pet dog insurance companies by searching online. You would be able to get health and liability insurance aside from other various services. Since you would have a wide selection of insurance companies, you would be able to determine which one would be able to give you the best deal at the lowest rate.
