Owning a new pet comes with a lot of excitement, but it’s not a decision to be hurried. Several things need to be put into consideration when looking for a pet that suits your needs. The truth comes to light, especially when looking for a dog. Dogs come in different breeds, with each having its own needs in terms of medical care, physical activities, and many other things.
Rover aims to simplify the process for people looking to own pets. This same company that matches pet owners with boarding services, dog walking, and overnight pet care has launched a tool that considers how different animals understand things and their behavior besides finding data on your way of living.
It uses a combination of factors to determine the best breed of dog for a particular person based on their daily activities. Licensed dog trainer Nicole Ellis was instrumental in the development of the new tool in collaboration with workers at the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City.
The prospect of owning a new dog excites many of us; however, no one should take this lightly. Introducing a new dog has to be put into consideration, like when a new member of the family is brought home. Take into account the needs of the dog and that of other family members.
It’s not always comfortable deciding on the right breed even in cases where you know the kind of dog you want. Thankfully, a new tool courtesy of Rover ensures those looking to own a pet know the dog that best suits their needs. Licensed dog trainer Nicole Ellis worked with staff at the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City to design the Dog Breed Selector. The team gathered together data used by the tool.
