  • Cleanin up its poo
  • The cost of care, food, vet bills. Having to walk it each day, clean up after it, be there to play with it, give it discipline. Not much different than any other pet, or children for that matter.
  • It's a serious commitment to have a dog! The biggest disadvantage is that a dog needs to be let outside regularly...a minimum of three times a day. I'm lucky that I had two housemates and each of us could commit to take a shift...morning, afternoon and night. Secondly, puppies are fun, adorable, etc. However, that rambunctious puppy needs LOTS of attention and will be paper training and inadvertently chewing on your furniture for several (6++) months. Don't buy (or have) nice, new furniture and then get a puppy! Good luck...
  • None. Everyone should have a dog, Dammit!
  • Finding someone to look after he/she when you're away.
  • The only thing i struggle with is going on holiday, i dont like putting them in kennels and i dont trust anyone else to look after them!!!!
  • I really can't think of a DISADVANTAGE to having a dog ... My litle boy is just like part of the family ... I don't know what I'd do if something happen to him ... The ONLY "Disadvantage" is that I have to go out in the yard a couple times a week and Clean Up where he has went to the bathroom ..... Other than that; he is a Blessing and a JOY to have.
  • Finding a place that will rent to a dog/pet owner. Than finding one and having to pay out the a$$ to stay there.
  • To everybody else in the outside world your house STINKS! And you can't wear nice clothes at home because your dog is bound to jump up with muddy paws/drool on you/take a nap on the sweater you left lying around. I love them though =)
  • Its odor and its parasites.
  • vacations... finding a place for him if you go out of town, but he's worth it. Yes he is, yes he is!!!
  • you have to be home every 3 hrs to walk it , the expense ,and going away for the weekend or on vacation can be a pain and kennels are expensive this is why i have a cat i can go away for 5 days and he is fine anything more than that and it starts to smell
  • that you have to turn off your defense turrets
  • You better have that caregiver nature, because they are very needy as a rule.
  • They're pretty high maintenance - unlike cats who are self-sufficient for the most part.
  • That you cant give them all a home.
  • We have to feed him!
  • Hair on your clothes and furniture
  • You can never again complain that nobody loves you.
  • The absolutely worst thing about having a dog is that they are not with you forever. If you really love your dog, they become just like one of your children. Mine passed away when he was only ten years old. I felt like I lost a ten-year old child...I was deeply grieved, because he was wonderful, smart and loving. Ten years is a very short period. Following that experience, I decided not to have another dog...none could ever replace him...and I wouldn't want to go through that sadness again. +5
  • You can't eat them, spend them or sleep with them.
  • picking up poop after them cost of food cost of vet bills - be prepared for ongoing conditions that meds will have to be paid for regularly when they go roll around in fox poop then washing them after general messes they make allergic friends not able to come over having to be home at regular intervals to let them out walking them in the rain/snow/ice/at the crack of dawn barking at the tv/postman/something not trusting others to look after it so going on holidays where you gotta take the dog tis like caring for a baby that never grows up.
  • When it gets old and pees everywhere and you watch it start to die...
  • You have to ask someone to take care of your dog when you go somewhere by plane.
  • There are LOTS of disadvantages. Even though I love my 9 year old german shepherd to death, he's not all sunshine and roses. Here are a few problems I can think of. 1. They get more expensive as they get older. I spent over $7,000 in vets bills this year dealing with a health issue. 2. They are destructive. Even the best trained and behaved dog has claws, teeth and illness issues. I've had to replace carpets, have wooden floors refinished and put in new linoleum because of my best friend. 3. They need lots of time and attention. This cuts down on travel and spur of the moment fun. 4. Not everyone loves them as much as you do. You can lose friends and even relationships over dogs. 5. They can destroy your landscaping 6. If they are escape artists, you can have some heavy legal responsibility, even if they are very good dogs. The BEST of dogs will mess up the property of others and perhaps chase or even kill other pets and livestock.

  • When some couples split up, they have a custody battle over the dog.
  • Fleas...
