Bringing a pet home is a step you cannot revert from and that is why, no matter how attracting getting a pet seems, it always has to be pondered upon wisely. And once you are sure of getting a pet, don’t wait for some astrologer to tell you about the right time to get one; anytime is the right time. But seriously speaking, there has to be a proper discussion, analysis, and evaluation before finalizing anything. So when is actually the best time to get a pet? Let us know.

Your Lifestyle

It plays a very crucial role in deciding which pet to get and when to get. If you’re more of a stay at home person and have ample amount of time to dedicate to pet care-taking, you can bring home the ones that need a lot of pampering, exercising and other related activities. If you are a busy person, you should try to get a pet whose energy level is lower than your own. Choose a breed that is perfect for you. The decision to get a pet depends on a lot of factors; the most significant ones being your schedule and your puppy’s temperament. Do a detailed study on the characteristics of the various breed and how they will go with your own personality. Once that is done, you also need to ensure that you have a routine flexible enough that can adjust a pet in it.


Most pet owners and pet service providers agree that spring or summer is the optimal seasons for adding a four-legged friend to your family. Warmer months and sunshine is ideal for the housebreaking of your pets; you get longer days and can have more playtime and walks. In our opinion, another thing to keep in mind is the season in which you are free. Because of this only, it is recommended to get the pets in holidays. As, when you are free and available, you will be able to create a bond properly with the pet in its initial days. Bonding can be a little more difficult if the pet is grown up.

Furthermore, falls, winters or monsoon is never recommended for getting a pet because they are sensitive and you cannot take them out in that kind of weather. House training is very difficult as well. Taking care of pets in monsoon is a troublesome task.


Your kids’ age, their temperament, empathy; all matters when you are about to get a pet. Don’t get a pet if the kids are very small. It will be like adding one more child to your family. Your child should at least be school going at the time of getting a pet. When a child starts going to school, he/she interacts with other kids, will learn empathy and will also learn to bear the responsibility (for things such as homework, doing work on time etc.). Also, if your kid is somehow scared of animals, or a bully maybe, it is important to first work on your kid then get a pet. It is essential that your family is as enthusiastic and friendly as you are with the idea of getting a pet.

Trust us; you would not want to have a bad timing when it comes to getting a pet and raising a kid. Don’t get a pet when your kid himself is crawling.

Pet Expenditure

Get a pet when you are ready to afford one. If you are going to be a pet parent for the first time, get a pet that is easy to train. If your pet is hard to train, you may need to get a pet trainer ahead. So keep in mind all the money you will need to spend; therefore, get a pet when your pocket allows. Don’t get emotional while making this decision. While getting a pet is very alluring, serving and caring for one has to be financially thought upon as well. It matters a lot more when you have a family that depends on you.
