A Financial Guide to Owning a Dog

Want to find out how much it costs to own a dog? Adding a furry baby to your life can bring you many benefits but dogs can be pricey when looked after properly. With the help of RSPCA we've estimated the total cost for a dog at about $1,000 per annum, not including unexpected health problems. At Greater Bank we created this infographic because many owners end up abandoning their puppy after realising the real cost of owning a dog. Check out the expenses checklist in this infographic to tackle issues around planning and budgeting for buying a pet.

We have also listed ways to reduce your pet costs. There are simple things you can do to reduce the cost of owning a dog like buying your pet from a shelter. If you buy your dog from RSPCA or a local shelter, your dog will already be de-sexed, wormed, vaccinated and trained which will save you money while providing a home to a pet in need.
