Some crucial things you should consider before adopting a pet:
Do you have other pets in your house? Where some pets can get along great others can simply tear your house down and also your peace! For your personal workplace wellness programs, pets can be quite possessive and usually do not appreciate a newcomer who too wants to get a share of your attention. When you already have a pet or a few, the best way to introduce a new pet into your house is to take is slow. Make your new pet spend a few minutes around the old pets and keep increasing the time day after day. Yes, there will be some growling or scratching, but it’s just a phase and it sure will pass with time.
What kind of a home environment do you like to maintain? If you like to keep your place neat and tidy without the couches being scratched and the carpets being free of animal hair, than an active or a hairy pet is what you will have to avoid. You can opt for pets that are confined to their own space, such as hamsters or fish etc. But if it’s ok for your pets to mess the house around or fit into your personal workplace wellness programs as you might have a maid who takes care of the cleaning daily anyway, you can opt for a dog or a cat.
