Top 5 Exotic Dogs

Exotic Dogs | dog fence The vogue in exotic dog breeds continues with people across the world seeking out more and more rare, interesting and exciting examples as pets. While some take it to the extreme with a quick Google search revealing that the ignorant uninitiated out there ready are seemingly to hop on the first cheap flights to Cape Town they can find in order to attempt to adopt an African Wild Dog as a personal pet, there are a number of rare and exotic breeds that can be purchased and kept as domestic pets by the right owners.

Before Choosing an Exotic Dog Breed

While the allure of owning an exotic dog breed is strong, it is important that potential dog owners choose wisely when selecting a new member of their household. A few important points to bear in mind include:

• Cost – keeping a dog of any kind is costly. Would be owners should remember to factor in food bills for the size of dog they are considering as well as looking at insurance costs for the breed in question.
• Commitment – being a dog owner requires a high level of commitment. Potential owners need to ask themselves if they really have the necessary time to commit to a new pet. Think about the animal’s need for exercise and company – exotic dog breeds can be rewarding pets but will also place constraints on the owner’s lifestyle.
• Confidence – before selecting an exotic breed possible pet owners should look at their level of confidence and choose a dog that they will feel confident taking charge of and training. It is an owner’s responsibility to keep their dog in check so people should be realistic when buying.

Low-Maintenance Pets

While many families opt to have a dog as the family pet, they are not always the best choice. Between working, going to an east coast law school and my husband in a full-time nursing degree program, we needed a pet that didn’t require a lot of attention and didn’t mind the cold weather. My kids begged for a dog, but when we presented them with much “cooler” options, they were happy to oblige.

Here is a list of the top five low-maintenance pets:

1.      Snakes- Snakes are fairly simple pets to keep. They stay in their cage all day, unless you want to take them out, and are quite easy to maintain. If you are squeamish, however, you may want to avoid them as you most likely will have to feed them mice. Snakes are definitely not for everyone, but can make great pets for those who are well aware of everything that goes into properly taking care of them.

2.      Spiders- While some people are scared even at the mention of spiders, these creatures can make great pets. They require small cages, easy cleaning and simple maintenance. You definitely want to keep them in their cage, and they are more for just observing, but many people love having them as pets. Tarantulas are great because so many people are fascinated by them and are fairly inexpensive.

Be sure to buy spiders from reputable pet stores or breeders.

3.      Birds- From parakeets to love birds to cockatiels, birds are wonderful pets that are great alternatives to dogs. The biggest task with birds is cleaning their cage, but other than that, they are simple to care for. You can train them to repeat what you say and even sing songs on demand.

Some birds can even be very loving and nestle into your neck!

4.      Turtles- Turtles are fun pets with low maintenance needs. All that they require is making sure its habitat has enough light, shade, moisture, clean water, a basking lamp, and of course, food. The lamp is very important because they generally require 12 hours of sunlight, and using the right UV lamp will help the turtle get the amount of vitamin D3 it requires to stay healthy.

You can buy turtles that are very small and live in an indoor cage or even bigger turtles that can live in your backyard.

5.      Iguanas – Iguanas are the most popular type of pet lizard and for good reason. They are very fun animals to have and do not require much maintenance. Like turtles, they must be supplied with the proper basking light so that they can soak up the Vitamin D that their bodies need. They tend to stay in their cage all day to absorb the light, but can be taken out to be played with as well.

One advantage of these pets is that they don’t make any noise and won’t become a nuisance like a barking dog might.
