The nose knows! Your dog can detect odors about a billion times better than you can.
The average lifespan of a dog varies from 8 to 16 years, depending on breed type, size, genetics and care.
The annual cost of a small dog—including food, veterinary care, toys and license—is $420. Make that $620 for a medium dog and $780 for a large pooch. This figure doesn’t include capital expenses for spay/neuter surgery, collar and leash, carrier and crate.
