    I asked this before but I need to see what everyone thinks is the most important things that people should learn?

    Also, would you want to see events or demos?

    That is a good question, I think a responsible pet owner should do this Before adopting:

    1. Research your pet, the breed of your pet, etc. Make sure you know asmuch as possible about the animal you are about to bring into your home.
    2. Buy all the necessary basics and have them ready when you bring your new friend home

    After adopting:
    1. Find a good Vet close to your area, and be prepared to take your new friend to the vet for all the necessary check-ups, and at the drop of a hat at the first sign of illness. I feel that if someone can't afford to take their animal to a vet, they shouldn't have one.

    2. Make sure your animal is in the best environment possible. when you adopt an animal you take full responsiblity for its well being, so a person should be able to give that animal the best life possible

    3. Be prepared to have your pet in your family for the REST of its life. I feel that if someone is not sure they can make a lifetime commitment to an animal, they should not adopt one.

    Thats all I can think of for now

    Definitely how to research the animal that they are going to be getting and finding out what food, living arrangement, etc. is best.

    As for dogs, care of puppies! Socialization and house training being two huge issues. Even with older dogs how to socialize them with the family and with other dogs if they have one already.
