Being a dog owner comes with a lot of responsibilities. Walking them, giving them water and nutritional food, keeping them supplied with toys, playing with them, and taking them to the vet for check-ups are all key pieces in keeping your pup safe, happy, and healthy. However, one duty that many dog owners forget about or neglect is getting their dogs licensed.
