Many New Zealand households have at least one pet, sometimes more. The most popular domestic pets are cats and dogs. Birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, fish and even ferrets are kept as pets, as well as other more unusual species. Make sure you choose a pet that is suited to your lifestyle. You must be responsible and be able to provide all of the basic requirements for your pet - food, water, health care, shelter and in the case of a dog, plenty of exercise.
