It's hard to put a price tag on all the GOOD stuff dogs do for us . . . like keeping us company, giving us a reason to go on walks, and protecting us by barking at EVERYTHING. But we can put a price on all the BAD stuff they do.
According to a new study, the average dog does $392 worth of damage to stuff around the house every year. Making them the MOST destructive pet you can own . . . unless you've got a water buffalo in your apartment or something.
The second most destructive pet is a cat, but they didn't give a dollar figure. And the pet that causes the LEAST amount of destruction is a guinea pig. Although a fish has to be right up there too.
