Now I have one beagle boy 5month as of this month.
Dog makes your life happy and give you healing power (Of course, sometime I frustrated with him).
1. Too many stray dogs.
It is major and the most difficult problem.
Dog need walking daily, even you have large apartment.
But as you know if you have ever walked Yangon town, there is so many dogs in array, under the sidecar, opening YCDC garbage box.
They have possibility of Rabies.
You must protect your dog and yourself.
Can you drive them away by yourself?
If not, you should not have your pet.

2. Dog food supply is not stable.
What are you going to feed your lovely partner?As of now, 3-4 major dog foods in Yangon supermarket.
You can find pro-use dog food which packed in clear plastic bag. But highly I never recommend it if you love your cute dog.
And reliable products are only 2 for me.
But major supermarkets(Ocean/CityMart/RubyMart) sold out them often.
Last week only food for puppy, and this week only for that for adult dog.
On basically, dogs prefer to eat one dog food taste.
You have to ready to have your dog learn the taste by mix some kind of dog food.
3. Few reliable hospital.
Almost pet owner said this vet is the best in Yangon.
But always you will be in waiting row.
4. Possibility of sickly puppies
It’s just an rumor but, when you buy puppy, they will be purchased from Thailand. And as rumor, Good health puppies are send for domestic. sickly or some trouble on health, they send to Myanmar.
On basically, pet shop request 50% deposit beforehand to ready several puppies for candidate.
If goes so, You have no choice than to select from them, even the all have the problem.
I’m not sure this is truth or not, but if you worrying, you have to go and select actually.
(I needed beagle but beagle was rare in Myanmar. Fortunately I could meet good health beagle puppy. Fortunately.)
5. Too many trashed at road side.
Dogs likely to have interest trashes on the way to walking.
Sometime they eat and lick them.
Burmese people often throw snack, rotten food, cigaret, chewing tobacco.
You, parent of your dog must give attention anytime when you are walking with your dog.
Owner can choice dog, but dogs can’t choice owners.
Hope your happy yangon life!!
