This.  Dogs are a ton more work than cats.  Puppies even more than dogs.  Especially the main caregiver needs to be 100 fully on board before welcoming a new family member for the next 10 plus years that will take a lot of love, patience, time, training - both manners training and house training, resources, money, walks, socialization, attention, and all the other things they require.
