Vet expenses aren't exactly cheap. While the average cost for euthanization and cremation of a dog ranges between $150 to $300, you can still expect a vet to charge anywhere from $50 to $300 and up for euthanization alone.

Persistent and incurable inability to eat, vomiting, signs of pain, distress or discomfort, or difficulty in breathing are all indications that euthanasia should be considered. You and your family know your dog better than anyone else, so try to make a reasoned judgement on his or her quality of life.

Doggy beds and pillows haven't always been around, so wild dogs had to pat down tall grass and underbrush to make a comfortable bed for themselves and their pups.

The easiest way to prepare that night's sleeping area was by walking around in a circle.

The rounding ritual may also have served as a safety precaution.

Age. As a general rule, dogs mature to full-size around 12 to 18 months, with some large breeds taking up to two years.

When a dog matures does factor into when the dog begins to calm down - but dogs of many breeds don't calm down when they become adults.

Long-term behavior changes are usually positive if the spay or neuter was performed at a young age.

For example, male dogs may become less aggressive.

This means that some dogs will "calm down" over the next few months, while others may take years to calm down.

The euthanasia medication most vets use is pentobarbital, a seizure medication. In large doses, it quickly renders the pet unconscious. It shuts down their heart and brain functions usually within one or two minutes. It is usually given by an IV injection in one of their legs.

It is possible that a dog can be put down for biting someone, but it won't happen in most cases. When a dog is put down, it's usually because there is a history of aggression including the dog having bitten in the past.

A lot of owners find their dog chills out more after being neutered whether they're male or female. While neutering your dog might help to calm them down a bit, sometimes that's not the only cause of a dog being a bit much… Neutering your dog will only do so much to calm them down – the rest is up to you.
