Your dog could be tax deductible! If you have a guard dog or working dog the costs associated with their upkeep could be claimed in your tax return.
Things to consider:
· Is your dog a guard dog on site and used to protect your business?
· Do you take your dog to work with you in order to protect your tools of trade?
· Is your dog a working farm dog?
If any of the above apply to you the costs associated with the upkeep of your dog including food and vet bills may be tax deductible.
