    Take note of needs and wants.
    Needs and wants are different. You should take the time to look around your friend's or relative's house and see what might be a good addition for the dog(s). If you get something that is needed, it will show that you are sensitive enough to determine what will make the dog's and the dog lover's lives a lot easier. If you give something that is wanted, you will get high points for paying attention.
