I spend about $25 I think on dog food from costco and it usually lasts 2 months. I have a wild pit bull, 2.5 years old, needs lots of exercise and would eat nonstop if I let her. I keep her in her crate while we're gone, because I don't trust her not to get into everything since she has so much energy. I do take her on a good 45-60 minute walk every morning, so that she's tired enough to nap during the day. Dogs can always be trained not to go all over the house, but it's more about keeping them on a good schedule where you take them out consistently enough that they have the opportunity to poo outside. Don't use puppy pads as back ups because it is extremely hard to get them to stop going where the pads have been. Not all dogs like to play fetch, but you are highly likely to get one that does if you go with a retriever. there are ways to train them to fetch though, but I've never had to train it into a dog
The biggest drawbacks are vet expenses, time, and needing dog sitters or a kennel should you need to leave town.
