My favorite animals at the petting zoo have always been the adorable baby goats! These goofy, little guys can make even the grumpiest person smile with their bubbly personalities and bouncy antics.

With baby goats being so endearing and adorable, it may come as little surprise that keeping goats as backyard pets is becoming much more common! If you're looking to adopt a goat as a dairy producer for your household or just as a new family pet, you're sure to fall in love with these friendly farm animals!

Things to Consider Before Owning a Goat

Whether you already decided to buy a goat or are just considering getting one, here are a few frequently asked questions you might have about owning a goat.

Are you allowed to have a pet goat?

Goats are considered livestock. If you live on hobby farm already, this is probably no concern for you, but if you're looking to keep your goat in the backyard of your urban home, it's best to check your city and neighborhood's rules about keeping farm animals as pets. It's possible they may not allow them or only allow small breeds up to a certain size.

What are the smallest breeds of goats?

The Nigerian-Dwarf is one of the most popular small breeds and is a great milk producer. Pygmy goats are the smallest meat breed, but also make great pets. Pygoras are the smallest fiber producing goats.

Can a goat be a house pet?

Regardless of their size, goats don't make great house pets. They're generally considered destructive and difficult to house-break. Every goat is different though, so if you're determined to keep your goat inside, make sure you goat-proof the area (take out anything you don't want chewed up!).

How much space does a goat need?

Goats don't need a lot of space, especially the smaller breeds. They only need about 200–250 sq feet of space per goat. A general rule of thumb is 2–10 goats on an acre-sized lot, depending on the level of grass and shrubs for them to munch on.

Do goats need a companion?

Goats are considered herd animals, which means they are happiest when they're among others of their kind. If you're not ready to bring home more than one goat to start, no worries, these friendly animals get along with most cats and dogs, as well as sheep, horses, and donkeys.

What is a good name for a goat?

Did you know that goats are actually pretty smart and can learn their name? They can even be taught to come when called. With that said, choosing a good name for a goat will not only be important to you but to them as well! To help you find some good goat names, here are over 350 name ideas to graze through!
