Eventually, every parent is going to be asked: “Dad, may I have that Miniature Schnauzer puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents are advised to decide whether or not their clan is ready for a dog, especially a Miniature Schnauzer, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s foremost provider of early childhood education and care.
While thinking about “should the family get the Miniature Schnauzer” Bergen recommends parents evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Miniature Schnauzer to the household before agreeing to a kid’s wishes. “The Miniature Schnauzer can teach kids responsibility and become a wonderful addition to a household-or it can be a mistake,” she said. Bergen advises parents ponder the following before committing:
Questions to Consider Before Deciding Should You Get The Miniature Schnauzer Puppy
Who will care for the Miniature Schnauzer? Households must agree in advance who will be in charge of walking feeding, bathing and picking up after the Miniature Schnauzer.
Do you have room for the Miniature Schnauzer, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in apartments or townhouses may prefer a bird, a fish, or cat, rather than the Miniature Schnauzer. Check your local library or Internet to learn more about Miniature Schnauzers to determine if another breed may be more appropriate for the family.
Rearing the Miniature Schnauzer is time consuming and may be expensive. The family should know that they may have to forsake existing activities to properly care for the Miniature Schnauzer. If that idea is too much of a committment, parents might suggest waiting until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Miniature Schnauzer.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Miniature Schnauzer
Bergen suggests the whole family meet the Miniature Schnauzer prior to committing to take it home. Owning the Miniature Schnauzer is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
