Eventually, you are going to be asked: “Dad, can we get that Pumi puppy?”
Instead of avoiding the question, parents should ponder if the family is prepared for a puppy, especially a Pumi, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s foremost provider of early childhood care and education.
When pondering “should the family get the Pumi” Bergen suggests that parents evaluate the plusses and minuses of bringing the Pumi to the family prior to agreeing to a kid’s wishes. “The Pumi can teach our kids about responsibility and become a great addition to the household-or it can become a chore,” she said. Bergen recommends you think about the following before committing:
Questions to Think About Before Answering Should You Get The Pumi Puppy
Who is going to care for the Pumi? Households should agree beforehand who is to be the one in charge of bathing, feeding, walking and cleaning up after the Pumi.
Do you have space for the Pumi, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a bird, a cat, or fish, instead of the Pumi. Check at the library or Internet to learn more about Pumis to decide if another animal may be more suited for your household.
Owning the Pumi is time consuming and may be expensive. Family members must understand that they will be required to give up current activities to spend time with the Pumi. If that thought seems too much of a committment, parents may think about waiting until the child is old enough to help raise the Pumi.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Pumi
Bergen suggests the whole family meet the Pumi prior to deciding whether to take it home. Rearing the Pumi is a huge commitment, so decide carefully before adopting a furry new family member.
