Sooner or later, most parents are going to hear: “Mommy, may I get that Molossus puppy?”
Instead of dodging the question, parents should think about if their family is prepared for a new dog, and even moreso a Molossus, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s foremost provider of early childcare.
While asking yourself “should the family get the Molossus” Bergen suggests parents weigh the plusses and minuses of adding the Molossus to the household prior to acquiescing to a child’s wishes. “The Molossus can teach our children about responsibility and be a pleasant addition to your family-or it can be a regret,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen suggests you consider the following before committing:
Things to Ask Yourself Before Answering Should You Get The Molossus Puppy
Who is going to care for the Molossus? Parents and children should come to an agreement beforehand who will be the one in charge of bathing, walking, feeding and picking up after the Molossus.
Is there an area for the Molossus, or does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in apartments or townhouses may prefer a fish, a bird, or cat, rather than the Molossus. Check at the library or online to find out more about Molossuss to learn if another breed may be more suited for the household.
Owning the Molossus is time consuming and can be expensive. Family members has to understand that they will be required to forsake current activities to properly care for the Molossus. If the prospect seems too much of a committment, parents should think about waiting until the child is committed enough to help care for the Molossus.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Molossus
Bergen recommends the entire household meet the Molossus prior to deciding whether to take it home. Rearing the Molossus is a long-term commitment, so decide carefully before getting one.
