Eventually, every parent is likely to hear: “Mom, may I have that Airedale Terrier puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents are advised to ponder whether or not the clan is ready for a new dog, and even moreso a Airedale Terrier, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s foremost provider of early childhood education and care.
When deciding “should we get the Airedale Terrier” Bergen recommends that parents evaluate the plusses and minuses of bringing the Airedale Terrier to the family before agreeing to a kid’s wishes. “The Airedale Terrier can teach kids responsibility and be a pleasant addition to a family-or it can be a regret,” she is quoted as saying.

Things to Ask Yourself Before Deciding Should You Get The Airedale Terrier Puppy
Who will care for the Airedale Terrier? Parents and kids should come to an agreement beforehand who will be responsible for feeding, bathing, walking and cleaning up after the Airedale Terrier.
Do you have an area for the Airedale Terrier, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in apartments or townhouses may prefer a fish, a cat, or bird, instead of the Airedale Terrier. Check the library or online to learn more about Airedale Terriers to determine if another animal may be more appropriate for the household.
Raising the Airedale Terrier is time consuming and not cheap. Your family must realize that they will have to forego current activities to spend time with the Airedale Terrier. If the prospect is too much of a committment, you may want to suggest postponing until the child is old enough to help care for the Airedale Terrier.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Airedale Terrier
Bergen suggests the entire family meet the Airedale Terrier in advance of deciding whether to take it home. Raising the Airedale Terrier is a big commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
