Sooner or later, every parent is going to hear: “Dad, may I have that Beauceron puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents are advised to consider whether their clan is prepared for a puppy, and even moreso a Beauceron, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s leading provider of early childcare.
When considering “should you get the Beauceron” Bergen advises that parents evaluate the plusses and minuses of adding the Beauceron to the household prior to agreeing to a child’s wish. “The Beauceron can teach kids responsibility and become a pleasant addition to a family-or it can become a regret,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen advises families ponder the following before committing:
Questions to Consider Before Answering Should You Get The Beauceron Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Beauceron? Households should come to an agreement in advance who will be the one in charge of feeding, walking, bathing and picking up behind the Beauceron.
Do you have space for the Beauceron, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in townhouses or apartments may prefer a cat, a bird or fish, instead of the Beauceron. Check your local library or online to discover more about Beaucerons to determine if another breed may be more suited for your household.
Raising the Beauceron is a big committment and not cheap. Family members has to realize that they will have to forego current activities to spend time with the Beauceron. If that requirement seems too daunting, parents should suggest delaying until the child is committed enough to help care for the Beauceron.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Beauceron
Bergen recommends the whole family meet the Beauceron before agreeing to take it home. Rearing the Beauceron is a huge commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
