Sooner or later, every parent is going to hear: “Dad, may I have that Bolognese puppy?”
Instead of dodging the question, parents are advised to consider whether or not their family is ready for a new puppy, especially a Bolognese, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s foremost provider of early childcare.
When thinking about “should we get the Bolognese” Bergen recommends parents ascertain the pros and cons of bringing the Bolognese to the family before acquiescing to a child’s wishes. “The Bolognese can teach our children about responsibility and become a pleasant addition to the household-or it can be a mistake,” she said. Bergen suggests families consider the following before committing:
Questions to Ask Before Answering Should You Get The Bolognese Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Bolognese? Parents and children must agree in advance who will be responsible for feeding, bathing, walking and picking up after the Bolognese.
Is there space for the Bolognese, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families living in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a fish, a cat, or bird, instead of the Bolognese. Check at the library or online to learn more about Bologneses to learn if another breed may be more appropriate for your family.
Owning the Bolognese is a big committment and may be expensive. Family members must understand that they are required to forego existing activities to properly care for the Bolognese. If this thought turns out to be too much of a committment, parents may consider delaying until the child is committed enough to help care for the Bolognese.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Bolognese
Bergen advises the entire family meet the Bolognese before deciding to take it home. Rearing the Bolognese is a big commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
