Sooner or later, every parent is going to be asked: “Dad, can I get that Brazilian Terrier puppy?”
Rather than dodge the question, parents should think about if the clan is ready for a puppy, and even moreso a Brazilian Terrier, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s leading provider of early childhood education.
While thinking about “should you get the Brazilian Terrier” Bergen suggests parents evaluate the positives and negatives of adding the Brazilian Terrier to the family prior to giving in to a kid’s wishes. “The Brazilian Terrier can teach our kids responsibility and become a welcome addition to your family-or it can become a mistake,” she said.

Things to Think About Before Answering Should You Get The Brazilian Terrier Puppy
Who will care for the Brazilian Terrier? Parents and children must come to an agreement in advance who will be the one in charge of bathing, walking, feeding and picking up after the Brazilian Terrier.
Do you have room for the Brazilian Terrier, or does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in townhouses or apartments may be better suited to a cat, a bird or fish, rather than the Brazilian Terrier. Check your local library or Internet to find out more about Brazilian Terriers to decide if another breed may be more appropriate for your family.
Raising the Brazilian Terrier is a big committment and not cheap. Family members has to realize that they are required to forego existing activities to properly care for the Brazilian Terrier. If the idea is too much of a committment, you should think about waiting until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Brazilian Terrier.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Brazilian Terrier
Bergen recommends the entire household meet the Brazilian Terrier prior to agreeing to take it home. Owning the Brazilian Terrier is a huge commitment, so decide carefully before adopting one.
