Sooner or later, every parent is likely to be asked: “Please, may I get that Japanese Chin puppy?”
Instead of ignoring the question, parents should think about whether or not their clan is prepared for a new puppy, and even moreso a Japanese Chin, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s leading provider of early childcare.
While considering “should the family get the Japanese Chin” Bergen recommends parents evaluate the positives and negatives of bringing the Japanese Chin to the family before acquiescing to a kid’s wishes. “The Japanese Chin can teach your kids about responsibility and be a welcome addition to your family-or it can become a burden,” she has said. Bergen advises families consider the following before deciding:
Things to Ask Before Answering Should You Get The Japanese Chin Puppy
Who is going to care for the Japanese Chin? Households should agree in advance who is to be responsible for walking feeding, bathing and picking up after the Japanese Chin.
Do you have an area for the Japanese Chin, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in townhouses or apartments may be better suited to a bird, a fish, or cat, instead of the Japanese Chin. Check your local library or online to discover more about Japanese Chins to determine if another dog may be more suited for your family.
Rearing the Japanese Chin is a big committment and not cheap. Your family should realize that they may have to give up other activities to spend time with the Japanese Chin. If that idea is too much of a committment, you might suggest delaying until the child is old enough to help raise the Japanese Chin.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Japanese Chin
Bergen suggests the entire household meet the Japanese Chin before deciding whether to take it home. Raising the Japanese Chin is a huge commitment, so decide carefully before adopting one.
