Sooner or later, every parent is going to be asked: “Dad, can we get that Laekenois puppy?”
Rather than ignore the question, parents should think about whether or not their family is prepared for a puppy, and even moreso a Laekenois, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s foremost provider of early childcare.
While pondering “should the family get the Laekenois” Bergen suggests that parents ascertain the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Laekenois to the family before agreeing to a kid’s wishes. “The Laekenois can teach our kids about responsibility and be a great addition to a family-or it can be a chore,” she said. Bergen advises families ponder the following before deciding:
Things to Consider Before Deciding Should You Get The Laekenois Puppy
Who is going to care for the Laekenois? Families should come to an agreement beforehand who will be the one responsible for bathing, feeding, walking and picking up after the Laekenois.
Is there room for the Laekenois, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a bird, a fish, or cat, instead of the Laekenois. Check your library or Internet to learn more about Laekenoiss to learn if another pet may be more appropriate for the family.
Rearing the Laekenois is time consuming and can be expensive. Family members must know that they will be expected to forego current activities to properly care for the Laekenois. If this requirement is too much of a committment, you may want to think about waiting until the child is responsible enough to help raise the Laekenois.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Laekenois
Bergen recommends the entire household meet the Laekenois in advance of agreeing to take it home. Getting the Laekenois is a huge commitment, so decide carefully before adopting one.
