Sooner or later, most parents are likely to hear: “Daddy, can I get that Landseer puppy?”
Instead of dodging the question, parents are advised to decide if the family is prepared for a new dog, especially a Landseer, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s foremost provider of early childhood education.
When deciding “should the family get the Landseer” Bergen recommends parents weigh the pros and cons of bringing the Landseer to the family before acquiescing to a kid’s wishes. “The Landseer can teach our kids responsibility and become a wonderful addition to the family-or it can be a regret,” she said. Bergen suggests parents think about the following before committing:
Things to Think About Before Deciding Should You Get The Landseer Puppy
Who is going to care for the Landseer? Households must come to an agreement beforehand who is to be in charge of feeding, walking, bathing and cleaning up after the Landseer.
Is there an area for the Landseer, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a bird, a fish, or cat, rather than the Landseer. Check your local library or Internet to discover more about Landseers to learn if another animal may be more appropriate for your household.
Being the owner of the Landseer is a big committment and may be expensive. Your family should know that they are expected to forsake current activities to spend time with the Landseer. If this prospect turns out to be too daunting, parents may consider postponing until the child is old enough to help care for the Landseer.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Landseer
Bergen suggests the whole household meet the Landseer before agreeing to take it home. Getting the Landseer is a huge commitment, so decide carefully before adopting a furry new family member.
