Eventually, most parents are going to hear: “Mom, can we get that Lhasa Apso puppy?”
Instead of avoiding the question, parents should consider whether or not the clan is ready for a new dog, especially a Lhasa Apso, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s foremost provider of early childhood education.
When considering “should the family get the Lhasa Apso” Bergen recommends the parents weigh the benefits and drawbacks of bringing the Lhasa Apso to the household prior to acquiescing to a kid’s request. “The Lhasa Apso can teach our children responsibility and become a welcome addition to your household-or it can be a regret,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen advises families ponder the following before deciding:
Things to Think About Before Deciding Should You Get The Lhasa Apso Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Lhasa Apso? Parents and kids should come to an agreement beforehand who will be in charge of bathing, walking, feeding and cleaning up after the Lhasa Apso.
Do you have room for the Lhasa Apso, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a fish, a cat, or bird, rather than the Lhasa Apso. Check with the library or online to learn more about Lhasa Apsos to determine if another dog may be more appropriate for your household.
Being the owner of the Lhasa Apso is time consuming and can be expensive. The family must realize that they are required to forsake existing activities to spend time with the Lhasa Apso. If this requirement is too much of a committment, you should consider delaying until the child is committed enough to help raise the Lhasa Apso.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Lhasa Apso
Bergen recommends the entire household meet the Lhasa Apso in advance of deciding whether to take it home. Rearing the Lhasa Apso is a big commitment, so think carefully before adopting a furry new family member.
