Eventually, every parent is likely to be asked: “Mommy, can we get that Old English Terrier puppy?”
Instead of dodging the question, parents should think about whether their clan is ready for a new dog, and even moreso a Old English Terrier, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this nation’s leading provider of early childcare.
When considering “should the family get the Old English Terrier” Bergen recommends parents evaluate the plusses and minuses of bringing the Old English Terrier to the family prior to giving in to a kid’s wish. “The Old English Terrier can teach children about responsibility and be a wonderful addition to the household-or it can be a regret,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen suggests you ponder the following before deciding:
Things to Ask Before Deciding Should You Get The Old English Terrier Puppy
Who will care for the Old English Terrier? Families should agree beforehand who is to be the one responsible for bathing, walking, feeding and cleaning up after the Old English Terrier.
Is there an area for the Old English Terrier, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a bird, a cat, or fish, instead of the Old English Terrier. Check the library or Internet to learn more about Old English Terriers to learn if another pet may be more suited for the household.
Owning the Old English Terrier is a big committment and can be expensive. The family should realize that they are expected to forsake current activities to properly care for the Old English Terrier. If that prospect seems too much of a committment, you may consider delaying until the child is old enough to help raise the Old English Terrier.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Old English Terrier
Bergen advises the whole household meet the Old English Terrier in advance of agreeing to take it home. Getting the Old English Terrier is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before adopting a furry new family member.
