Sooner or later, most parents are going to be asked: “Please, can we get that Polish Hound puppy?”
Instead of ignoring the question, parents are advised to decide whether the clan is prepared for a new puppy, especially a Polish Hound, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s foremost provider of early childhood education.
When pondering “should you get the Polish Hound” Bergen advises parents weigh the pros and cons of bringing the Polish Hound to the family before acquiescing to a kid’s wishes. “The Polish Hound can teach your kids responsibility and be a wonderful addition to the family-or it can become a chore,” she has said. Bergen recommends families ponder the following before committing:
Things to Ponder Before Deciding Should You Get The Polish Hound Puppy
Who is going to care for the Polish Hound? Parents and children must come to an agreement in advance who is to be the one in charge of feeding, bathing, walking and picking up after the Polish Hound.
Is there room for the Polish Hound, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a fish, a cat, or bird, instead of the Polish Hound. Check your local library or Internet to learn more about Polish Hounds to determine if another breed may be more appropriate for your family.
Raising the Polish Hound is time consuming and can be expensive. The family should realize that they will be expected to forsake other activities to spend time with the Polish Hound. If this prospect seems too much of a committment, parents may think about delaying until the child is committed enough to help raise the Polish Hound.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Polish Hound
Bergen advises the whole family meet the Polish Hound prior to deciding whether to take it home. Rearing the Polish Hound is a huge commitment, so decide carefully before getting one.
