Sooner or later, every parent is going to be asked: “Please, can I get that Puli puppy?”
Rather than dodge the question, parents should ponder whether the clan is prepared for a new puppy, and even moreso a Puli, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s leading provider of early childcare.
While pondering “should we get the Puli” Bergen suggests the parents weigh the pros and cons of bringing the Puli to the household prior to agreeing to a child’s wish. “The Puli can teach our kids about responsibility and be a pleasant addition to your household-or it can be a mistake,” she says. Bergen suggests families consider the following before deciding:
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Answering Should You Get The Puli Puppy
Who will care for the Puli? Households should agree beforehand who is to be in charge of bathing, walking, feeding and picking up after the Puli.
Do you have an area for the Puli, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families living in apartments or townhouses may prefer a fish, a bird, or cat, rather than the Puli. Check your local library or Internet to find out more about Pulis to learn if another pet may be more appropriate for your family.
Rearing the Puli is time consuming and not cheap. Family members has to realize that they may have to forsake existing activities to properly care for the Puli. If this requirement is too daunting, parents should suggest postponing until the child is old enough to help care for the Puli.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Puli
Bergen advises the entire family meet the Puli in advance of agreeing to take it home. Raising the Puli is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
