Sooner or later, every parent is going to hear: “Mom, can we get that Swedish Vallhund puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents should ponder whether or not their clan is ready for a dog, and even moreso a Swedish Vallhund, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s leading provider of early childhood care and education.
While thinking about “should you get the Swedish Vallhund” Bergen suggests parents evaluate the plusses and minuses of adding the Swedish Vallhund to the household prior to giving in to a kid’s wish. “The Swedish Vallhund can teach your children about responsibility and become a welcome addition to your family-or it can be a chore,” she says. Bergen suggests families think about the following before deciding:
Things to Ask Before Answering Should You Get The Swedish Vallhund Puppy
Who is going to care for the Swedish Vallhund? Families should agree beforehand who is to be responsible for bathing, feeding, walking and picking up behind the Swedish Vallhund.
Do you have space for the Swedish Vallhund, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a bird, a fish, or cat, rather than the Swedish Vallhund. Check with the library or online to find out more about Swedish Vallhunds to learn if another breed may be more suitable for the family.
Being the owner of the Swedish Vallhund is time consuming and may be expensive. Family members must realize that they may have to forsake other activities to spend time with the Swedish Vallhund. If this idea turns out to be too daunting, you may suggest delaying until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Swedish Vallhund.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Swedish Vallhund
Bergen advises the whole household meet the Swedish Vallhund in advance of agreeing to take it home. Rearing the Swedish Vallhund is a big commitment, so decide carefully before getting one.
