Eventually, you are likely to hear: “Daddy, may I have that Welsh Sheepdog puppy?”
Instead of avoiding the question, parents are advised to decide if the clan is prepared for a new dog, especially a Welsh Sheepdog, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s leading provider of early childhood education.
When deciding “should the family get the Welsh Sheepdog” Bergen recommends that parents ascertain the plusses and minuses of bringing the Welsh Sheepdog to the household before acquiescing to a kid’s wish. “The Welsh Sheepdog can teach kids responsibility and become a welcome addition to a family-or it can be a mistake,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen recommends parents think about the following before deciding:
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Deciding Should You Get The Welsh Sheepdog Puppy
Who is going to care for the Welsh Sheepdog? Households must come to an agreement beforehand who is to be responsible for feeding, walking, bathing and picking up after the Welsh Sheepdog.
Do you have room for the Welsh Sheepdog, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in townhouses or apartments may prefer a bird, a fish, or cat, instead of the Welsh Sheepdog. Check with the library or online to discover more about Welsh Sheepdogs to learn if another dog may be more suitable for the household.
Owning the Welsh Sheepdog is time consuming and can be expensive. Your family must understand that they will have to give up other activities to properly care for the Welsh Sheepdog. If that idea is too much of a committment, you might suggest delaying until the child is committed enough to help care for the Welsh Sheepdog.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Welsh Sheepdog
Bergen recommends the whole family meet the Welsh Sheepdog before deciding whether to take it home. Getting the Welsh Sheepdog is a huge commitment, so decide carefully before adopting one.
