Eventually, most parents are going to be asked: “Dad, can we get that Kishu puppy?”
Rather than dodge the question, parents are advised to decide whether the clan is prepared for a new puppy, especially a Kishu, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s foremost provider of early childhood education and care.
When pondering “should you get the Kishu” Bergen recommends the parents weigh the plusses and minuses of adding the Kishu to the household before agreeing to a child’s wish. “The Kishu can teach children responsibility and be a great addition to your family-or it can be a mistake,” she has said. Bergen advises you consider the following before deciding:
Things to Ask Yourself Before Answering Should You Get The Kishu Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Kishu? Parents and children must come to an agreement in advance who will be the one responsible for bathing, feeding, walking and picking up behind the Kishu.
Do you have space for the Kishu, or does your landlord allow dogs? Families living in apartments or townhouses may prefer a bird, a fish, or cat, instead of the Kishu. Check your local library or Internet to learn more about Kishus to learn if another breed may be more appropriate for your family.
Raising the Kishu is time consuming and not cheap. Family members should realize that they may have to forsake current activities to properly care for the Kishu. If the requirement turns out to be too much of a committment, you should suggest postponing until the child is old enough to help raise the Kishu.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Kishu
Bergen advises the entire family meet the Kishu prior to committing to take it home. Raising the Kishu is a huge commitment, so decide carefully before getting one.
