Eventually, every parent is likely to be asked: “Daddy, can we get that Serbian Hound puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents should consider if their family is prepared for a dog, and even moreso a Serbian Hound, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s leading provider of early childhood care and education.
When considering “should the family get the Serbian Hound” Bergen advises parents evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Serbian Hound to the household before agreeing to a child’s request. “The Serbian Hound can teach our children responsibility and become a welcome addition to your household-or it can become a chore,” she says. Bergen advises parents ponder the following before deciding:
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Answering Should You Get The Serbian Hound Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Serbian Hound? Families should agree in advance who is to be the one in charge of walking feeding, bathing and picking up after the Serbian Hound.
Do you have space for the Serbian Hound, or does your landlord allow dogs? Families living in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a fish, a bird, or cat, rather than the Serbian Hound. Check your library or online to learn more about Serbian Hounds to determine if another pet may be more appropriate for the household.
Being the owner of the Serbian Hound is a big committment and not cheap. The family should know that they may have to give up other activities to properly care for the Serbian Hound. If this thought seems too much of a committment, parents may suggest waiting until the child is responsible enough to help raise the Serbian Hound.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Serbian Hound
Bergen suggests the entire family meet the Serbian Hound prior to agreeing to take it home. Getting the Serbian Hound is a big commitment, so decide carefully before getting one.
