Eventually, most parents are going to hear: “Daddy, can we get that Dutch Smoushond puppy?”

When pondering “should the family get the Dutch Smoushond” Bergen suggests that parents weigh the pros and cons of adding the Dutch Smoushond to the household before agreeing to a kid’s request. “The Dutch Smoushond can teach our children about responsibility and be a fantastic addition to the family-or it can be a hassle,” she has said. Bergen recommends parents ponder the following before committing:
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Deciding Should You Get The Dutch Smoushond Puppy
Who is going to care for the Dutch Smoushond? Families must come to an agreement beforehand who is to be the one in charge of bathing, feeding, walking and picking up behind the Dutch Smoushond.
Is there room for the Dutch Smoushond, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in townhouses or apartments may prefer a cat, a fish , or bird, rather than the Dutch Smoushond. Check with the library or Internet to find out more about Dutch Smoushonds to learn if another dog may be more appropriate for the household.
Rearing the Dutch Smoushond is time consuming and can be expensive. Your family should realize that they will be required to forego current activities to spend time with the Dutch Smoushond. If that idea is too daunting, you should think about delaying until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Dutch Smoushond.

Bergen advises the whole family meet the Dutch Smoushond in advance of deciding whether to take it home. Raising the Dutch Smoushond is a huge commitment, so decide carefully before adopting a furry new family member.
