Sooner or later, every parent is likely to hear: “Dad, may I get that French Brittany puppy?”
Instead of avoiding the question, parents are advised to think about whether their family is ready for a dog, and even moreso a French Brittany, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s leading provider of early childcare.
When deciding “should the family get the French Brittany” Bergen suggests the parents ascertain the benefits and drawbacks of adding the French Brittany to the family before acquiescing to a kid’s wish. “The French Brittany can teach our kids responsibility and become a fantastic addition to a family-or it can become a hassle,” she said. Bergen recommends you think about the following before deciding:
Questions to Ponder Before Answering Should You Get The French Brittany Puppy
Who will care for the French Brittany? Parents and kids must agree in advance who will be in charge of feeding, bathing, walking and cleaning up after the French Brittany.
Do you have space for the French Brittany, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in townhouses or apartments may prefer a bird, a cat, or fish, rather than the French Brittany. Check your library or Internet to learn more about French Brittanys to determine if another animal may be more appropriate for the family.
Owning the French Brittany is a big committment and not cheap. Your family must know that they will have to forsake existing activities to spend time with the French Brittany. If that prospect is too much of a committment, parents should think about waiting until the child is old enough to help care for the French Brittany.
Conclusion: Should You Get A French Brittany
Bergen advises the whole household meet the French Brittany before committing to take it home. Raising the French Brittany is a big commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
