Eventually, you are likely to be asked: “Daddy, can I have that German Pinscher puppy?”
Instead of dodging the question, parents are advised to think about if the clan is prepared for a new dog, and even moreso a German Pinscher, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this nation’s foremost provider of early childhood education.
When deciding “should the family get the German Pinscher” Bergen advises the parents weigh the positives and negatives of adding the German Pinscher to the family prior to acquiescing to a child’s wishes. “The German Pinscher can teach children responsibility and become a fantastic addition to your household-or it can become a mistake,” she has said. Bergen advises you ponder the following before deciding:
Questions to Ponder Before Answering Should You Get The German Pinscher Puppy
Who will care for the German Pinscher? Households should come to an agreement in advance who will be responsible for bathing, walking, feeding and picking up behind the German Pinscher.

If the prospect turns out to be too daunting, parents might think about delaying until the child is committed enough to help care for the German Pinscher.
