Sooner or later, you are likely to hear: “Please, can we get that Bullenbeisser puppy?”
Instead of avoiding the question, parents should consider if their clan is ready for a new puppy, and even moreso a Bullenbeisser, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s foremost provider of early childhood care and education.
When deciding “should we get the Bullenbeisser” Bergen advises the parents weigh the benefits and drawbacks of bringing the Bullenbeisser to the household prior to agreeing to a child’s wish. “The Bullenbeisser can teach your kids about responsibility and be a wonderful addition to the household-or it can be a regret,” she says. Bergen recommends you think about the following before committing:
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Answering Should You Get The Bullenbeisser Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Bullenbeisser? Households should agree in advance who is to be responsible for feeding, bathing, walking and picking up behind the Bullenbeisser.
Is there an area for the Bullenbeisser, or does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a bird, a fish, or cat, rather than the Bullenbeisser. Check the library or online to find out more about Bullenbeissers to determine if another breed may be more suited for your household.
Owning the Bullenbeisser is time consuming and may be expensive. The family must know that they will have to forego other activities to spend time with the Bullenbeisser. If this prospect turns out to be too daunting, parents should think about postponing until the child is responsible enough to help raise the Bullenbeisser.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Bullenbeisser
Bergen suggests the entire household meet the Bullenbeisser prior to agreeing to take it home. Owning the Bullenbeisser is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before adopting one.
