Sooner or later, every parent is likely to hear: “Please, may I have that Dogo Argentino puppy?”
Rather than dodge the question, parents are advised to decide whether or not the clan is prepared for a puppy, especially a Dogo Argentino, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s foremost provider of early childhood education and care.
While asking yourself “should the family get the Dogo Argentino” Bergen suggests parents weigh the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Dogo Argentino to the family before agreeing to a child’s wish. “The Dogo Argentino can teach our children about responsibility and be a fantastic addition to the family-or it can be a burden,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen suggests parents ponder the following before deciding:
Things to Ponder Before Deciding Should You Get The Dogo Argentino Puppy
Who will care for the Dogo Argentino? Households should come to an agreement in advance who is to be responsible for bathing, feeding, walking and picking up after the Dogo Argentino.
Do you have an area for the Dogo Argentino, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families living in townhouses or apartments may be better suited to a bird, a cat, or fish, rather than the Dogo Argentino. Check the library or online to find out more about Dogo Argentinos to learn if another dog may be more appropriate for the family.
Owning the Dogo Argentino is a big committment and can be expensive. Family members should understand that they are required to give up current activities to spend time with the Dogo Argentino. If this idea seems too much of a committment, you may think about delaying until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Dogo Argentino.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Dogo Argentino
Bergen advises the whole family meet the Dogo Argentino prior to deciding whether to take it home. Getting the Dogo Argentino is a long-term commitment, so decide carefully before getting one.
