Eventually, every parent is going to hear: “Mom, can we get that Elo puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents are advised to decide if their family is prepared for a new dog, and even moreso a Elo, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s leading provider of early childcare.
While thinking about “should you get the Elo” Bergen suggests parents weigh the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Elo to the household prior to acquiescing to a kid’s request. “The Elo can teach your children responsibility and become a great addition to a family-or it can become a mistake,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen advises families consider the following before deciding:
Questions to Think About Before Answering Should You Get The Elo Puppy
Who will care for the Elo? Parents and children should agree in advance who will be the one responsible for bathing, feeding, walking and picking up behind the Elo.
Is there space for the Elo, or does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in apartments or townhouses may prefer a fish, a bird, or cat, instead of the Elo. Check with the library or Internet to learn more about Elos to learn if another breed may be more appropriate for your family.
Rearing the Elo is time consuming and can be expensive. The family must realize that they will be expected to forego other activities to spend time with the Elo. If the thought is too daunting, parents may want to think about waiting until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Elo.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Elo
Bergen suggests the entire household meet the Elo in advance of deciding whether to take it home. Raising the Elo is a big commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
