Sooner or later, you are likely to hear: “Please, can we get that Norwegian Buhund puppy?”
Rather than ignore the question, parents are advised to ponder whether the family is prepared for a new dog, especially a Norwegian Buhund, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s foremost provider of early childhood education and care.
When thinking about “should you get the Norwegian Buhund” Bergen recommends the parents evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Norwegian Buhund to the household prior to acquiescing to a kid’s wishes. “The Norwegian Buhund can teach your kids responsibility and be a great addition to your family-or it can become a regret,” she said. Bergen suggests parents ponder the following before deciding:
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Deciding Should You Get The Norwegian Buhund Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Norwegian Buhund? Families should agree in advance who is to be responsible for feeding, walking, bathing and cleaning up after the Norwegian Buhund.
Is there room for the Norwegian Buhund, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in apartments or townhouses may prefer a bird, a cat, or fish, instead of the Norwegian Buhund. Check with the library or online to discover more about Norwegian Buhunds to determine if another breed may be more appropriate for the household.
Rearing the Norwegian Buhund is a big committment and not cheap. Your family should know that they may have to forego current activities to properly care for the Norwegian Buhund. If the thought turns out to be too much of a committment, parents should suggest delaying until the child is old enough to help raise the Norwegian Buhund.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Norwegian Buhund
Bergen recommends the whole household meet the Norwegian Buhund before deciding to take it home. Raising the Norwegian Buhund is a big commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
