Eventually, every parent is likely to hear: “Mom, may I get that Tibetan Spaniel puppy?”
Instead of dodging the question, parents are advised to decide whether or not the clan is ready for a dog, especially a Tibetan Spaniel, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this nation’s foremost provider of early childcare.
When thinking about “should you get the Tibetan Spaniel” Bergen recommends parents weigh the positives and negatives of bringing the Tibetan Spaniel to the household prior to acquiescing to a child’s wish. “The Tibetan Spaniel can teach our children responsibility and be a pleasant addition to your family-or it can become a regret,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen suggests parents ponder the following before deciding:
Things to Ask Before Deciding Should You Get The Tibetan Spaniel Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Tibetan Spaniel? Families should come to an agreement beforehand who will be responsible for feeding, bathing, walking and cleaning up after the Tibetan Spaniel.
Is there an area for the Tibetan Spaniel, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in townhouses or apartments may be better suited to a bird, a fish, or cat, rather than the Tibetan Spaniel. Check your local library or online to learn more about Tibetan Spaniels to determine if another dog may be more appropriate for the household.
Rearing the Tibetan Spaniel is a big committment and can be expensive. Family members has to know that they are required to forego existing activities to properly care for the Tibetan Spaniel. If that prospect seems too daunting, you might suggest delaying until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Tibetan Spaniel.
