Eventually, most parents are going to hear: “Please, may I get that Brittany puppy?”
Instead of dodging the question, parents are advised to decide if the clan is prepared for a puppy, and even moreso a Brittany, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s foremost provider of early childhood care and education.
When asking yourself “should the family get the Brittany” Bergen suggests that parents ascertain the positives and negatives of adding the Brittany to the household prior to acquiescing to a kid’s request. “The Brittany can teach children about responsibility and become a welcome addition to your household-or it can become a regret,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen recommends families consider the following before deciding:
Things to Consider Before Deciding Should You Get The Brittany Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Brittany? Households should come to an agreement beforehand who is to be the one in charge of feeding, walking, bathing and picking up after the Brittany.
Is there room for the Brittany, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in townhouses or apartments may prefer a cat, a bird or fish, instead of the Brittany. Check with the library or online to learn more about Brittanys to decide if another animal may be more suitable for your family.
Being the owner of the Brittany is a big committment and not cheap. Your family should understand that they will have to forsake current activities to spend time with the Brittany. If that prospect seems too much of a committment, you may think about postponing until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Brittany.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Brittany
Bergen suggests the entire family meet the Brittany before deciding whether to take it home. Raising the Brittany is a huge commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
