Sooner or later, you are going to be asked: “Please, can we get that Estonian Hound puppy?”
Instead of avoiding the question, parents are advised to ponder whether or not the family is ready for a new dog, especially a Estonian Hound, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s foremost provider of early childhood education.
While asking yourself “should you get the Estonian Hound” Bergen recommends parents weigh the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Estonian Hound to the family prior to agreeing to a kid’s wish. “The Estonian Hound can teach our children responsibility and become a wonderful addition to the family-or it can be a mistake,” she said. Bergen advises parents think about the following before committing:
Things to Think About Before Deciding Should You Get The Estonian Hound Puppy
Who will care for the Estonian Hound? Households must agree beforehand who is to be the one in charge of bathing, feeding, walking and picking up after the Estonian Hound.
Do you have space for the Estonian Hound, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in townhouses or apartments may prefer a cat, a bird or fish, rather than the Estonian Hound. Check with the library or online to learn more about Estonian Hounds to determine if another dog may be more appropriate for the family.
Rearing the Estonian Hound is time consuming and not cheap. The family must know that they will be required to forsake other activities to spend time with the Estonian Hound. If this requirement turns out to be too much of a committment, parents might consider waiting until the child is responsible enough to help raise the Estonian Hound.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Estonian Hound
Bergen suggests the whole household meet the Estonian Hound before committing to take it home. Rearing the Estonian Hound is a long-term commitment, so decide carefully before adopting one.
