Sooner or later, you are going to hear: “Mommy, can we get that Finnish Hound puppy?”
Instead of dodging the question, parents are advised to think about whether their family is prepared for a new dog, and even moreso a Finnish Hound, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this nation’s foremost provider of early childhood education and care.
While thinking about “should the family get the Finnish Hound” Bergen suggests parents ascertain the plusses and minuses of bringing the Finnish Hound to the family prior to acquiescing to a kid’s wishes. “The Finnish Hound can teach our children responsibility and become a wonderful addition to a household-or it can become a burden,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen suggests families consider the following before deciding:
Things to Think About Before Deciding Should You Get The Finnish Hound Puppy
Who is going to care for the Finnish Hound? Parents and children should come to an agreement in advance who is to be the one in charge of feeding, bathing, walking and cleaning up behind the Finnish Hound.
Is there space for the Finnish Hound, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in townhouses or apartments may be better suited to a bird, a cat, or fish, rather than the Finnish Hound. Check your local library or online to find out more about Finnish Hounds to learn if another animal may be more suited for your household.
Raising the Finnish Hound is a big committment and can be expensive. Your family has to know that they will have to give up other activities to spend time with the Finnish Hound. If that thought is too much of a committment, parents should suggest postponing until the child is old enough to help care for the Finnish Hound.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Finnish Hound
Bergen recommends the entire household meet the Finnish Hound in advance of committing to take it home. Getting the Finnish Hound is a big commitment, so decide carefully before getting one.
