Eventually, every parent is going to hear: “Mommy, can we get that Mudi puppy?”
Rather than ignore the question, parents should ponder whether the clan is ready for a new dog, and even moreso a Mudi, 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.
While thinking about “should you get the Mudi” Bergen suggests the parents evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Mudi to the household prior to acquiescing to a child’s wishes. “The Mudi can teach children about responsibility and be a wonderful addition to a household-or it can be a hassle,” she says. Bergen recommends families think about the following before deciding:
Things to Think About Before Deciding Should You Get The Mudi Puppy
Who will care for the Mudi? Families must come to an agreement in advance who is to be the one in charge of bathing, feeding, walking and cleaning up after the Mudi.
Do you have an area for the Mudi, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a cat, a bird or fish, rather than the Mudi. Check your local library or Internet to learn more about Mudis to learn if another dog may be more suited for the family.
Rearing the Mudi is a big committment and not cheap. Your family should know that they are expected to give up existing activities to properly care for the Mudi. If that requirement turns out to be too much of a committment, you might consider waiting until the child is committed enough to help raise the Mudi.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Mudi
Bergen recommends the whole family meet the Mudi in advance of deciding whether to take it home. Raising the Mudi is a huge commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
