Sooner or later, most parents are likely to be asked: “Please, can we get that Malinois puppy?”
Instead of avoiding the question, parents are advised to decide if the family is ready for a puppy, especially a Malinois, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s foremost provider of early childhood care and education.
When asking yourself “should we get the Malinois” Bergen advises parents evaluate the positives and negatives of adding the Malinois to the family before agreeing to a child’s wishes. “The Malinois can teach children responsibility and become a wonderful addition to a family-or it can become a regret,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen suggests parents consider the following before deciding:
Things to Ponder Before Deciding Should You Get The Malinois Puppy
Who will care for the Malinois? Families must agree beforehand who will be the one responsible for feeding, bathing, walking and picking up behind the Malinois.
Do you have space for the Malinois, or does your landlord allow dogs? Families living in apartments or townhouses may prefer a cat, a fish , or bird, rather than the Malinois. Check the library or online to discover more about Malinoiss to learn if another animal may be more suitable for the household.
Being the owner of the Malinois is a big committment and may be expensive. Your family should understand that they will have to forego other activities to spend time with the Malinois. If the thought turns out to be too daunting, parents might suggest delaying until the child is old enough to help raise the Malinois.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Malinois
Bergen recommends the whole family meet the Malinois prior to deciding to take it home. Rearing the Malinois is a huge commitment, so think carefully before adopting one.
