Sooner or later, you are going to be asked: “Dad, can I get that Jamthund puppy?”

Questions to Think About Before Answering Should You Get The Jamthund Puppy
Who will care for the Jamthund? Households should agree beforehand who is to be responsible for feeding, walking, bathing and picking up behind the Jamthund.

Check at the library or Internet to find out more about Jamthunds to learn if another dog may be more suited for the household.

If this thought turns out to be too daunting, parents may think about waiting until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Jamthund.
