Eventually, most parents are likely to hear: “Daddy, can I have that Havanese puppy?”
Rather than ignore the question, parents are advised to ponder if their family is prepared for a new puppy, especially a Havanese, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s foremost provider of early childhood education and care.
While thinking about “should the family get the Havanese” Bergen recommends the parents evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Havanese to the family prior to acquiescing to a kid’s wishes. “The Havanese can teach your kids responsibility and become a wonderful addition to the family-or it can be a mistake,” she says. Bergen recommends parents ponder the following before committing:
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Answering Should You Get The Havanese Puppy
Who is going to care for the Havanese? Households should agree beforehand who is to be the one responsible for walking feeding, bathing and picking up after the Havanese.
Is there room for the Havanese, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in townhouses or apartments may prefer a bird, a fish, or cat, rather than the Havanese. Check at the library or online to find out more about Havaneses to determine if another breed may be more appropriate for the household.
Raising the Havanese is time consuming and can be expensive. The family should realize that they may have to forego existing activities to properly care for the Havanese. If that idea turns out to be too much of a committment, parents might consider waiting until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Havanese.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Havanese
Bergen recommends the entire family meet the Havanese in advance of deciding whether to take it home. Rearing the Havanese is a big commitment, so think carefully before adopting a furry new family member.
