Eventually, every parent is going to hear: “Please, may I have that Artois Hound puppy?”

When deciding “should we get the Artois Hound” Bergen advises parents weigh the pros and cons of bringing the Artois Hound to the family before agreeing to a child’s request. “The Artois Hound can teach kids responsibility and become a wonderful addition to your household-or it can be a regret,” she has said. Bergen suggests families consider the following before deciding:
