Sooner or later, every parent is going to be asked: “Daddy, can we get that Sapsali puppy?”
Rather than ignore the question, parents should decide whether or not their clan is prepared for a new dog, and even moreso a Sapsali, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s leading provider of early childcare.
While considering “should you get the Sapsali” Bergen suggests parents ascertain the positives and negatives of adding the Sapsali to the family before giving in to a child’s wish. “The Sapsali can teach our kids responsibility and be a fantastic addition to your household-or it can be a regret,” she has said. Bergen recommends you think about the following before deciding:
Questions to Think About Before Answering Should You Get The Sapsali Puppy
Who is going to care for the Sapsali? Parents and kids should agree in advance who will be the one in charge of bathing, feeding, walking and picking up behind the Sapsali.
Do you have an area for the Sapsali, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families living in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a bird, a cat, or fish, instead of the Sapsali. Check with the library or online to learn more about Sapsalis to decide if another animal may be more suitable for your family.
Raising the Sapsali is a big committment and may be expensive. The family must realize that they will have to forego existing activities to properly care for the Sapsali. If this thought seems too much of a committment, parents should consider delaying until the child is committed enough to help care for the Sapsali.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Sapsali
Bergen suggests the whole household meet the Sapsali in advance of agreeing to take it home. Rearing the Sapsali is a big commitment, so decide carefully before getting one.
