Sooner or later, every parent is likely to hear: “Mom, can we get that Beagle-Harrier puppy?”
Instead of dodging the question, parents should think about whether or not their family is prepared for a new puppy, and even moreso a Beagle-Harrier, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s foremost provider of early childcare.
While thinking about “should we get the Beagle-Harrier” Bergen recommends parents ascertain the positives and negatives of adding the Beagle-Harrier to the family before giving in to a kid’s request. “The Beagle-Harrier can teach your children responsibility and be a pleasant addition to your household-or it can become a regret,” she has said. Bergen suggests parents think about the following before committing:
Questions to Ask Before Deciding Should You Get The Beagle-Harrier Puppy
Who will care for the Beagle-Harrier? Parents and kids must come to an agreement beforehand who is to be in charge of bathing, walking, feeding and cleaning up after the Beagle-Harrier.
Do you have space for the Beagle-Harrier, or does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a bird, a fish, or cat, rather than the Beagle-Harrier. Check your library or Internet to learn more about Beagle-Harriers to determine if another breed may be more appropriate for your family.
Rearing the Beagle-Harrier is a big committment and can be expensive. Your family must understand that they may have to give up existing activities to properly care for the Beagle-Harrier. If the thought turns out to be too much of a committment, you should consider postponing until the child is responsible enough to help raise the Beagle-Harrier.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Beagle-Harrier
Bergen suggests the entire family meet the Beagle-Harrier before deciding to take it home. Getting the Beagle-Harrier is a huge commitment, so decide carefully before adopting a furry new family member.
