Sooner or later, every parent is going to hear: “Daddy, may I have that Greenland Dog puppy?”
Rather than ignore the question, parents are advised to ponder whether or not the family is ready for a new puppy, and even moreso a Greenland Dog, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s leading provider of early childcare.
When asking yourself “should the family get the Greenland Dog” Bergen advises parents ascertain the positives and negatives of adding the Greenland Dog to the household prior to agreeing to a child’s wish. “The Greenland Dog can teach your kids responsibility and become a wonderful addition to a family-or it can become a mistake,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen recommends families ponder the following before committing:
Questions to Ask Before Deciding Should You Get The Greenland Dog Puppy
Who is going to care for the Greenland Dog? Families should agree in advance who is to be the one in charge of feeding, bathing, walking and cleaning up behind the Greenland Dog.
Do you have room for the Greenland Dog, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a fish, a bird, or cat, rather than the Greenland Dog. Check your local library or Internet to find out more about Greenland Dogs to determine if another breed may be more appropriate for the household.
Raising the Greenland Dog is a big committment and not cheap. Family members should realize that they are expected to give up other activities to spend time with the Greenland Dog. If this thought seems too much of a committment, parents may consider delaying until the child is committed enough to help raise the Greenland Dog.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Greenland Dog
Bergen advises the whole household meet the Greenland Dog before agreeing to take it home. Rearing the Greenland Dog is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before adopting a furry new family member.
