Sooner or later, you are going to hear: “Dad, may I have that Ibizan Hound puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents are advised to think about whether their family is ready for a new puppy, and even moreso a Ibizan Hound, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s leading provider of early childhood education and care.
When deciding “should we get the Ibizan Hound” Bergen suggests that parents evaluate the positives and negatives of adding the Ibizan Hound to the family prior to giving in to a kid’s wish. “The Ibizan Hound can teach your kids responsibility and be a great addition to your family-or it can become a mistake,” she says. Bergen recommends families consider the following before deciding:
Things to Ponder Before Answering Should You Get The Ibizan Hound Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Ibizan Hound? Parents and children must agree beforehand who is to be in charge of feeding, walking, bathing and picking up after the Ibizan Hound.
Is there space for the Ibizan Hound, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in townhouses or apartments may be better suited to a cat, a bird or fish, rather than the Ibizan Hound. Check at the library or Internet to discover more about Ibizan Hounds to determine if another dog may be more suited for the household.
Raising the Ibizan Hound is time consuming and can be expensive. Family members should realize that they will be expected to forsake current activities to properly care for the Ibizan Hound. If this thought seems too much of a committment, you might want to think about delaying until the child is committed enough to help raise the Ibizan Hound.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Ibizan Hound
Bergen suggests the whole family meet the Ibizan Hound in advance of committing to take it home. Owning the Ibizan Hound is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before adopting one.
