Sooner or later, most parents are going to be asked: “Mommy, may I get that Kanni puppy?”
Instead of avoiding the question, parents are advised to think about whether or not their family is prepared for a new dog, and even moreso a Kanni, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this nation’s leading provider of early childhood education and care.
While asking yourself “should the family get the Kanni” Bergen recommends parents evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Kanni to the household before acquiescing to a child’s request. “The Kanni can teach our kids responsibility and be a wonderful addition to a household-or it can be a chore,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen advises you think about the following before deciding:
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Answering Should You Get The Kanni Puppy
Who is going to care for the Kanni? Parents and kids must come to an agreement in advance who will be in charge of bathing, walking, feeding and cleaning up after the Kanni.
Do you have space for the Kanni, or does your landlord allow dogs? Families living in townhouses or apartments may prefer a cat, a fish , or bird, instead of the Kanni. Check your local library or online to discover more about Kannis to learn if another breed may be more suitable for the household.
Rearing the Kanni is time consuming and can be expensive. Your family must realize that they may have to forego other activities to spend time with the Kanni. If the requirement seems too much of a committment, you may suggest postponing until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Kanni.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Kanni
Bergen recommends the whole household meet the Kanni before agreeing to take it home. Raising the Kanni is a huge commitment, so decide carefully before getting one.
