Eventually, most parents are going to be asked: “Daddy, can we get that Sarplaninac puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents are advised to think about if their clan is prepared for a new dog, and even moreso a Sarplaninac, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s foremost provider of early childcare.
When pondering “should the family get the Sarplaninac” Bergen advises parents weigh the positives and negatives of bringing the Sarplaninac to the family prior to acquiescing to a kid’s request. “The Sarplaninac can teach your kids responsibility and be a fantastic addition to the household-or it can become a regret,” she has said. Bergen recommends you ponder the following before committing:
Questions to Think About Before Deciding Should You Get The Sarplaninac Puppy
Who will care for the Sarplaninac? Households must come to an agreement beforehand who will be responsible for feeding, bathing, walking and picking up after the Sarplaninac.
Is there room for the Sarplaninac, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in apartments or townhouses may prefer a fish, a bird, or cat, rather than the Sarplaninac. Check at the library or Internet to learn more about Sarplaninacs to learn if another dog may be more suitable for the family.
Rearing the Sarplaninac is a big committment and not cheap. Family members should realize that they will have to give up other activities to spend time with the Sarplaninac. If the idea seems too daunting, you may suggest delaying until the child is committed enough to help raise the Sarplaninac.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Sarplaninac
Bergen recommends the whole household meet the Sarplaninac in advance of deciding whether to take it home. Rearing the Sarplaninac is a huge commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
