Eventually, most parents are going to hear: “Daddy, can we get that Tornjak puppy?”
Instead of ignoring the question, parents should ponder if their clan is prepared for a new dog, especially a Tornjak, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s leading provider of early childcare.
When pondering “should we get the Tornjak” Bergen recommends the parents weigh the positives and negatives of bringing the Tornjak to the family prior to giving in to a kid’s wish. “The Tornjak can teach your children responsibility and be a fantastic addition to your household-or it can be a hassle,” she says. Bergen advises you think about the following before committing:
Questions to Think About Before Deciding Should You Get The Tornjak Puppy
Who is going to care for the Tornjak? Parents and children should come to an agreement in advance who is to be the one responsible for bathing, walking, feeding and cleaning up after the Tornjak.
Do you have an area for the Tornjak, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in townhouses or apartments may prefer a fish, a cat, or bird, rather than the Tornjak. Check with the library or online to find out more about Tornjaks to learn if another breed may be more suitable for the family.
Rearing the Tornjak is a big committment and can be expensive. Your family has to realize that they will have to give up current activities to properly care for the Tornjak. If the requirement seems too much of a committment, you may want to think about waiting until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Tornjak.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Tornjak
Bergen advises the entire household meet the Tornjak before agreeing to take it home. Rearing the Tornjak is a huge commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
