Eventually, every parent is going to be asked: “Please, can we get that Broholmer puppy?”
Instead of dodging the question, parents should ponder whether or not the family is prepared for a dog, especially a Broholmer, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s leading provider of early childhood education.
While deciding “should you get the Broholmer” Bergen suggests the parents weigh the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Broholmer to the family before agreeing to a child’s request. “The Broholmer can teach our kids about responsibility and become a fantastic addition to a family-or it can be a mistake,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen suggests parents think about the following before committing:
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Answering Should You Get The Broholmer Puppy
Who is going to care for the Broholmer? Families should agree beforehand who is to be responsible for feeding, walking, bathing and cleaning up after the Broholmer.
Is there an area for the Broholmer, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a cat, a fish , or bird, rather than the Broholmer. Check the library or online to discover more about Broholmers to learn if another dog may be more suitable for your household.
Being the owner of the Broholmer is a big committment and not cheap. Your family has to know that they will be expected to give up existing activities to properly care for the Broholmer. If that prospect seems too daunting, parents may consider postponing until the child is committed enough to help care for the Broholmer.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Broholmer
Bergen recommends the whole household meet the Broholmer prior to agreeing to take it home. Getting the Broholmer is a big commitment, so decide carefully before getting one.
