Eventually, every parent is likely to be asked: “Daddy, can I get that French Bulldog puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents are advised to think about whether the family is ready for a new puppy, and even moreso a French Bulldog, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s foremost provider of early childhood care and education.
When asking yourself “should you get the French Bulldog” Bergen recommends parents weigh the positives and negatives of bringing the French Bulldog to the household prior to giving in to a kid’s wishes. “The French Bulldog can teach children about responsibility and become a great addition to your family-or it can become a hassle,” she has said. Bergen advises parents think about the following before deciding:
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Deciding Should You Get The French Bulldog Puppy
Who will care for the French Bulldog? Households should come to an agreement in advance who will be the one in charge of feeding, bathing, walking and cleaning up after the French Bulldog.
Do you have room for the French Bulldog, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families living in townhouses or apartments may be better suited to a fish, a bird, or cat, instead of the French Bulldog. Check at the library or online to discover more about French Bulldogs to decide if another breed may be more suitable for your household.
Being the owner of the French Bulldog is time consuming and may be expensive. The family has to know that they are expected to forego current activities to spend time with the French Bulldog. If this prospect seems too much of a committment, you may think about delaying until the child is responsible enough to help raise the French Bulldog.
Conclusion: Should You Get A French Bulldog
Bergen advises the entire household meet the French Bulldog before deciding to take it home. Getting the French Bulldog is a big commitment, so think carefully before adopting one.
