Sooner or later, most parents are likely to be asked: “Daddy, can I have that Giant Schnauzer puppy?”
Rather than dodge the question, parents are advised to consider whether the family is ready for a dog, especially a Giant Schnauzer, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s foremost provider of early childhood care and education.
While deciding “should you get the Giant Schnauzer” Bergen advises parents ascertain the plusses and minuses of bringing the Giant Schnauzer to the household before agreeing to a kid’s wish. “The Giant Schnauzer can teach children about responsibility and become a great addition to a family-or it can become a hassle,” she says.

Things to Consider Before Answering Should You Get The Giant Schnauzer Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Giant Schnauzer? Households should agree in advance who is to be in charge of walking feeding, bathing and cleaning up behind the Giant Schnauzer.
Is there an area for the Giant Schnauzer, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a fish, a bird, or cat, instead of the Giant Schnauzer. Check with the library or Internet to find out more about Giant Schnauzers to decide if another animal may be more suited for the household.
Being the owner of the Giant Schnauzer is time consuming and may be expensive. Family members must understand that they are expected to give up current activities to properly care for the Giant Schnauzer. If that requirement turns out to be too daunting, you should suggest delaying until the child is committed enough to help care for the Giant Schnauzer.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Giant Schnauzer
Bergen advises the whole family meet the Giant Schnauzer prior to deciding to take it home. Rearing the Giant Schnauzer is a long-term commitment, so decide carefully before getting one.
