Sooner or later, every parent is likely to hear: “Please, can we get that Wetterhoun puppy?”
Rather than ignore the question, parents should think about whether or not the family is prepared for a new dog, and even moreso a Wetterhoun, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s foremost provider of early childcare.
When considering “should the family get the Wetterhoun” Bergen recommends parents ascertain the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Wetterhoun to the household before acquiescing to a kid’s wish. “The Wetterhoun can teach your kids about responsibility and be a fantastic addition to the household-or it can become a hassle,” she said. Bergen suggests you ponder the following before deciding:
Questions to Ponder Before Answering Should You Get The Wetterhoun Puppy
Who is going to care for the Wetterhoun? Families must agree beforehand who is to be the one in charge of bathing, feeding, walking and picking up behind the Wetterhoun.
Do you have room for the Wetterhoun, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families living in townhouses or apartments may prefer a cat, a fish , or bird, rather than the Wetterhoun. Check the library or Internet to discover more about Wetterhouns to decide if another breed may be more appropriate for the family.
Owning the Wetterhoun is a big committment and can be expensive. The family has to know that they will be expected to give up current activities to spend time with the Wetterhoun. If the idea turns out to be too much of a committment, you might think about delaying until the child is old enough to help raise the Wetterhoun.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Wetterhoun
Bergen advises the entire household meet the Wetterhoun prior to committing to take it home. Owning the Wetterhoun is a big commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
