Sooner or later, every parent is going to be asked: “Please, may I have that Coton De Tulear puppy?”
Instead of ignoring the question, parents should think about whether the family is prepared for a puppy, and even moreso a Coton De Tulear, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s foremost provider of early childhood education and care.
When considering “should the family get the Coton De Tulear” Bergen suggests that parents weigh the plusses and minuses of bringing the Coton De Tulear to the household before giving in to a child’s request. “The Coton De Tulear can teach children responsibility and become a fantastic addition to the family-or it can be a burden,” she said. Bergen recommends families ponder the following before committing:
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Answering Should You Get The Coton De Tulear Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Coton De Tulear? Families should agree in advance who will be the one responsible for feeding, bathing, walking and picking up after the Coton De Tulear.
Is there room for the Coton De Tulear, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in apartments or townhouses may prefer a cat, a fish , or bird, instead of the Coton De Tulear. Check at the library or Internet to discover more about Coton De Tulears to determine if another animal may be more appropriate for the family.
Being the owner of the Coton De Tulear is time consuming and may be expensive. The family must know that they will be required to forego other activities to spend time with the Coton De Tulear. If this thought turns out to be too daunting, parents should suggest postponing until the child is committed enough to help raise the Coton De Tulear.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Coton De Tulear
Bergen recommends the whole family meet the Coton De Tulear before agreeing to take it home. Getting the Coton De Tulear is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
