Eventually, most parents are going to hear: “Mom, can we get that Lapponian Herder puppy?”

Things to Think About Before Deciding Should You Get The Lapponian Herder Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Lapponian Herder? Households should come to an agreement beforehand who is to be the one in charge of bathing, walking, feeding and cleaning up after the Lapponian Herder.

Check with the library or online to find out more about Lapponian Herders to learn if another animal may be more suited for the family.
Raising the Lapponian Herder is time consuming and can be expensive. Your family must understand that they will be expected to forego other activities to properly care for the Lapponian Herder. If the prospect turns out to be too much of a committment, parents might suggest delaying until the child is responsible enough to help raise the Lapponian Herder.

Bergen recommends the entire family meet the Lapponian Herder before deciding to take it home. Rearing the Lapponian Herder is a huge commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
