Eventually, you are likely to hear: “Mommy, can we get that Standard Schnauzer puppy?”
Rather than dodge the question, parents are advised to think about whether or not their clan is ready for a dog, especially a Standard Schnauzer, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s leading provider of early childhood care and education.
While considering “should the family get the Standard Schnauzer” Bergen recommends parents weigh the positives and negatives of adding the Standard Schnauzer to the household before agreeing to a kid’s wishes. “The Standard Schnauzer can teach your children responsibility and become a fantastic addition to a household-or it can be a chore,” she said.

Questions to Ask Before Answering Should You Get The Standard Schnauzer Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Standard Schnauzer? Parents and kids should agree beforehand who will be the one in charge of walking feeding, bathing and cleaning up after the Standard Schnauzer.
Is there room for the Standard Schnauzer, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in apartments or townhouses may prefer a bird, a fish, or cat, instead of the Standard Schnauzer. Check the library or Internet to find out more about Standard Schnauzers to decide if another pet may be more suitable for your family.
Raising the Standard Schnauzer is time consuming and not cheap. The family should understand that they may have to give up existing activities to spend time with the Standard Schnauzer. If the requirement turns out to be too much of a committment, parents may want to consider waiting until the child is old enough to help raise the Standard Schnauzer.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Standard Schnauzer
Bergen recommends the entire family meet the Standard Schnauzer before deciding to take it home. Owning the Standard Schnauzer is a big commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
