Sooner or later, you are likely to hear: “Daddy, can we get that Italian Greyhound puppy?”
Instead of ignoring the question, parents are advised to ponder if their clan is prepared for a puppy, especially a Italian Greyhound, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s leading provider of early childhood education and care.
When deciding “should we get the Italian Greyhound” Bergen advises parents evaluate the plusses and minuses of bringing the Italian Greyhound to the family before agreeing to a kid’s wishes. “The Italian Greyhound can teach our kids responsibility and be a pleasant addition to a family-or it can be a mistake,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen advises you ponder the following before committing:
Questions to Think About Before Deciding Should You Get The Italian Greyhound Puppy
Who is going to care for the Italian Greyhound? Parents and children must come to an agreement in advance who is to be responsible for walking feeding, bathing and picking up behind the Italian Greyhound.
Do you have an area for the Italian Greyhound, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in townhouses or apartments may be better suited to a fish, a bird, or cat, instead of the Italian Greyhound. Check the library or online to find out more about Italian Greyhounds to determine if another animal may be more suited for your household.
Owning the Italian Greyhound is time consuming and not cheap. The family should understand that they are expected to forego other activities to spend time with the Italian Greyhound. If that thought is too daunting, you may consider waiting until the child is committed enough to help care for the Italian Greyhound.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Italian Greyhound
Bergen suggests the entire family meet the Italian Greyhound prior to deciding to take it home. Getting the Italian Greyhound is a huge commitment, so decide carefully before getting one.
