Sooner or later, every parent is going to hear: “Please, can we get that Lithuanian Hound puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents are advised to consider if the family is ready for a new dog, especially a Lithuanian Hound, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this nation’s leading provider of early childcare.
When asking yourself “should the family get the Lithuanian Hound” Bergen recommends parents weigh the positives and negatives of adding the Lithuanian Hound to the household before giving in to a kid’s wish. “The Lithuanian Hound can teach our kids about responsibility and become a great addition to your family-or it can be a hassle,” she has said. Bergen suggests families think about the following before deciding:
Things to Ask Before Deciding Should You Get The Lithuanian Hound Puppy
Who is going to care for the Lithuanian Hound? Households must agree beforehand who is to be responsible for feeding, bathing, walking and cleaning up after the Lithuanian Hound.
Do you have space for the Lithuanian Hound, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in townhouses or apartments may be better suited to a cat, a fish , or bird, instead of the Lithuanian Hound. Check the library or Internet to discover more about Lithuanian Hounds to decide if another animal may be more suited for the family.
Owning the Lithuanian Hound is a big committment and can be expensive. Family members should understand that they are expected to forego current activities to properly care for the Lithuanian Hound. If that thought seems too daunting, you may consider delaying until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Lithuanian Hound.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Lithuanian Hound
Bergen recommends the whole family meet the Lithuanian Hound prior to agreeing to take it home. Rearing the Lithuanian Hound is a huge commitment, so think carefully before adopting one.
