Sooner or later, every parent is going to be asked: “Mommy, can we get that Scotch Collie puppy?”
Instead of avoiding the question, parents are advised to decide whether or not their clan is prepared for a puppy, especially a Scotch Collie, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this nation’s leading provider of early childhood education.
When thinking about “should the family get the Scotch Collie” Bergen recommends parents weigh the plusses and minuses of adding the Scotch Collie to the family prior to agreeing to a kid’s request. “The Scotch Collie can teach your children responsibility and be a wonderful addition to your household-or it can become a mistake,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen suggests families think about the following before deciding:
Things to Consider Before Deciding Should You Get The Scotch Collie Puppy
Who is going to care for the Scotch Collie? Households should agree in advance who will be the one in charge of bathing, feeding, walking and picking up after the Scotch Collie.
Is there space for the Scotch Collie, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in townhouses or apartments may prefer a bird, a fish, or cat, instead of the Scotch Collie. Check your local library or Internet to discover more about Scotch Collies to determine if another breed may be more suited for the family.
Rearing the Scotch Collie is time consuming and can be expensive. Your family has to realize that they will be required to give up current activities to properly care for the Scotch Collie. If the thought is too daunting, parents may suggest waiting until the child is committed enough to help care for the Scotch Collie.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Scotch Collie
Bergen recommends the entire family meet the Scotch Collie prior to committing to take it home. Getting the Scotch Collie is a big commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
