Sooner or later, you are going to be asked: “Daddy, can I have that Drever puppy?”
Rather than ignore the question, parents are advised to ponder whether their family is ready for a dog, especially a Drever, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this nation’s leading provider of early childhood education and care.
When deciding “should you get the Drever” Bergen recommends that parents ascertain the benefits and drawbacks of bringing the Drever to the household prior to giving in to a kid’s wish. “The Drever can teach children responsibility and be a great addition to your family-or it can be a regret,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen recommends families think about the following before deciding:
Things to Consider Before Answering Should You Get The Drever Puppy
Who will care for the Drever? Households should agree in advance who will be in charge of feeding, bathing, walking and picking up behind the Drever.
Do you have an area for the Drever, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in apartments or townhouses may prefer a cat, a fish , or bird, instead of the Drever. Check your local library or Internet to find out more about Drevers to decide if another breed may be more suited for your family.
Owning the Drever is time consuming and not cheap. The family must understand that they will have to forego existing activities to properly care for the Drever. If that requirement seems too much of a committment, parents may think about waiting until the child is old enough to help raise the Drever.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Drever
Bergen suggests the whole family meet the Drever before committing to take it home. Raising the Drever is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before adopting one.
