Eventually, you are going to hear: “Dad, can we get that Lowchen puppy?”
Instead of avoiding the question, parents should decide whether the family is ready for a new dog, especially a Lowchen, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s leading provider of early childhood education and care.
While pondering “should you get the Lowchen” Bergen suggests parents evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of bringing the Lowchen to the household prior to acquiescing to a kid’s request. “The Lowchen can teach kids responsibility and be a pleasant addition to a family-or it can become a mistake,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen suggests families consider the following before committing:
Things to Ponder Before Deciding Should You Get The Lowchen Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Lowchen? Families must agree in advance who is to be responsible for feeding, bathing, walking and cleaning up after the Lowchen.
Is there room for the Lowchen, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in townhouses or apartments may prefer a fish, a bird, or cat, rather than the Lowchen. Check with the library or Internet to learn more about Lowchens to decide if another breed may be more suitable for the household.
Raising the Lowchen is a big committment and can be expensive. Family members should understand that they will be required to give up current activities to properly care for the Lowchen. If that idea seems too much of a committment, parents may suggest waiting until the child is responsible enough to help raise the Lowchen.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Lowchen
Bergen advises the entire family meet the Lowchen before deciding to take it home. Getting the Lowchen is a big commitment, so think carefully before adopting one.
