Sooner or later, most parents are likely to be asked: “Dad, can we get that Phalene puppy?”
Rather than dodge the question, parents are advised to ponder whether or not the clan is ready for a new puppy, especially a Phalene, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s foremost provider of early childcare.
When asking yourself “should we get the Phalene” Bergen suggests the parents evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of bringing the Phalene to the household before acquiescing to a kid’s request. “The Phalene can teach children responsibility and become a pleasant addition to the family-or it can become a hassle,” she says. Bergen recommends you consider the following before deciding:
Questions to Consider Before Answering Should You Get The Phalene Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Phalene? Households must come to an agreement in advance who is to be in charge of feeding, walking, bathing and picking up after the Phalene.
Do you have an area for the Phalene, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in townhouses or apartments may be better suited to a bird, a cat, or fish, rather than the Phalene. Check your library or online to find out more about Phalenes to determine if another breed may be more appropriate for your family.
Rearing the Phalene is time consuming and can be expensive. Your family should understand that they will have to forego other activities to spend time with the Phalene. If that idea is too daunting, parents might consider delaying until the child is committed enough to help raise the Phalene.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Phalene
Bergen advises the entire family meet the Phalene before deciding to take it home. Owning the Phalene is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
