Eventually, most parents are going to be asked: “Daddy, can we get that Smooth Collie puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents should consider whether their clan is prepared for a dog, and even moreso a Smooth Collie, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s leading provider of early childhood education.
While thinking about “should the family get the Smooth Collie” Bergen advises parents evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of adding the Smooth Collie to the family before agreeing to a kid’s request. “The Smooth Collie can teach kids responsibility and be a great addition to your family-or it can become a regret,” she has said. Bergen suggests you ponder the following before deciding:
Things to Consider Before Answering Should You Get The Smooth Collie Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Smooth Collie? Parents and kids must agree in advance who is to be the one responsible for bathing, walking, feeding and cleaning up behind the Smooth Collie.
Is there space for the Smooth Collie, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families living in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a fish, a bird, or cat, rather than the Smooth Collie. Check your local library or online to find out more about Smooth Collies to learn if another pet may be more appropriate for the household.
Rearing the Smooth Collie is a big committment and can be expensive. Your family must realize that they will be required to forego current activities to properly care for the Smooth Collie. If this prospect seems too daunting, you may consider delaying until the child is old enough to help care for the Smooth Collie.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Smooth Collie
Bergen advises the entire household meet the Smooth Collie before deciding to take it home. Rearing the Smooth Collie is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before adopting one.
