Sooner or later, you are going to hear: “Mom, can we get that Stabyhoun puppy?”
Instead of dodging the question, parents are advised to decide whether or not the clan is ready for a new dog, and even moreso a Stabyhoun, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the nation’s foremost provider of early childcare.
When considering “should the family get the Stabyhoun” Bergen recommends parents weigh the plusses and minuses of adding the Stabyhoun to the family prior to giving in to a kid’s wish. “The Stabyhoun can teach kids about responsibility and be a wonderful addition to your household-or it can be a burden,” she has said. Bergen recommends parents think about the following before deciding:
Questions to Ask Before Deciding Should You Get The Stabyhoun Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Stabyhoun? Households must agree in advance who is to be the one responsible for feeding, walking, bathing and picking up after the Stabyhoun.
Do you have room for the Stabyhoun, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in apartments or townhouses may prefer a bird, a fish, or cat, rather than the Stabyhoun. Check your local library or Internet to find out more about Stabyhouns to decide if another animal may be more appropriate for the household.
Rearing the Stabyhoun is a big committment and not cheap. Family members has to know that they may have to give up existing activities to spend time with the Stabyhoun. If the prospect is too much of a committment, you might consider waiting until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Stabyhoun.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Stabyhoun
Bergen suggests the whole household meet the Stabyhoun before agreeing to take it home. Getting the Stabyhoun is a big commitment, so decide carefully before adopting a furry new family member.
