Sooner or later, you are going to be asked: “Mom, can we get that Kuri puppy?”
Rather than dodge the question, parents should think about whether or not their family is ready for a new dog, and even moreso a Kuri, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s foremost provider of early childhood education and care.
While pondering “should we get the Kuri” Bergen recommends that parents weigh the positives and negatives of adding the Kuri to the family prior to giving in to a child’s request. “The Kuri can teach kids about responsibility and become a wonderful addition to your family-or it can become a regret,” she says. Bergen recommends families consider the following before deciding:
Questions to Think About Before Answering Should You Get The Kuri Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Kuri? Families must agree in advance who will be the one in charge of bathing, feeding, walking and picking up behind the Kuri.
Do you have room for the Kuri, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in townhouses or apartments may prefer a fish, a bird, or cat, rather than the Kuri. Check with the library or online to find out more about Kuris to decide if another breed may be more suited for your household.
Rearing the Kuri is time consuming and not cheap. The family has to understand that they will be expected to forsake current activities to properly care for the Kuri. If that thought is too daunting, you should suggest waiting until the child is committed enough to help care for the Kuri.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Kuri
Bergen recommends the whole household meet the Kuri prior to deciding to take it home. Rearing the Kuri is a long-term commitment, so decide carefully before adopting a furry new family member.
