Sooner or later, you are going to be asked: “Dad, may I have that Thai Ridgeback puppy?”
Rather than ignore the question, parents are advised to consider if their clan is prepared for a new dog, and even moreso a Thai Ridgeback, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this nation’s foremost provider of early childcare.
When pondering “should the family get the Thai Ridgeback” Bergen suggests the parents evaluate the pros and cons of adding the Thai Ridgeback to the family prior to agreeing to a child’s wishes. “The Thai Ridgeback can teach our kids about responsibility and be a pleasant addition to the household-or it can be a mistake,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen advises families think about the following before committing:
Things to Consider Before Deciding Should You Get The Thai Ridgeback Puppy
Who will care for the Thai Ridgeback? Families must come to an agreement in advance who will be the one responsible for walking feeding, bathing and cleaning up behind the Thai Ridgeback.
Do you have an area for the Thai Ridgeback, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in townhouses or apartments may prefer a bird, a fish, or cat, rather than the Thai Ridgeback. Check at the library or online to learn more about Thai Ridgebacks to learn if another animal may be more suitable for your family.
Raising the Thai Ridgeback is time consuming and may be expensive. The family should know that they will have to forsake current activities to properly care for the Thai Ridgeback. If this thought turns out to be too much of a committment, you might think about postponing until the child is old enough to help care for the Thai Ridgeback.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Thai Ridgeback
Bergen advises the whole household meet the Thai Ridgeback before committing to take it home. Rearing the Thai Ridgeback is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
