Sooner or later, every parent is going to be asked: “Mommy, can we get that Yorkshire Terrier puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents are advised to decide whether or not their clan is ready for a puppy, especially a Yorkshire Terrier, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s leading provider of early childhood education.
When pondering “should we get the Yorkshire Terrier” Bergen recommends that parents weigh the positives and negatives of adding the Yorkshire Terrier to the family before acquiescing to a kid’s wish. “The Yorkshire Terrier can teach children responsibility and be a wonderful addition to your household-or it can be a mistake,” she has said. Bergen recommends you think about the following before deciding:
Questions to Think About Before Deciding Should You Get The Yorkshire Terrier Puppy
Who will care for the Yorkshire Terrier? Families should come to an agreement in advance who will be responsible for feeding, bathing, walking and cleaning up behind the Yorkshire Terrier.
Do you have room for the Yorkshire Terrier, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in townhouses or apartments may be better suited to a fish, a bird, or cat, rather than the Yorkshire Terrier. Check at the library or online to discover more about Yorkshire Terriers to learn if another pet may be more suitable for the family.
Raising the Yorkshire Terrier is a big committment and not cheap. The family should know that they are expected to forsake current activities to spend time with the Yorkshire Terrier. If that thought turns out to be too much of a committment, you may suggest delaying until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Yorkshire Terrier.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Yorkshire Terrier
Bergen recommends the whole family meet the Yorkshire Terrier in advance of deciding to take it home. Raising the Yorkshire Terrier is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
