Eventually, you are likely to hear: “Mommy, can we get that Jagdterrier puppy?”
Rather than dodge the question, parents are advised to think about whether or not their family is prepared for a dog, and even moreso a Jagdterrier, according to Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s leading provider of early childhood care and education.
When considering “should we get the Jagdterrier” Bergen recommends parents ascertain the pros and cons of adding the Jagdterrier to the family before acquiescing to a kid’s wishes. “The Jagdterrier can teach kids responsibility and become a great addition to the household-or it can be a burden,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen suggests parents think about the following before deciding:
Things to Ask Before Answering Should You Get The Jagdterrier Puppy
Who is going to care for the Jagdterrier? Households must come to an agreement in advance who is to be the one in charge of feeding, bathing, walking and cleaning up behind the Jagdterrier.
Do you have an area for the Jagdterrier, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families living in townhouses or apartments may prefer a bird, a fish, or cat, instead of the Jagdterrier. Check the library or Internet to find out more about Jagdterriers to learn if another dog may be more suited for your household.
Rearing the Jagdterrier is a big committment and can be expensive. Family members must understand that they will be required to forsake existing activities to spend time with the Jagdterrier. If that requirement is too much of a committment, you might consider delaying until the child is responsible enough to help raise the Jagdterrier.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Jagdterrier
Bergen recommends the entire household meet the Jagdterrier in advance of agreeing to take it home. Owning the Jagdterrier is a huge commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
