Is these good reasons for me to tell my mom so i can get a dog?
Asked: Is these good reasons for me to tell my mom so i can get a dog?
OK so first of all please dont say im to young and inexperienced to get one!!!
So for a long time i have wanted a Shiba Inu but could never get one because my mom would say no because she doesnt have the money and I wouldnt take care of it (Which is completely false because I take complete care of her cat). So I would like your opinion on how i should convince her or if what I have now is enough;
I am 16. I have a job which isnt amazing but at the same time im not complaning because I make more money than my friends and can afford to buy nicer stuff and do more. I am a straight B honor roll and im usually 1.5-.5 away from the A honor roll all year long!
I have helped train my dads dog and both of my grandparents dogs and they seem to like me. I am a softly but I AM the DOMINATE ONE and i make sure they know it. I have read a lot about the Shiba and I can completely handle one! I love going on long walks/runs, I like to play, I do have free time, and I have a big forest down the street with paths and flat grass lands in it. I understand that they arnt the best with other dogs but i honestly think its what they re exposed to as a puppy and i will definatly have puppy play dates with my grandparents, dads, and friends dogs. This way he will get used to other animals. I would get one in the mid-late spring or very early summer of next year! (That way school would mostly be out of the way so i can focus more on puppy and train a lot more!)
I plan on having full custody on the dog (I pay for everything!!!!) I want to pay for everything not just to have a point on my side but more so to prove to myself that I can do it! My dad has a membership to Sams club and My Uncle has one to Costco and they both told me I could buy toys and treats from there! ( Not the food because what I have researched the dog food they sell there is by far not the best) (im going to go with Blue Buffalo since its a good brand and its not horrible expensive) I really dont want anyone to help me buy anything unless i absolutely need the help!
I plan on getting him every toy his little heart desires and more! lol! I plan on getting him licensed and neutered. (Is getting him neutered a good or bad idea? I heard it doesn't really matter for Shibas since they need to be on a leash at all times unless in a fenced in yard and my dads fence is 8ft tall.) And Most Important I PROMISE I WILL GIVE HIM A LOVING AND CARING HOME THAT HE DESERVES!!!
My mom said no OVER a year ago when i had no job and no money! please dont post mean comments saying their house their rules because i know but thats not what I was asking for.
So based on what I just wrote is that a good enough reason to convince my mom or not? The last time we had a getting a dog conversation was almost a year ago when i didnt have a job. Would you let me get one? and what is your opinion on me being a dog owner? Is there anything else that i need in order to be prepared for me asking her and telling her all of this? PLEASE HELP!!! Your response it GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! THANKS!!!
What happens in two years when you graduate? Are you planning on going to college? Can't have a dog in the dorms, and then your mom will have to take care of it. I also think you are underestimating the cost of a dog. Even getting into a vet is a minimum of $50, vaccines are 20-50, the cost of the dog… Ect. I would just wait until you are actually independent.
I bet your house smells lovely.
