It's so hard to say no to your kids when they beg for a puppy.

However, the welfare of an animal must be the most important consideration, and there are plenty of reasons why adopting a puppy might not be appropriate.

It's not being cruel;

a dog can be a ten- or fifteen-year commitment.

Here are some good reasons to say no to your kids when they ask if they can have a puppy …

1. Lack of Time

You should definitely say no to your kids regarding a puppy if you don't have the time to look after it.

The fact is that whoever the pup officially belongs to, you will end up walking and feeding it.

It's really not fair on a dog to be left alone all day, so if all adults work full-time then you can't give it the time it needs.
