How to Convince Your Mother to Let You Get
a Dog. If you’ve dreamed of canine companionship
but a stubborn parent is standing in your way, use this guide to champion all the benefits
of a family dog. You will need Responsibility and perseverance. Step 1. Research the right type of dog for your family
and lifestyle as well as the cost of the license, shots, and other fees. Be as knowledgeable as possible. Show off several possible options to get your
mother interested and emotionally involved in picking a cute furry friend. Step 2. Display enough responsibility to take care
of a dog by keeping up with your chores, cleaning your room, and maintaining good grades in
school. Step 3. Talk about the benefits of getting a dog such
as security at home, friendship, and more time outside playing instead of lounging in
front of the TV. Step 4. Offer incentives such as chipping in for the
cost, or ask for a dog as a gift for a birthday or for a major personal accomplishment like
straight A’s. A part-time job will help with the costs of
the dog and speak volumes on your commitment level. Step 5. Think of possible reasons your mother doesn’t
want a dog and come up with counter arguments to keep her from saying no right away. Step 6. Beg as a last resort. If nothing’s working, drop the topic, but
bring it up periodically until a compromise is reached and a new puppy or dog is adopted. Did you know The bloodhound, known for its
keen sense of smell, is the only dog breed to have the evidence it collects allowed in
a court of law.

  • My problem is that we have other dogs but I want one for my own to take care of. Non of my dogs want to plays with me or even be around me they are really independent but I want one that relies on me. Also my sis is leaving for college in a week and I'm going to be really lonely without her. But my mom say we don't have the money for a puppy and she doesn't want to care for it. But part of the main reason I want one is so I have something to care for but I don't know what to say with the money. Can anyone help me?

  • I had a doberman when i was little.. but then my parents got divorced so they had to sell him.. but my parents all still friends..

  • I've asked my Mum if I could get a dog several times, I asked a few months ago, and she said "you can get a dog once all your older siblings move out". My older siblings are all planning to move out this year. I'm gonna walk everyday, do chores and get good grades, so when they try to think of a reason why I can't have one I have a counter argument. Thank you for this video!

  • It won't really work because my mom says that we are not home enough. Convincing your parents to getting a dog is actually harder than it looks. One reason, like I said is because if you're kid is at school, dad is working, mom is working, dog is at home alone, you don't spend much time with your dog anymore because you are too busy.

  • IT WORKED! OML!
    Mom- "Since you're responsible and reliable and always keep your stuff on top, we're going to get a dog right n-"

    "OMG MOM IM CRYING THIS IS THE GREATEST MOMENT IN HISTORY THIS IS MAGIC OMG OMG OMG!!! LETS GET A HUSKY!!! BOSTON TERRIER!! RETRIEVER MIX OMGGGGGGGGGGG"

  • MY PARENTS JUST SAY YOU CAN GET AS MANY DOGS AS YOU WANT WHEN YOU MOVE OUT I HAVE BEEN CRYING FOR 4 YEARS PLZ HELP !:(

  • So today I asked my mom, "Mom, can I have a dog please? I get good grades & I do chores!" "I will get you a dog but u have to wait until your bday," my mom answered. OMG IM SO HAPPY

  • Daughter: "I want a dog please please"
    Mom: "I said no don't you understand"
    Daughter: "But i promise to keep the dog fit by giving long walks twice in a day"
    Mom: "That's like my girl, go get one"

    ..
    .
    Dog died.
    Daughter still chatting with his boyfriend on the phone.

  • Luckily I already have a dog and 2 of them one of them being my profile picture! Feel bad for those who aren’t allowed to have one

  • You know what's weird? My dad is like "Sure! I would love a dog son we should get one" but my mom is like "We can't afford everything for a dog your not responsible go to your room and clean it"

  • My birthday is coming soon, and I will soon ask my mom if I'm allowed to get one. I hope she let me get one 😀

  • I will try these but i feel like ive already asked way too many times and also ive had pets in the past and they were too much for me because they were boring and i couldnt play with them so i kind of forgot about them and one died and i had to give the other away so now she sees me as irresponsible
