@LeahDaPickle,
If you were my kid showing responsibility; doing your homework, doing your chores, keeping your word about when will be back home, would go a long way to convincing me to get a dog.

Different parents are different. If my daughter wanted to have a dog, the conversation would revolve around taking responsibility in general (which as a father, I think is fair since a dog is a big responsibility).

@LeahDaPickle,
Have you laid out a written plan / contract on how you will care for the dog/contribute to the costs of owning a dog?

@ehBeth,
And include in that how you will pay for the dog... this goes beyond the price or adoption fee...but food, vet bills, and other items the dog will need...

I want a dog for myself, and I would get one even if I didn't have a daughter. I am waiting to see what I can get my daughter to do; grades, chores... for the dog she thinks is for her.

But I am not a good father.... and I hate shoveling snow.
