What is a good way to convince my mom and dad that we should get a pet? Please read below.

I really really want a dog or and Ocicat, but they can think of excuses about everything we think up, one of the most popular is that we won't take care of it. Any ideas on how to convince them?

Ok - here you go. You want the dog? Then start emptying the trash without being asked. Make your bed. Put clothes in hamper .Clean up bathroom. Offer to wash the car. Do your homework . Get good grades. Don't brag or even mention all this good stuff you're doing.Don't give up. Don't mention the dog again, not once. If none of this works, I'll adopt you. I have lots of dogs! lol

Tell them if they don't get a dog, someone could break into your house and steal everything you own.

This sounds strange but my best friend wanted a cat do she wrote a persuasive essay like you would for school on why she wants a cat and how she would help out and stuff and after they read they got her a cat for her birthday and it was only like a week after she wrote it

When I want a pet, I usualy try to find as many pros as possible. I also try to find reasons it would benefit for THEM. Mine always work, but you have different parents, so it may not work. Also, whining about it or bugging them will make them think that you aren't ready for a dog. Another thing that can help is to show them that you are responsible by taking really good care of a fish, hamster, e.t.c.

well tell them that if you prove yourself responsible then if you can get it also tell them if you can adopt one for a few days then they can see how much you'll care for the pet.

umm yea but you can ask if they can possibly just let you see if you can be able to care for it.
