Hi
I need your help to convince my parents to get me a dog. I’ve been asking one for as long as I can remember. I’ve tried everything- I get good grades and I’m responsible, I even made them a PowerPoint presentation a while back with everything they need to know. I’ve done so much research and I’m so ready for a dog but nothing’s working.. I need help idk what else to do.. any tips that may work? Or have worked for you? Thank you

You need to understand why they dont want to get a dog first. If one of your parents is, say, allergic to dogs, then you may as well give it up. The responsibility of a family pet like a dog falls on everyone in the household, if your family just doesnt like dogs or doesnt think they could care for one, then unfortunately you will need to learn to accept it. Why not looking into and asking for an lower commitment pet?

Imagine if you found a partner right, and you had a kid with that person right, and then that kid was like "ayo, can I bring an animal into this house?". I'd say no too to be honest. Maybe they just don't want a dog, who knows.

Ultimately you need everyone in the household to want a dog to make it work.

Dogs need to be exercised, entertained, fed, cared for. People need to want to engage it and understand what it wants. If your parents don't want a dog its not fair on the animal to get it.
Who's going to look after the dog during the day, who's going to train it, pay the vet bills. Dogs are great but are really a part of the family and as such need the whole family to want dogs.
