Should you get a Spanish Mastiff puppy?Sooner or later, you are likely to hear: “Daddy, can we get that Spanish Mastiff puppy?”

Instead of avoiding the question, parents should consider if the family is prepared for a new dog, especially a Spanish Mastiff, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this country’s foremost provider of early childhood education and care.

When considering “should you get the Spanish Mastiff” Bergen advises that parents ascertain the plusses and minuses of bringing the Spanish Mastiff to the family before agreeing to a kid’s wish. “The Spanish Mastiff can teach kids about responsibility and become a great addition to a family-or it can become a burden,” she says.

Questions to Consider Before Answering Should You Get The Spanish Mastiff Puppy

Who will be the one to care for the Spanish Mastiff? Families should agree in advance who will be responsible for feeding, walking, bathing and cleaning up behind the Spanish Mastiff.

Do you have room for the Spanish Mastiff, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a bird, a fish, or cat, rather than the Spanish Mastiff. Check at the library or online to find out more about Spanish Mastiffs to decide if another dog may be more appropriate for your family.

Being the owner of the Spanish Mastiff is time consuming and not cheap. The family must understand that they are expected to give up current activities to properly care for the Spanish Mastiff. If this idea is too daunting, you may think about delaying until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Spanish Mastiff.

Conclusion: Should You Get A Spanish Mastiff

Bergen advises the whole family meet the Spanish Mastiff prior to deciding whether to take it home. Rearing the Spanish Mastiff is a big commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
