Sooner or later, every parent is going to hear: “Mom, can we get that Boykin Spaniel puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents should consider whether or not their family is ready for a new puppy, and even moreso a Boykin Spaniel, according to Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, this nation’s leading provider of early childhood education.
When asking yourself “should the family get the Boykin Spaniel” Bergen suggests parents weigh the plusses and minuses of adding the Boykin Spaniel to the household before agreeing to a kid’s request. “The Boykin Spaniel can teach children about responsibility and be a fantastic addition to your family-or it can become a mistake,” she is quoted as saying. Bergen suggests families consider the following before committing:
Things to Think About Before Deciding Should You Get The Boykin Spaniel Puppy
Who will be the one to care for the Boykin Spaniel? Households should come to an agreement beforehand who will be the one responsible for bathing, feeding, walking and picking up after the Boykin Spaniel.
Do you have room for the Boykin Spaniel, and does your landlord allow dogs? Families who live in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a fish, a cat, or bird, instead of the Boykin Spaniel. Check the library or Internet to find out more about Boykin Spaniels to learn if another pet may be more appropriate for your family.
Rearing the Boykin Spaniel is a big committment and not cheap. The family has to realize that they may have to forego other activities to properly care for the Boykin Spaniel. If the idea seems too daunting, parents might suggest delaying until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Boykin Spaniel.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Boykin Spaniel
Bergen advises the whole household meet the Boykin Spaniel before deciding whether to take it home. Owning the Boykin Spaniel is a big commitment, so think carefully before adopting one.
