Sooner or later, every parent is likely to hear: “Daddy, may I have that Sussex Spaniel puppy?”
Instead of avoiding the question, parents are advised to ponder if their clan is ready for a new puppy, especially a Sussex Spaniel, says Sharon Bergen, SVP of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s leading provider of early childhood education and care.
While deciding “should you get the Sussex Spaniel” Bergen recommends that parents ascertain the plusses and minuses of adding the Sussex Spaniel to the household prior to giving in to a child’s request. “The Sussex Spaniel can teach kids about responsibility and become a great addition to the household-or it can become a hassle,” she says. Bergen advises you ponder the following before committing:
Questions to Consider Before Answering Should You Get The Sussex Spaniel Puppy

If this prospect turns out to be too much of a committment, you should consider waiting until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Sussex Spaniel.
