10 month old English Springer Spaniel whose behaviour is changing
We have had our 10 month old ESS, Bertie, since he was 8 weeks old. We have had no problems with him at all and he has a lovely temperment. Over the last week or so we have had problems getting him to go to bed (he has a cage for sleeping and has had all his life). He will lie on the floor and when you go to him to bring him to his bed he rolls over in a submissive pose.
Does anyone have any ideas about what could be casuing this change in behaviour and if there is anything we can do to turn him back into the happy puppy he has always been?From Anna@love-springer-spaniels.com
He is being a teenager and seeing what he can get away with. The submissive pose is nothing to worry about, he is not scared of you he is showing you deference and that is a good thing. I don't think you have any thing to worry about
