10 month old Springer Spaniel showing strange behaviour help please
We have just taken on a 10 month old springer spaniel pup from a rescue centre. Ours will be his 3rd home however, there was no mention of the behaviour he has just started.
First few days he settled really well showing no sign of aggression whatsoever.
We have taken him long walks every day and read about the pack and ensuring we eat before him, walk through doors before him etc. Over the last few days he has shown some aggression between me and my daughter (she is 12).
He has a stare and wont listen to us, he wont follow simple commands and then he springs for our feet and barks and then runs around like mad - urinating everywhere!!
He doesn't do this with my husband. Its usually if my husband is not here and he has done this once per day over the last 2 days.
I really want to make this work for all of us and not sure what to do.
It ounds like you need some one on one advice from a dog behaviourist. I would speak with your vet and ask if they can recommend someone to work with you. Good Luck
