13 week old Springer with our 11 month old baby
My fiancé and I got our 13 week old springer about 2 weeks ago. At first, our 11 month old son was a bit wary of him, but has since started to accept him (patting and stroking him etc). The problem seems to be with the puppy, at first he was also wary of our baby, but since seems to be shoving him when our baby is on the floor playing, and he even jumped up on the sofa and knocked our baby onto the floor.
Is this just normal puppy behaviour, as this is how he played with his brothers, or is he jealous of our baby?
He is also jumping up at kitchen cupboards and jumping on the sofa, no matter how many times we say no and put him back on the floor, he keeps jumping back up. He is also stealing our clothes and towels, how do we let him know chewing his toys is good, stealing our clothes is bad? We've tried praising when chewing his toys, and saying NO and removing the clothing, but it doesn't seem to be working.
Please can anyone help, any advice is greatly appreciated!!!Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
