Tick Tactics

It is the season of those dreaded ticks. You know how it goes; you curl up with your springer at the end of the day and while stroking him you feel that dreaded lump - yuck its a tick. Well all is not lost; I have written you a full guide to recognising and removing ticks.

Springing Videos

We have launched a page of Springer Videos, including some great ones of George (if i say so myself). The first one was taken this weekend of him springing in a meadow, set to some very suitable music

If you have any more that you want me to laod, then send me the url to the 'you tube' and I can embed the video into the site.

Preparing Your Springer For The Arrival Of A Baby

If you are expecting, or know anyone who is expecting, then the new article on preparing your springer for a baby is well worth the read. Based upon my experince over the past 2 years where I managed to have 2 babies!!

Springer Pack Updates

I have developed the pack psychology pages to include more details on how to assert yourself as the alpha of your pack. This may help to reduce any behavioural problems and generally take any leadership responsility off their shoulders. Hope they meet your requirements. You need to know how to act like an Alpha dog around your Springer; sending those everyday messages that you are the dominant dog will relieve your Springer of any responsibility Where both you, and your Springer Spaniel, sleep will send out status signals to your Springer, but it can also influence the responsibility your Springer feels for your family's protection as I found out recently. Where, when and how both you, and your Springer, eat will send a message to your dog about your respective positions in the pack order. By inserting these small rituals everyday into your routines, you are sending the message to your dog that you are the boss because you control feeding for the pack.
