Any advice on springer spaniel puppy biting?

I have an 11 week old Springer Spaniel puppy (my first puppy ever). He is biting like puppies do! I know this is normal behavior, but not sure what I can do besides offer him a toy, etc....he just wants to bite and chew on furniture. any suggestions? Thanks...Kelly

Hi there,

This is perfectly normal, we are going through the same with our 10 week old puppy. I have a full guide to Springer Puppy Biting and Springer Puppy Chewing. This should answer your questions. Hope it helps

Springer Spaniel Biting NEW
by: Michael In Scotland

My Springer Spaniel Maisie is 3.5 months old. I have allowed her to go crazy with her toys when she is in the "mad hour" before bedtime or after a long walk and being home. However, I have taught her by my voice alone (assertive voice and louder than normal) "NO! Maisie" This is enough to make her stop. You need to be consistent with the Spaniel as they will try it on when they think they have the chance. Show them by voice, who is boss. Don't hit them. They will be afraid to explore

Our springer JJ was exactly the same, I couldn`t walk anywhere without him hanging off my trouser leg or sock! I wondered if he`d ever stop and allow us to walk freely around the house and he did and now he doesn`t chew on anything but his own toys, he`s a really good boy.
Good luck with your puppy,he will grow out of it and give you lots of fun and enjoyment.

Hi - make sure your pup knows you are the boss! Read the info on here about The Springer Pack, its really important that your pup knows you are in charge!

I always moved my pups away from things they should not be chewing and growled at feels funny at first but its really important and it does work! Although they are opportunist too especially when bored so it will always happen every now and again :)
(I have 2 springer pups Monty 1 and Baxter 9 mths)
