Hi



I know its hard to be dominant with your dog at times but if you dont then hes just going to take advantage. Stand your ground with him and im sure everything will be fine.

Good Luck

Yes, I agree with Michele. Nip this in the bud immediately. It is an ongoing thing. You always have to be ready to correct the behaviour - but you can do it! Don't give up, just get it under control. It was really difficult for me to do with our Sammy because I'm not the "take-charge" type person.

Keep us posted!

Biting & Barking
by: Michele

As you vet told you....go back to basic obedience. The problem a lot of people have with training their dog is that once they leave the class they stop training! Dog training must be ongoing. Your dog's problem is that she thinks she is in charge, which you have probably unknowingly allowed. You and you partner must take charge and take back the pack leader role. If you have previously gone to obedience class I would contact them, explain what's going on and ask them to give you some tips.

Do this today! Biting & barking are signs of agression, which only escalates if allowed to continue. Springers are great dogs, but they must know who is in charge! You don't have to be mean to accomplish this, but you do need to take control. Good luck!
