confused springer spaniel owner

by kate morris

My springer spaniel has always whinged a bit before going outfor a walk and in the car out of excitement.

After recovering recently from anaemia he has started crying as soon as I get up in the morning and when he wants to go out in the afternoon. He also has begun crying when my other dog doesn't want to play with him.

I hate seeing him so pent up as you can see him shaking in the morning even. it makes no difference if he's had a poop, or if I tell him off. He just appears to be on a mission to bully me into whatever he wants. I'm at a loss as what to do next and its getting more stressful by the day, I'd be grateful for any advice. thanks

As much as You love him, My advice would be to make sure that You aren't making a BIG commotion over it. That's probably what he wants and knows that he will get his way. Mine will whine now and then very low as to hint. I tell him, "NO CRY!" and ignore him. He has learned to get used to doing things on My Schedule. They are allot like kids, and will eventually get it. Good luck and BE STRONG! LOL
