Games for a springer spaniel
My 1.5 yr old male springer is a real joy but we want to find a game, as you mentioned like throwing and retrieveing a ball or something, in order to exercise him when walks are not an option. However, whenever he gets a ball or toy in his mouth, he has no interest whatsoever of bringing it back to us, but rather walks and trots around carrying it in his mouth while chasing butterflies, or knats. How can we use this "need" of his to have something in his mouth to create a game for him that also doubles as a way to give him exercise?
thats a tricky one when they don't bring it back. One game I do play with George that he loves is "seek it out". I hit small treats around the garden when he is inside and then release him and get him to snuffle them out. This works both inside and out and he just loves it.
If you don;t mind can I post your question on my FAQs page, maybe we can get you some more questions that way?
All the best
