Help with a springer spaniel puppy

(crossmaglen armagh northern ireland)
I have a 9 month old springer. I have only had him 5 weeks. I think I got him a little late, he is really well looked after, sometimes better than me.
He gets lots of exercise around the fields and rivers of northern ireland were we live, my problem is hes a little nervous when you go to pet him he goes down to the ground on all fours.
Also I'm having problems making him retreive things ,if I throw something he will chase it lift it and just drop it, he seems to run after sticks best in the river. He wont touch a ball, I ordered some dummies yesterday to see how he goes on and see if he will bring them back to me.
I spend a lot of time with him, maybe I need to be more patient, I want to try and have him out on hunting season next year, any help and advice would be great,thank u very much ..BRIAN FARRELL..!u can email me any time thanks again..Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
