How to stop my springer barking
by Julia Lovell
I have a 3 year old springer spaniel male. Apart from the "pulling" problem which we have tried various methods to correct and given in, the main problem is his what I call "bossy barking"
When we go for a walk and stop to maybe talk to someone or look at something of interest he comes up and woof woof woofs inessantly until we start walking again. This is very rude of him and very annoying for us. We have tried squirting him with water which had a moderate effect for a time until he worked out just how far away to stand so that he avoided the jet of water! Once he gets this barking bee in his bonnet he just wont stop which is spoiling our walks with him. Any suggestions?Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
