How to wean my Springer from the cage at night.
Our 3 year old Springer sleeps happily all night in her cage at night time with the door locked. But we'd like to gradually move her bed outside the cage, as the cage takes up so much space in the kitchen, and we could then move her bed around the house more easily. We started by trying to leave the door open at night, but at 12 or 1 or 4 in the morning she comes out and starts scratching at the kitchen door telling us it morning. I assume the best thing is just to ignore that for a few nights until she gives up? Has anyone else tried weaning a Springer from a cage?
She is fine when left alone for 3 hours during the day - we no longer put her in the cage, and she is allowed all of downstairs, although sometimes she sleeps in her cage anyway.Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
