I give my 4 month old springer 2 x 20 minute walks a day, but when we get back home she still wants to run around the garden

I have a 4 month old springer spaniel who is currently walked twice a day for about 20 mins at a time, but when we get back home she either runs around the house or around the garden for quite a while longer and doesn't tire easily.
Should I increase the amount of time I walk her?from email@example.com
Welcome to the world of springer spaniels and their never ending source of energy!!!! I can take my 5 yr old for a 10 mile run and he still wants more;-)
I would suggest you add in 4 to 6 sessions of 10 to 15 min training sessions throughout the day, as that would focus her energy, and of course play time as that will increase the bond between you and tire her out.
I would avod increasing the walks themselves as Springer Spaniels who are walked too much too young can damage their bones.
For now stick to what you are doing and add in structured training and play time to tire her out. Oh and good luck
