Male Springer and Women
My springer Boomer is 2 years old. He is a pretty good listener. I trained him to sit, stay, come, jump, roll over, and other commands.
He seems to have an obsession with my wife and or women.
When he and I are home during the day he gets time outside to run, time to sit at my feet while I work, he sleeps in his crate for a couple hours, goes on short trips with me, but then from 3pm - 5pm he just paces around the house.
Once my wife comes through the door at 5pm, he goes a little ballistic. He will run up to her, run in circles, and is so excited to see her that he sometimes pees a bit on the floor.
He will listen when one of us tells him "down" but he can't hold the command for very long, and she cant walk away and put her clothes and things away without having him next to her.
From that point forward he follows her around the house all night and will whine if he does not get to sit on her lap and exhibits a few annoying behaviors.
Is this normal for a young male springer, or is there some additional training we should work on? Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
