My english springer spaniel bites strangers when they come in the house

by Lucy
(England )


how can I stop my englsh springer spaniel biting strangers when they first come in the house. Do you think its a dominate thing?

She is 6 yrs old we got her from a dog rescue before we had her she was abandoned so we dont know wether she had that problem before we got her

we would like to know some tips how to get this under control.


Hi there
Does she bite them or nip them? If its more playful than agressive its attention seeking behaviour. So when she does it get the person to let out a high pitched yelp - aieeeeeeee turn their back and walk away so she learns that the behaviour just gets her ignored
