My Springer Spaniel won't respond to us on walks.
We have two springer spaniels. 6 month old Springers, one is excellent on walks and comes back on recall the other is so interested in the surroundings that she pays no attention to us at all. She comes on recall in the house and garden but so many scents on walks means she just runs away so engrossed in her hunting instinct that she pays no attention to us at all and is often missing for long periods of time.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to gain her interest as this is a nightmare and also means she can't run around and get the exercise she needs as she is confined to a lead when out and none of us really enjoy what should be a pleasant time for all.
We have tried treats she is just not interested, squeaky toys and balls, she will respond to all of these in her home but out is just of no interest to her.
Any ideas? HELPReturn to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
