Please can anyone help me. On a night when my dog is crated which he has always been, he turns very nasty. He has never actually bitten me till last night.


I'm scared he will bite my grandson he can also b nasty through day but mostly on a night I would appreciate any help hes 9 months old and has he gets older hes getting more nastier x


From Anna@love Springe Spaniels.com

First I would suggest you speak to your vet and get him neutered, this is very good at reducing aggression in male dogs.

Second I would suggest you review who is actually the boss in the house as it sounds like he is showing dominant behaviour.

You need to create the Springer Spaniel Pack environment within your home.


Good luck

Crate problems NEW
by: Anonymous

My 1 1/2 ess did this at night time when we would tell him to go into his crate he wouldn't, so we would throw toys/treats into crate to try & entice him, if we went to touch him to try & get him in he would growl and go to bite us, so in the end we gave up the crate and now he sleeps happily in our bedroom, they are very clingy dogs and love to be near their owners at all times so maybe he/she is trying to tell you that they don't want to be locked in a crate alone, they would much rather be near their owner. Try putting a blanket/bed either just outside of your bedroom or if you don't mind inside of your bedroom and then your dog will have somewhere comfy to sleep and will love being closer to you, we have never looked back since allowing our ess to sleep in the same room as us, ess are very loving, needy dogs and like to think they are human too! It is nerve wracking trusting your dog to sleep out of their crates but if you put yourself in the dogs position would you like to be locked away in a crate away from the person you love & would do anything for

re aggression NEW
by: misty springer

having him neuterted may not solve this! my advise would be to ask your vet about tardac which is a chemical castration if this dosnt work then you no having it done for real wont and you would have put him through an op for no reason, so please do not listen to the people that say have him done when they dont no why hes doing it! if its fear aggession then having him neutered will make it worse... im not sure where about you live but i no a very good behaviourist thats based in coventry if your interested just pm me on facebook and i'll give you her details...

His space, his bed. He rules. But I wouldn't suggest pinning unless you really know what you are doing & are confident as they pick up on our emotions very easily. It could be that what started as a small 'get out of my space' has escalated as you are wary of when it might happen and he has picked up on your anxiety.
Get professional help; the benefits are so rewarding.
Good luck

Maybe he has an internal injury and wants to get your attention

Dont pin him! NEW
by: Anonymous

Get in a qaulified, experienced and recommended behaviourist in to help.

Dominance has nothing to do with this, you need someone to come and see the exact behaviour, when it started, what is setting him off, etc

by trying to pin him, you will cause yourself more problems.

try the apdt

another suggestion NEW
by: Anonymous

That definitely sounds like a dominance issue what i did for my bitch as she was getting quite dominant when we introduced another bitch when she was about 1 was I inticed her out of the crate with a biscuit then took her by the scruff turned her on her side and placed my hand on her side of her neck just enough to keep her still then when she totally submitted her body stopped being ridged i would let go and wait a moment then tell her to go and give her the biscuit it took about a month but now she is 5 years old and have no more problems with her.
