Springer Spaniel always panting

by Scott

I sent my 7 month male pup to boarding for two weeks, he was staying in the womans house for two weeks and every thing was ok she said.

He came back on Sunday, he has never stopped panting and jumping up at the front door and the same with the window, he wont sleep up on our bed at night, he throws himself on the floor and moves about all night, does any on know why hes so restless?

Stressed? NEW
by: Anonymous

If there were other dogs at the sitters it could be that your dog is missing the company and is actually stressed because she is back at home.

Panting NEW

I agree with Caroline, panting is definitely a sign of stress. That doesn't mean something bad happened to your pup while you were gone, but it could just mean the fact that you were gone stressed him. Were there other dogs at the dog sitters?

There are several things you can do to help alleviate stress. I have a Thundershirt for my Springer, which I use to help calm her during storms. You can also buy a DAP Pheromone Collar. Both items can be found online if not local to your area. Exercise helps a lot too. If you are able a nice 30 minute walk per day would be a good idea. Or two 15 minute walks.

If this were my pup I would make a visit to the Vet just to be sure there was nothing physically wrong.

Hope This Helps? NEW

I have had Springer Spaniels for the last 15 years but the behaviour your dog is showing in my opinion is one of stress. In a two week period, there must have been something to CHANGE him so much. Don't take all was OK for an answer as obviously there was something/somethings that has caused this stress. Give Rescue Remedy 4 drops in water on food and treats. Your dog has been exposed to something very much outside his comfort zone.
