Springer Spaniel Biting

by Mark
(Crisfield, md)

I have 2 springers 4 months apart with 2 sep personalities, the are about 3 years old . Not every time but the one often bites me when I asked him to do something like getting off the bed and he doesn't move and I help him down by his collar, he'll turn around quickly and nip or bite me drawing blood, how do I punish this behavior ? And why does he act this way as his brother it totally calm and obedient .?

I also had this problem with our now six year old male springer. I had his thyroid tested and he had very low levels and now takes thyrozine twice daily. We saw immediate improvement in his behavior once the thyroid meds were given to him.

springer biting! NEW
by: Anonymous

I have the same problem - my 1-1/2 year old springer is as sweet as can be - until I reach for his collar to help him get off the bed or out of the car. If he is on leash and another dog tries to pass by I have to stop moving and when I reach to pull him in close to me he nips at me. Anything he "hunts" and picks up is a challenge to get away from him but that is not the case with his toys - he'll give those up without hassle. It seems to come down to a dominance thing - if he doesn't want to do what he's asked to do, and I move to redirect him (by reaching for him) he nips at me. He has broken the skin more than once and I've had to have medical attention once. When he's "in the zone" he seems to lose all ability to listen. Thoughts or suggestions?

Biting and Aggressive Behavior NEW
by: Suzanne

I really don't want to give up on my sweet Springer Winston. He is 6.5 yrs. and we have done everything we know to stop his aggressive behavior. He has tried to bite both my husband and myself on several occasions and finally succeeded yesterday. My husband had to have stitches in his hand. We have tried the alpha dog regime, but does not work. He can be so sweet and lovable, but when anyone comes to the house it is like he has a split personality and when it happens he seems not to recognize either of us until he calms down. Can anyone offer anything for this problem. My husband is ready to find him another home.
