Springer Spaniel puppy chasing cats
when he was 7 weeks old
My springer spaniel is 11 weeks old and he can be nice to the two cats I have at time but other times he can be a real pain and threat towards them. Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
I dont want to get rid of any of them but since the cats were here first it would be the dog that has to go even though i dont want to leave him. I was wondering if you could help me with how to stop him going after my two cats as he graps a hold of them.
First he is a puppy so he is doing what is natural to him, however it can be addressed.
Make sure your cats have a safe place up high in the main room so they can get away from him when he becomes naughty. Also make sire that they have a safe place in the house they can escape to so they can have a time out from your springer.
Over time as your puppy grows up this should become less of an issue as your springer gets used to the cats.
