Springer Spaniel Puppy lunging at our Kids
We jut recently purchased a 8 week male puppy and have had him for a week. He is lunging at my daughters (2 and 4) faces and is constantly nipping and biting us.
My younger daughter does not like be on the floor at all if he is around in fear that he is going to bit her. What can we do to stop the biting. When we yell he gets more aggressive and we ultimately put him in his crate till he calms down. We will take any help.

He is showing normal signs of puppy pack behaviour but you are right to try and teach him it is not acceptable.
What I did with George every time he nipped or lunged I would shout ayyeeeeeee, stand up and walk away so they learn that that behaviour means no mroe attention. They soon get it and learn better mannersReturn to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
