My Springer Spaniel puppy is 8 weeks old and we have had him 3 days but he is constantly nipping at our trouser hems. I am not sure how to correct him from doing this, could you give me any tips please.

Hi Janet
Welcome to the mad world of springer spaniel love!!!!!!

This is a common problem, its their way of getting your attention. What you have to do whenever they nip at you is to let out a high pitch aaiiiieeeeeeee and turn your back on them.

By doing this you are letting them know you are not happy and they will not get your attention if they perist. George was just the same but with consitency and using this technique he stoped and has nevre mouthed or nipped since. Good luck and don't forget to send those puppy picture.
