Springer Spaniel Support
I'm new to this web site, bringing home a springer puppy about 8 1/2 months ago. Though I've read several books about springers, I find reading stories about springers on this web site has revealed greater detail about their behavior.
I would like to communicate with some of the owners, via emai, but understand many people would not like giving out their email address. Perhaps a question and answer page would be good. I'd like to ask how I can train Maggie not to puppy nip. When she is tired, she tends to over bite, as if frustrated. If I hold her mouth closed for a few seconds, she understands what is expected of her and calms down. I concern myself with a 10 month old puppy nipping a child, in play biting. She is not mean, but perhaps over stimulated by play or excitement. Recently we've been giving Maggie time out and she catches on very fast and calms down.
