Springer Spaniel terrible two's??
I have a 2 year old springer spaniel and I have noticed in the last few weeks that he is starting to really act up. When I open the patio door he has run out the door and down to the main road which he never has done before. Ifg he did run out the door he would only run around the area of our apartment block. He is also starting to run off when we are out walking. He eventually gets back to me but goes much further then normal and even so far that he cant see us or we cant see him and he has again never done that before. Also, He travels in our boot of the car but has now started crawling/climbing over the back seats to get in to the main part of the car. Is this normal? Is he going through a terrible 2 stage? Is this him being rebellious? We have twin boys (14 months old) and he has always been treated as one of our own. He has never had a reason to feel left out or feel discluded. He is really one of the family so I dont know what brought this on.
Any help is appreciated, especially if you tell me he will grow out of it :) Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
