Thread: Springer Spaniel pup

  1. #1

    Springer Spaniel pup

    This will be my first ever, Springer Spaniel. Had worked Labradors before !!. I know they are chalk and cheese.
    But hopefully , he will be alright, just have to let him be a puppy. And bring him on slowly. It will be another 4 weeks, until he can leave his mother. Really looking forward to that.
    Any tips would be grateful, if you have knowledge on this breed .
    Here he Is.

    Hi Penta. Nice looking pup if its anything like mine he will lose most of the white on his ear. Enjoy him. Basics same as labs steadiness is most important before you start any advanced work with him. It's good timing you will be coming into spring time when he's ready to start more advanced stuff.

    Yep. For the next 12 years or so You know what they say, A Lab' is born half-trained, and a spaniel will die half-trained

    Good luck with him. He looks to be a wee cracker
    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care
