Somebody hit my Springer's light switch

5 posts in this topic

Some of you know I've been concerned about my 14 week old Springers lack of interest in retrieving. Didn't seem that interested.

I took him out to SandCreek's training session tonight - and they pitched him a clip wing - immediately he went in a crouch, started barking for a while at it - then picked it up and brought it back to me. I tossed it a couple more times - and man, was HE REVVED UP!

After that he was flying around in the field - messing with the other Springers as they came out to train - and generally acting like a Springer is supposed to act.

Amazing - it's like someone flipped a switch in him. Like one of the guys there said "He found out his purpose in life."

Very cool...

He's pretty young yet, be patient!!! Getting him used to your family and routine and some obedience work is all that’s needed at that young age. Patience.

10-4. It was just nice to see him get fired up.

He's in puppy kindergarten - wrestles with the other dog in our house - and gets lots of socialization. His obedience training is on track.

I"m Just happy he knows his purpose in life.

I know most of the guys that train down at Sand Creek and they know their stuff. You will learn a lot if you keep going and doing some training a couple times a month.
