Help, need springer info

I have heard these were hyper dogs, and we just got one about 2 months ago and it's true. Can anyone out there give any advice, he is about 8 months, he will listen somewhat but like today, i bring him to work with me everyday and today he sniffed up a rabbit and gone he was in the brush chasing, as i told him to come and so on, i might as well been talking to a wall. He did come back after about 2 minutes of doing circles and zig zags chasing the rabbit, but when you call for them, it's like the elevator isn't going to the top if ya know what i mean, is it just lack of command or is it something a guy could use a shock collar to correct, other wise for the most part he listens pretty well but give me some advice if ya can, i havn't hardly started working him on birds yet, just have been to busy at work, but for the most part he does listen to most commands, is it just the hunter comming out and needs to be refined? I can just imagine in the woods, on a scent and gone, what's the remedy or some what first step? We live about 10 minutes out of Duluth and have three acres with woods around, I was thinking maybe the first step, 15 ft. leash and a good walk in the woods and when he doesn't want to come put a little pressure on?

I grew up with a springer, "skippy" and as far as I remember her, she never had 4 paws on the ground any given moment. Having said that, she was the best dog I have ever hunted with. Very hyper up to 18-20 months, after that I could call her off and thing she was chasing. Could be boy hood memories, but she was a real pleasure to hunt with.

years and years later, I'm hunting with an English Setter, My old hunting buddy (Cocker Spaniel) is now retired, living his days on the couch fat and happy. Both dogs are giving my daughter the same memories growing up with good family/hunting dogs.

off topic a bit, but in a nut shell, every breed will have its share of hyper dogs, some breeds more and some breeds a bit less.

Forgot to answer your questions.

Many different ways to train a dog to stay close. I train my dogs to work close in the woods, and range some what in the fields.

Every day or every other day I'll walk my dog off leash in a field, woods, just in the back yard. when she starts to get past the range I want I'll say "hup and change direction" then she will swing around front. after a few weeks of walking in circles I'll do the same but this time I wont change direction. By then every time I say "hup" she looks back, and soon starts keeping the distance I want her to keep.

Once she keeps the distance, then I start with "go" which gives her free range, to work at what ever distance. I use this for fields.

There is tons of training info out there, you just have to find what works for your type of dog, hunting style, and how much time you have to train with.

last but not least E-collars work wonders if used the right way.

My springer hunter is 4 years old and still hyper as ever. He does listen great though. I kinda taught him with a shock collar. When he would run off I would hit the shocker and shock his arse. after about 10 times of shocking, I started using the double beep feature. When you hit the b button it beeps twice kinda like it does just before the zapper zaps. So he knows when he hears the beep-beep he stops. after a few times of that he listens great.

Springer Spaniel = Peter Pan. The dogs never grow up. Remember to burn off some of the octane before training sessions. Even "hyper" dogs listen and learn, they just need their head cleared. Stay with it. Springers are intuitive, beautiful, loyal, intellegent and second to none.

As far as e-collars....remember this above all other kernels of wisdom. They only re-inforce understood commands. Use it, but only when you KNOW the dog is disobeying.

I've herard so many times that springers are hyper, and I have yet to see one. I am on springer #3 and have hunted with a few others and can't say I saw that behavior. Do you think genitics comes into play?? All of mine have been almost to mellow, but I'll take that over an uncontrolable dog any day!

      Onlineessaywritingservice.review said that not all sites could be trusted. I agree with this statement. Anyone should check the modern websites they want to use.

      There should be three components in the work: the introduction, the argumentatively proved thesis, and the conclusion. There are no strict requirements for the arrangement of the components: the thesis can go to the conclusion, but the main task of the author is to ensure the logicality and integrity of the 99 papers reviews. Do not forget when using references to other people's work to mark it with appropriate references, and do not overload paragraphs - each should be marked one complete idea or argument. Introduction This is your calling card, a chance to interest the reader: with a word or phrase, a bold quote to hook and arouse curiosity, without deviating from the main thesis. Use a rough draft, because it is easier to find an interesting "hook" for the introduction while working on the essay, and then put it in the introduction. Remember the popular saying that a worthwhile thought always comes later!   Don't "pour water"; try to use words directly related to the topic of the essay. Mistakes: Blank. Applicants commit the sin of quoting popular people, telling primitive jokes, or using headlines and facts from the media that are annoying to the review committee. Such an introduction will not arouse positive emotions. Dry facts. The task of the introduction - to arouse interest: do not hesitate to be emotional, because the restrained presentation of the facts will leave the reader indifferent. Thesis When choosing a thesis statement, it should be firmly understood that it is not a scientifically proven fact or the result of conducted experiments and observations, but the main idea of the essay, which can be expressed in a few words. To be sure you have a thesis statement, imagine: the examiner put your written work aside and, without reading it, asks you what the main idea is. The two or three sentences you will need to answer are the thesis statement, a summary of the entire essay.   The topic offered in educational institutions often has different interpretations and approaches. You are not faced with the task of finding an unambiguous solution to the question posed - remember that they want to know your personal point of view, test your ability to think logically and be intellectually savvy. It is acceptable to quote from the works of any researcher or philosopher, explaining your understanding of their hypotheses and how they reflect the thesis of the paper. Prioritize unquestioned authorities: Aristotle, Einstein, Socrates, 20th century academics - do not use recent scholars, especially media darlings. Mistakes: To be or not to be? An overly philosophical approach to the problem will lead to a loss of firm ground and turn the essay into meaningless abstract reasoning. State a concrete, not too radical opinion. Argumentation There should be several reasons determining your position on the question posed: describe each of them in detail in a separate paragraph, trying to observe the semantic sequence. Do not deviate from the topic and do not forget that if the logic of the work requires it, the thesis can be placed in the last paragraph. Play on contrasts and contradictions, denote the inconsistency of the commonplace view of the subject with the scientific one, put an obstacle that is not easy to overcome. Give priority to students who not only know how to solve a problem, but also how to discern it. Mistakes: Questionable argument. Remember that the very notion of an argument implies that it is true - you should not cite someone else's speculation as evidence. Don't repeat it twice. The same idea, in other words, expressed in a different paragraph, will give the impression that there is nothing to say. Conclusion In conclusion, you should not repeat what has already been written - briefly finish your thought, write a thesis statement if you decide to leave it for last. The conclusion should be polished and elegantly summarize the previous reasoning. A good way is to share the experience of writing this particular essay: tell what proved to be the most difficult, what ideas you had to discard during your reasoning, and which ones were a revelation to you. Mistakes: New arguments. The conclusion is to summarize all of the above, this part does not imply the appearance of additional arguments: if there are still thoughts, add an additional paragraph. It will be superfluous to describe the structure and content of your work at the end - they speak for themselves. The conclusion is intended to give the reader a sense of completeness and completeness.   Related Resources: Differences between essays and other creative works Checklist for a good essay The difference between an essay and a term paper Structure of the essay

      And here is another site that I will add to the favorites list. I'm glad I found these satirical essay topics so quickly. Perhaps now I will not have to surf the web anymore.
