Bella is 15 months old  We've just moved from Devon to Norfolk, and were so proud when her new vet said "She's perfect! And so beautiful! Bella's going to be spayed on Tuesday (she has a little hernia) and we're concerned about the collar she'll have to wear. We've bought a comfy collar, but

Lazy springer
« on: December 13, 2018, 12:53:10 PM »
How many of you have a lazy springer? When we get up in the morning there is no enthusiasm for him to go out. Normally takes about an hour to get going! Once out and in the woods or on the fields he is running around. Once home and breakfast eaten, he is happy to sleep for hours! Almost have to encourage him out again...Outside he is active but as soon as inside itís like a different dog...just happy to doze....and heís only coming up to 3 ! Anyone else have one like this?

maybe a change of location for your walk might help. Cindy the 1st Springer we had, was sedentary in her ways, Sam & more so Harry now absolutely hyper. The new scenery might spark some renewed interest

Canít say I recognise his at all  :023 Alf is always first up in the morning, first out of the door (even if Iím only going to put the rubbish out), first into the car (even if weíre not going for a walk) and always keen to go into the garden for a sniff around. Unless itís raining of course!

Yep we have a lazy springer. He just loves to sleep on the sofa in the sun for most of the day! Doesn't really seem to matter if we have been on a long walk somewhere different or been on a shorter local walk either - he still just sleeps when he's in the house. He also goes to bed by about eight, won't sit with us on a night just want his bed 😴😴 x

Haha sounds like they must be related! Ours is very lively outside, will run for as long as we let him in the woods or common land, but put him in the house and itís like another dog. No interest in toys at all....just sleeping! Goes out about 9pm for quick walk/wee then sleeps till 7. Slowly wakes up and ready for run at about 7.30 or first light!

Our Breagha must also be a close relative.  She goes out for her last wee around 9 or 10 pm and then stays in (our  :023)  bed till we get up.  Then we have to lure her to go outside and wee.  But when we take her out for her long daily morning walk, she is a changed dog - running around like crazy, chasing her ball, finding and chewing sticks, swimming in the cold river........  -  and we love her in whichever modus she is.

Yep, another one here. Just like Breagha  :023   Asleep most of the evening beside us on the sofa and has to be enticed out for a last wee about 9.30pm then she takes herself off to bed (Our bed ).

Doesn't stop for breath when out on walks. Running free over fields and through woods and happily chasing ball in between!
