Springers need exercise
The clue is in the name - 'springer' spaniel. 'To spring' means to leap forward. This suggests energy and action. The mush-for-brains-people who gave up this beautiful springer at the kennels last week took it out - wait for it - ONCE a week. Yes, only ONCE. And they wondered why it had some behavioural problems. I think I would have behavioural problems if I didn't go out each day. I'd probably spend my days of confinement surfing the net, finding out how to build a laser beam out of everyday household objects and blast my way out. This dog is not so techno-savy, so he just nipped them instead. Fair enough.
