Hi, as you have probarbly seen from my photos, we have a five yr old springer. Absolutely wobderful, kind natured, calm loving dog. In dec of 2011 we got marley, a puppy lurcher, wasnt planned, he was on his way to the blue cross when a lady on the school run mentioned him to me. Anyway, to cut a long story short, we ended up having him, overnight the house turned into chaos, crying, nipping, weeing everywhere, older dog refusing to acknowledge him accepting to growl n snarl at him. Christmas came n went, marley calmed down loads, alfie HAVING to live with the situation, only problem is the nippin/biting fromthe pup. We have all been cut till we bled, the more we shout no, squeal etc the harder the biting becomes. It's as though he thriving on hurting us, so much so that the kids aged 17,16 and 11 won't look after him because he hurts them too much. He has the past week done nothing but mount my leg. Why is he doing this and why just to me? (only mine). Love him to bits but he is so hard work, does anyone think he will calm down n be chilled out like my springer?
