Hi guys, I just wanted to say hello as I am new here. I love this forum, I have been reading so many of your stories/opinions for some time now and you give so much information it’s great. I am so happy I found it So the reason I’m here is because of my puppy – he is ¾ springer and ¼ Labrador. He is from Kent, East Malling. He comes from working dogs family where mum (springer) and dad (half springer, half lab) were gun dogs. We met the mum and she was great. Family was really nice and also other dogs they had were good. Our little one was the smallest and not as crazy as some other puppies. Not shy but also not as full on! We played with all puppies and Coda instantly was the one we had picked and so 2 weeks later we came back to take him home. He was shy and quiet first few days and then he’s gone CRAZY. I mean, he is now what other puppies were when we came to see them 1 time. He is very confident and even a bit too much I would say. Now I have a question. Please tell me are all the puppies like this or am I going crazy? My husband had a springer before and said he was nuts but this one is just WOW . I had two German Shepards cross and never felt like it was too much. Now this one is a lot of work. Don’t get me wrong we love him and he is a very smart, super clever. We just surprised how full on he is. Also he bites so much, especially when he gets in his evening frenzy and told NO and he is very vocal (barks). I know this is stupid question but is this normal for this kind of doggy?
