Tired Pup

Recommended Posts

I got a springer pup that is 8 weeks old. He plays hard for an hour or so and sleeps for a couple of hours. My question is it normal for a pup to sleep alot? Or should he have more energy than that?

I've heard puppies are a lot like human babies, they will sleep almost 20 hours a day.

You will be wishing for this when he/she is about 6-8 months old and wondering why he/she is not tired yet. This is when it flip flops

Normal - Yes.

They are fun though. I wouldn't have it any other way.

No kidding - my 10 month old Springer is JUST starting to settle down a little bit - but just a little bit. I still have to exercise him for about an hour in the morning and at night. I found a big old slingshot that shoots tennis balls (Hyper-dog) and use that. I know, I know, I'm risking a hard mouth - but at this point, I'm willing to risk it.

Plus - it's fun watching him make those 50 yard retrieves....

Have fun with the Springer pup - they don't make them much cuter...

Sand Creek Spaniels by Kilkenny. Very nice dogs - I'm pleased so far.

He still has tons of go - I'm just seeing him become a little more calm. When I go out to train, I find that he's much better after he gets a lot of exercise.

Smoke20 - that's a nice looking pup you have.

There are days when I wish my 22 month old E Setter slept like he did at 8 weeks.

I have had two from pineshadows you will not find a better kennel around here, if anywhere. Orvis did research on hunting dog kennels across the country for all breeds. And they claim pine shadows is the best nationwide for springers. I am not saying that you can't get a good quality dog elsewhere for less money. But I can guarantee you, that you will not be dissapointed with one from there.

I agree with Jimmy!!! They run a first class operation and guarantee in writing that you will be satisfied with your dog!! Can't beat that!

I train my dog at Pine Shadows and I am quite pleased with the outcome. NAVHDA Prize I Natural Ability with a goal of Prize I utility next spring. Morgan and Mark know their stuff!

I have a 6 month old male sired by Pride from Pine Shadows. I have had the pleasure to talk with the folks at Pine Shadows a few times at shows and have been very impressed with them and their knowledge.

He is a great looking pup, a tri color, he also has strong prey drive. I have had him on pigeons and will be breaking him to the gun in the next few weeks.

I can not wait to get him out in the field this fall.

We ran Pride today... Yes a very nice dog...

Jimmy, Morgan is working your dog on the controlled fetch routine one the table. Normally takes 4 or 5 days... Will teach her not to drop the bird or training dummy. Most dogs need to go through this stage of training.

Finally some really nice weather to run our dogs in...but they do need lots of water to stay cool...

yes you can... The majority of the dogs sold are 8 week old puppies that go directly to their new home. This is true of most kennels. Some individuals prefer to have the dog trained before taking home.

I hope this helps!

Pine shadows won't let a puppy go home before 10 weeks. They like to keep them a little longer. It helps with there imprinting process. They actually have a massage therapist come in and massage a puppy from day six until you pick it up. It helps them get use to being handled. They have almost 25 litters of puppies a year. You can also get started dogs. My dad is actually about to do a cool process with them. They are going to allow him to put money down on a puppy. When it's his time, he is going to go up there and pick out which one he wants. They are going to keep that puppy until it is a year old. Then he will pick it up and buy it as a started dog. They are even going to let him pick her up for a few weekends and bring her back until she is a year old. The only negative about getting a puppy from pineshadows is you might possibly have to wait a little while. People come from all across the country to get springers from there. I know from the litter my last one came from, one went to texas, another to florida.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
