Hey everyone.. So basically my dad bought a puppy about 2 weeks ago. Its a cocker spaniel and it was at the time 8 weeks old. I dont live at home anymore but I spend some time with the puppy over the weekend and I just noticed that he is incredibly clumsy.. falling over all the time and bumping his head into things. When we were playing with the rope I would tug very softly cause he is just a baby but sometimes he would just loose his footing and fall face first on the floor. So I thought it was just clumsiness from being so young but I just wanted to make sure and ask you guys what you think this is?
All opinions are appreciated Thanks!
Actually its one of the best parts about having a puppy! When Spyro was that age, he would zoom through the house with his brother and slide on our laminate floor lol. Oh cockers...they tend to have a bunch of ear problems so make sure you start on ear care early.
most dogs and puppy's like a cocker spaniel get a lot of hair between thier paws. It will take him time, but....he will get use to it and learn how to nevagate better with the tracktion interferance on his paws.
That was sooo cute. I still remember when my Peach was a little cutie (he is still cute now), when we played and there was never a dull moment. Just by looking at him feels so good as he is so cute. I guess your pup is just doing what a puppy usually do but if it is over the normal clumsiness, you should consult a vet. Nonetheless, I think that is just normal and it is cute!
