The Springer does not need a lot of exercise as a pup, but as it gets older it is advisable to walk the dog daily or at least three times a week. This is not only good for the dog but also for you and will prevent the dog from becoming bored which may lead to destruction of things around the home.


Although the Springer will adapt to any environment from a farm to a suburban backyard, it loves to exercise. Teach your Springer to chase balls in the backyard, or play other games that will provide natural exercise. Springers also enjoy a variety of “doggie toys” to play with. Take care to remove anything from the toy that can be chewed off and swallowed.


In many areas, the local Council will have fully fenced off-leash areas. These are a GREAT idea. Enquire with your local council. There are also many obedience and agility clubs, fly ball clubs and even lure coursing clubs. Ask your local council office for details.
