If you have questions about purchasing a Springers Of Oz puppy, and to be considered you must read and fill out my puppy questionnaire (on my Upcoming Litter page) it outlines my cost and payment schedule, or if you have questions regarding another puppy from a different breeder feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 913-890-3576. I’d be glad to help in any way.
DON'T BUY A SPRINGER IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO COMMIT YOURSELF FOR THE DOG'S ENTIRE LIFETIME.
No dog deserves to be cast out because his owners want to move to a no-pet apartment or because he is no longer a cute puppy or didn't grow up to be a beauty contest winner or because his owners through lack of leadership and training have allowed him to become an unruly juvenile delinquent with a repertoire of undesirable behaviors.
The prospects of a responsible and affectionate second home for a "used" dog are never very bright, but they are especially dim for a shaggy, poorly mannered dog.
Be sure to contact your breeder or local English Springer Spaniel club if you are beginning to have difficulties in training your Springer so these can be resolved. Be sure to make arrangements in your will or with your family to ensure continued care or adoptive home for your Springer if you should pre-decease him.
The life span of a Springer is from 10 to 15 years. If that seems too long a time for you to give an unequivocal loyalty to your Springer, then please do not get one! Indeed, as most dogs have a life expectancy that is as long or longer, please do not get any dog!
