The English Sprointer is a new designer breed that's the result of crossing an English Springer Spaniel with an English Pointer. This pooch comes from two hunting lines and will likely have lots of energy to burn. They're affectionate and intelligent animals that blend well with active families or individuals. Although wary of strangers at times, your pup will be loyal to you and their pack. Give them at least one to two hours of daily exercise to keep them fit and happy. A bored Sprointer can become anxious or get into trouble. They'll thrive if they can participate in a variety of outdoor activities.
For a sporting dog like the English Sprointer, lure coursing is a puptastic way to burn off some energy. In this sport, your pooch chases an artificial decoy that's attached to a mechanized pulley and wire system Fido will enjoy running after the item as it darts around a large field. This activity offers your fur-baby a mental and physical workout, and it lets them follow their instincts. Add a social aspect to the fun by finding a local club where your special pal can compete against other canines. You can also set up a lure course in your back yard if you prefer.
This pooch is usually athletic and has plenty of stamina. Why not include your four-footed friend when you go running? That way you and your furry pal will have bonding time and get in a good workout at the same time. You'll want your pup to be at least a year old so that their body and musculature is mature. In the meantime, teach them commands like heel, come, and stay. Before you begin your roadwork, take Fido to the vet for a checkup. When your special pal has a green light, you'll want a leash or harness and maybe a reflective collar or vest.
Take your pup to a dog-friendly park and toss a frisbee for them. Once they learn how to catch the flying disc in the air, they'll enjoy streaking down the field after it.
When you combine the personality of an English Springer Spaniel with that of an English Pointer, you'll have a faithful, energetic companion. This pooch will thrive with an owner that can offer plenty of activity and outdoor adventures. They also tend to blend well with other pups but may view smaller pets as their quarry.
