Do other members feel, as I do, that this thread should be merged with the one of the same title (and by the same OP) in Behaviour and Training, that way it would be easier for all concerned to keep up with posts and advice given to poster as this is an incredibly difficult subject.

Yes, I thought the same. The poster hasn‘t come back however, I do hope we haven‘t lost her....

Good idea - I'm on it!

I have merged the two topics on this subject into this one. There may be a bit of duplication, but at least it's all in the same place  ;)

Both Phoenix and IPS make extremely valid points.

PS
I just had my wife read the OP post without reading any replies incl my own and her take on it was exactly same as mine with no prompting from me.

Does anyone do Husband training?   I know what you both feel with this added stress.  I got the ‘it’s me or the dog’ stand off. The dog stayed naturally, and the cave man sulked. He wasn’t brought up with dogs, and had no empathy. Wouldn’t listen to my dog training techniques, from the basic eye contact on.  He likes my scruffy terrier because of the one in Just William books, but is still a zombie on walks, casually holding a lead with a couple of fingers.
Cockers and tears go together

I am no expert by any stretch of the imagination but this is how I read the situation....you say your husband has no bond with Watson and presumably as such shows little if any affection. Could it be that Watson picks up on this and is desperate for your husband to like him, what you see as an obsession with him is actually a cry for affection from the dog. Imo Watson is following him everywhere in order to befriend him. A very wise man who was a member of this group (Jeff...RIP) once told me via a PM chat that cockers hate to be ignored and that for them being ignored was the very worst form of correction.....that's my take on your situation.

I am so sorry to read this.  Have a look at the other post in Puppies, I’ve added as much as I know about separation anxiety which did work with Pearl.

I can help with recall and obedience (remember Coral?) best chatted on a phone call, it will be far too much information to type and I risk typing the wrong thing! Send me a PM if you would like my contact details.  It does get better, honestly!
