Attention Seeking Dog
Q: Attention Seeking Dog PetPlanet Vets PPAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org
Hiya, my name's jim
Our family has had a dog for 5 years.
She was from a protection of animals center
her history is unknown,I believe she was one when we got her.
Originally she was very hyperactive, she ripped up carpet, pooed in the house,did not come back, jumped, aggressive etc;
I'm sure you get the picture.
Over a number of years she improved with no housing wreaking, relative good behavior off the lead.
However she began to whimper when she didn't get her walk at AM in the morning.
This behavior then traveled to if she wasn't allowed in a room if we had guests and then to any situation were she did not get what she appeared to want.
Two years ago we had a son and since then the behavior has become more unmanageable.
Other behaviors have returned.
My partner has great difficulty controlling her whilst out, with my dog often not responding to commands anymore.
It would not be as difficult if we did not have a son but we do, and therefore wag the dog gets less attention. Our son is also interested in wag, and will want to play.
Wag has growled at our son a number of times.
anyhow the two main things are the growling at my son, and the whimpering and whining(can be very loud, and seems to touch a raw nerve within us both). Any suggestions at all of how to deal with this will be much appreciated.
