This is so totally not related to biz…
We have a shepard cross named Katy, she’ll be 2 years old in February ’06. A big pup at 90 pounds.
Anyhow, she gets possessive from time to time… especially when she has something that shes not supposed to have. Such as tonight, she grabbed a pair of my husbands socks which shes *knows* shes not supposed to have.
So my husband went to grab the socks from her, she snapped at him and gave him a nasty bite on the hand. Nasty in the ‘we had to go to the hospital and get stitches’ kinda way. Ouch!
She has snapped at us before, but never made contact like this.
I’m at a loss here…
We are having a baby late March, and i’m getting pretty concerned about how Katy will be with the new baby. What if she gets snappy around the baby? I so totally cannot have that happen.
If it was just Dan & I in the house I wouldn’t be too concerned as I know we can handle her… but with a baby coming, yipes!
We’re going to talk to a dog behaviour trainer to see how we can fix this. Fingers crossed that it is fixable, cause I would so hate to have to give Katy up to a new family. But I will if this keeps up.
If you have any suggestions I would *LOVE* to hear them.
Sigh… the joys of doggy parenting. 🙂
