This looks a bit like he was crowded by me and my husband, but he climbed over my husband's knees to get in there and there's a cat behind him which you can hear moaning at him at about 5 seconds in!

I'm just asking really because he's got quite mouthy again in the last couple of days and he rumbles like this at the same time.

Is this an excited dog as I'm perceiving it or is he growling?!

Looks a lot like what my Josey does. He gets what I call "activated" in the presence of the cat and is desperate to get to the cat. He can get a bit mouthy with us in that context. What I see with your dog is 90% play and 10% frustration that your husband is in the way.

I'd approach this by doing a lot of c/t with Ben for calm behavior around the cat.

He looks and sound just like my dog Esme. She does basically the same thing but hers sounds more like a yodel at times. She unfortunately has picked up the bad habit of getting a bit mouthy in the time she's been with my parents (thanks to my useless brother) but it's just her playing and she never bites down and that looks like what Ben was also doing. So I think it's him just playing around and yes a bit of frustration when he can't get to the cat at the exact second he wants to.

Thanks all. I should say that the cat was behind him - he came over to us and totally ignored the cat. I didn't even realise he was there until I saw the video. The cat was just under/behind my chair. Does that make a difference? He could have got to the cat easily.

It's hard to tell from the video but I thought he had chased after the cat or went to see where the cat went. If the cat was behind you from what you can see on the video he wasn't at all interested in the cat so I don't think it has any thing to do with the cat being there or not.

Thanks. Yes, I was sitting on the chair by the desk and the cat was just at my feet. I was taking the film. Ben doesn't seem to be interested in the cats unless they're flicking their tails at him and making rumbling, at which point he thinks they're trying to play and he ends up with a scratched nose...

I should maybe do some c/t on the cats...lol
