Hey everyone, new here and badly in need of help.
We have a 7 month old Yorkshire Terrier who is a fun, loving, attention seeking dog 98% of the time.
Except when I’m home and my husband comes in the room.
It’s not that she doesn’t like him, because when I’m not around she will jump up on him and let him pet her and sit with him. But when I’m in the room she will just all of a sudden growl at him and back away or under something. And this doesn’t happen every time either, about 75% of the time.
I was just gone for a weekend and left her home with him and the kids, and he never had a problem with her all weekend, except that when he needs to take her outside to go potty she always runs away, which only pisses him off.
As soon as I’m back in the house, she growls when he comes in the room. I’m scared that he’s going to hurt her because he gets so angry about it every time she does it.
I’m sure this must be fear based, I just need help with how to fix it ASAP
