Do you act excited and happy around her? Dogs are very aware of our emotions. If you tend to be laid back and less exciting, she may be responding to your attitude.

Since you've only had this dog for three months, give it time. She may have not been around many men or she may have had a scary experience with a male and you will have to make a special effort to make her more comfortable and happy around you.

Scolding her for going in the kitchen or on the bed is not helping your cause. cookieface has given you good advice on training and you might share it with your sister. Rather than scolding, teach.

Although my dog obviously loves my husband, it's me who gets all the excitement, but I play with her indoors by rolling around like a loon & can be quite silly with her, my husband is more reserved & quiet. We just play different roles in her life. I think dogs do often bond with one person over another, so don't take it personally, & I'm sure your dog doesn't hate you . Just keep having fun with her & hold off on the scolding, redirect her when she does something you don't like, toys or treats usually work for this

Hi Mindbox,

Welcome to the Dog Forum! A couple of thoughts:

a) Can you put up a baby gate blocking access to the kitchen?

b) Give your puppy a wonderful dog bed next to the bed and encourage her to use it. If she's got a comfortable bed of her own, you can redirect her to it whenever she tries to jump up on your bed.

Rather than being the "no no" guy, start rewarding her more for all of her wonderful behavior. You can strap a treat bag around your waist and give her food rewards throughout the day. And, rather than fill her up with treats, you can simply use her kibble. Labs are generally pretty food-motivated dogs, and if she sees you the source of her food, she'll warm up to you in no time.

I am very laid back and easy going. So my excited isn't as excitedable as my sister.

So that makes sense.

Lol, I guess she hasn't seen Arnold.

I like to cuddle more often then I do like to get excited. Err I guess my problem is I treat her to much like a cat sometimes. And that could be pretty confusing for a puppy, huh?
