Hello, My husband and I have a female, 2 and 1/2 year old german shepherd mix (Bella) and a 9 month old daughter (Claire). Bella has always been a super gentle, cuddly dog (albeit a bit spazzy and energetic), i.e. she's never snapped at anyone young or old, or even other doggies she plays with at the beach. We have always been able to feed her treats and she's been super gentle, and never possessive of her toys or food. When we first brought Claire home she was disinterested and distanced herself a bit, but was never aggressive with her. We could always hang out together in the same room. Well, lately things have changed. Claire started crawling about a month ago, and maybe in the last couple of weeks Bella will not leave her alone. We can't play on the floor in the same room because Bella won't stop licking Claire aggressively, it's almost like a game for her. I try to hang out with them both to teach Bella how to behave but it's like, "look see how fast I can do this thing I know I'm not supposed to do!" I don't mind a few dog licks for Claire here and there, but this is like all Bellas's focused on when we are all together. She's also gotten more possessive of her empty dog bowl, which is of course what Claire wants to play with most of all. What does this behavior mean? Should I be worried? How can I try and correct it? Thanks so much for any input!
