It sounds very much like a pack-related issue in that the dog is getting the reinforcement of your husband leaving, thus elevating your dog's rank within the pack. On the surface it appears benign, however, these issues with a dog can escalate, as they will continue to do "little" things to reinforce their elevated status. This type of behavior can lead to all sorts of problems down the road. Therefore, I think it is best to address it, even if on your husband's behalf; the same way you would with showing a dog that their rank is below a child's within the household.

Thanks coco,

Great statement here poochpatrol...

Once you humans are ready to get trained, then the dog will get better as well.

...and true to the point, we have to be trained and know what we are doing before we can train, if we are confused and befuddled with what we are doing when training how can we expect the dog to learn without also being confused.

You and your husband have to come together on this, make plan and work the plan as a united front, if you do not I fear that the issue will escalte to the point where a choine will have to be made.
Sorry if this is coming out harsh but it is the reality of the situation.

Best of luck
Adrian
