So I have this adorable toy poodle named Beau. My boyfriend and I added him to our little family about 3 months ago. He was a little over 3 months old. Now he's 6 months old. He is our first pet so please don't judge us too bad🙈. My boyfriend tells me I'm too soft on him and let's him get away with too much. So he has spanked Beau a few times for peeing on the carpet or tearing up something as usual. The thing is that he stopped spanking Beau probably a month ago. Recently Beau has begun biting at him and succeeded once. What's wierd to me is that he will run, cuddle, and play with my boyfriend, then all of a sudden he's attempting to bite his finger off. The most recent happened one morning when he was attempting to take Beau out of his kennel so he could outside and handle business before he left for work. Beau attempted to bite him 3 times trying while he tried to bring him out of the kennel. Is that he spanked him causing this behavior or is he aggressive of his space?
