This is my first ever dog and I'm not quite sure what the appropriate response to this is. My wife and my dog and I all like snuggling on the couch together. Our dog is always just laying near us anyway, sometimes she'll lay on our lap or somewhere else on the couch. If we need to readjust or get up off the couch or anything that involves us moving her, she wakes up and growls all grumpy and puts her weight down so we can't move her. I know she's just grumpy and doesn't want to be moved most likely because she's been snoozing feeling all safe and comfy, but we do have to move her sometimes as it's a small couch and you can't exactly get up with her laying on you (and we like sharing the couch with her too!). My question is, is that behavior that we should be correcting? I've been told that dogs should never growl at their owners ever. Is that true? She's our first dog and we have no clue. (I think we're doing fairly well in terms of training her- we've taught her sit, stay, lay down, roll over, beg, shake, army-crawl, to ring the doorbell when she needs to potty, to sit and make eye contact before she eats, etc; the things she needs the most work on is stuff like listening when she's distracted, not pulling on her leash when she sees other people/dogs/creatures and not jumping on people when she's excited and such. Would love to do professional dog training but it's way too expensive so we're just kinda working hard on our own even though it's a bit like the blind leading the blind lol).
