    Hi

    My 9 month old cavalier king charles has recently been going a bit nuts.

    When my fiancee gets home from work she gets chased our dog every where she goes, our cavalier is small and she is jumping up trying to bite her hands and when she can't she starts to bite the back of her trousers and won't let go, her tail is waggling so i assuem she isn't angry, is this simply a sign of missing her or should i get a bit worried?

    She's just being a puppy. When your fiance' gets home, make the pup sit before she gets any attention from your fiance'. When she's obnoxious, she should get ignored, and when she's calm, she should be praised and played with. Good luck.

    Yes, that exactly what I was going to say. Good advice, Purr.

    Great advice Purr. A dog is only trying to get attention by the only way he knows how. Its only when you react to the behavior that it either teaches him not to do it or that its acceptable. In other words, by ignoring the dog, you are telling him that that is not acceptable behavior and hopefully (I use that word loosly, lol) he will learn that that action will not give him the attention he's seeking.

    Well, darn, I hope you all followed that because I'm totally confused LMAO And then I wonder why my kids (two legged :)) look at me odd when I'm scolding them.
