Hi guys, sorry it's been a while since I stopped by..busy busy busy!
Well inevitably I'm back looking for some advice on our little Max.
Max is now 5.5months growing into a very handsome and happy boy. HOWEVER....
Max has been unfortunate enough to be caught 3 times chewing my new Nikes, my girls oldest and most favourite teddy and my Roxy specs ($600 pair of glasses) and on these three occasions he has gotten into mega trouble by me including being "banished" to the back yard for a while. While I was happy to have been able to catch him in the act (other random items have been fair welled due to his chewing tendencies but never did he get in trouble as I never caught him actually doing the deed) but now, weeks later Max has started peeing every time I raise my voice even when I'm scolding the kids (or their father lol) or sometimes even if I simply move too quickly toward him he drops to his belly and pees everywhere
Now his getting in trouble was not anything worth this reaction to me now. I feel like I've lost his trust and I don't want him to cower and react like this to me. Up until these instances I could have done and said anything around him in any voice and he would only respond if he knew I was talking directly to him. Now it's whenever I make any sudden movements or noises. Even things like coughing or sneezing as I walk near him causes this nervous peeing....I'm devastated!
He used to trust every word and move I made without hesitation....now he just runs away. What do I do? He is still finding things to chew despite my best efforts and a blanket box full of toys that he has 24/7 access to and now I'm too worried to scold him in case of cementing this nervousness he is now showing around me.
