OK guys and gals, ....I've noticed some behaviour from Mojo that has me guessing what it means.
If i play wrestle with my kids, Mojo will not tolerate it.....at all. He gets in between us with a deep growl and breaks it up everytime. He will mouth us....teeth making contact but never a bite and uses his body and head to push us apart and wont stop till we stop. He usually goes me first.....dunno why ??
Then last night my daughter was standing on the lounge and wanted me to do one those hand slap games that girls do.....ya know the ones that have a song go with it and you stand infront of each other and slap hands together in all sorts of diffrent routines ??.....well we started and Mojo just flew at us and knocked her flying...he wasnt having any of that going on in his house.....no way. LOL.......She was alright...luckily she landed on the lounge....she was pissed off though and yelled at me that we need to get a new puppy....one that isnt so rough.
So i realise he dosnt like anyone fighting or playing boisterous around him at all........Got me wondering if a robber broke in and i had to go toe to toe with them....would my dog go me instead of the bad guy ??? or both of us ???
Is this a dominating behaviour ??? is he been top dog and saying "hey, i dont like that crap...cut it out !!!".
It's obvious we arnt hurting each other but he just will not put up with it at all. I feel like i'm a kid in trouble with my dog
What are your thoughts on it....i have no idea why he wont let us play rough.
