Ok so at my mothers for the week, Leo and Lilly sleep where ever they care to in this house. Last night Leo ended up in my mothers bedroom down one end of the house & I was down the other end with the kids. I went to bed much earlier then mum & dogs did too, then I got up at 2am to get a drink...as youdo make some noise in the kitchen (located middle in the middle of house) as I closed the fridge door I heard
*scuffle scuffle bang bang*
Leo had woken up and ran out of mums room and into the hallway, chest puffed out, front legs open, fur fluffed up, barking the deepest barks I've ever heard him do...we couldn't see each other at this point.
So I walked around the corner and he came part way down the hall at me barking I said 'enough', he continued on, so I switched on the lights thinking it would help, nope he still goes on, I walk forward saying angerily now 'leo enough'. Once I get 2ms away he stops and rolls on the floor like a doofus.
I switch light off and go back to bed and he follows me in tail between legs and lickity licking me, then sleeps on the bed I was on.
Has anyone elses dogs ever not recognised you when they get in protective mode? He is only a puppy still, unfamiliar situation etc all contributing factors. But still. Shouldn't he of stopped when I spoke first? (our gsd would stop and sit as soon as we spoke)
(oh btw Lilly was just standing behind him with tail between legs and ears down doing little piddles the whole time...she is a wuss lol)
