We Have Not had any Problem's with Dug Ever since his "bite" with Nash, But The other Day My partner's Little cousin came around, His 8 and not s small kid. He isn't a kid who likes dog's much, but didn't do anything to dug, wasn't near him but for some reason Dug seemed to not like him.
Dug Growled at him, and had his hackles up & was constantly watching the kid. We felt a little UN easy with it since we have had a problem once before.
So we Held Dug and got Kian to come up and give him a pat, got Kian to ask him to sit before he gave him a treat and he did. He was wagging his tail the whole time, so it had us confused, because His sister was there as well and Dug was fine with her. No problem.
And then Today we had another little boy here, a 5 yr old boy who has grown up around dog's and again Dug did the same. Again we don't know why. Dug is Fine with our kids, very gentle, listens, plays and is great, with other kids he has been fine, it's just been these two instants were its been a bit of an issue.
I am thinking he May not Like Boys? Younger boys, he has been a little off on a couple of men, but once he knew who they were he has been fine.
Has anyone had a similar problem?
What can I do to help Dug get over this issue?
As i said he's a great dog, No problems other than this.
I am now thinking that Maybe when he was a pup, a young boy has done something to him & That's what's causing this. But what ever the reason I want to be able to help dug get over it.
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!
