My husband and I got a german shepard/lab/newfoundland mix puppy about 3 1/2 months ago. We already had an 8lb. chihuahua/jack russell mix. Well, as you can imagine, the puppy (who is now five months old) has gotten quite big, about 35lbs. now.
She does this weird thing where she tries to lay and stand on us all the time, whether we're standing or sitting or laying down and she does it to my other dog as well. She stands with her paws on my feet and leans on my legs when I'm standing, which can be painful because she puts all of her weight onto her paws and on my feet. She'll also go up to my other dog and stand over her or try to lay on on top of her. Does anyone know what this means?
I should also mention, in case it's related, that she is very attention seeking right now. It's like she has to have someone's full attention 24/7 and when we're all busy she barks and stares at us, runs back and forth around the house making noise and chewing on herself. We walk and run her everyday so it's not like she's not getting exercise.
Any insight would be great. I work at home and have to deal with this all day and I'm about to pull my hair out! Thank you!
