Dog plays with me not girlfriend

1049 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  NDpups
My girlfriend has an american eskimo, about 7 years old that was a rescue dog from a pound about 4 months ago. He will occasionally growl at her if she is giving to much what I call human love, kisses on the nose, hugs around his neck or when she picks him up to hold/hug him. He will dog play with me batting me with his paws, playful mouth, roll over etc. But he will not do it with her, any ideas why?

Those two things are connected. Hugging, kissing and picking up are terrifying and/or angering to dogs. He's tolerating a certain amount, then telling her to stop. She needs to find out what the dog likes, not what she likes.
