Hi guys name is Meghan and my husband and I just brought home a 12 week old papillon puppy! His name is villicious aka villy.
I need some help with him being aggressive and stand offish with my husband.
When we went to go pick him up from the breeders he was with me the whole time for the first three days of having villy we had to travel so he stayed in my lap or arms. Probably not the best thing. Anyways he is now very attactched to me. Follows me around winless when I step out of the room. Even if he's in a dead sleep and I get up and he notices he ll wake up and wait for me to return.
The other day my husband tried picking him up and villy started yelping and trying to bite home being extremely aggressive.
I ve read and been told that papillons usually do not act this way! Aim worried because he is my first puppy and I'm not sure how to correct this behavior.
I've been trying to get my husband to spend more time with him and do what I do but he doesn't want to baby him lol.
So I need some advise on how to correct this behavior before villy is old and hates my husband or perhaps other people.( though hes been fine towards my husband and other people before we came home)
Please someone help with my little papillon problem!

Thank you that makes a lot of sense. It does get frustrating cause I want villy to respond to my husband the way he does me. Dave (my husband) just said he tried the treat thing last night villy would come get the treat bit then still wouldnt let Dave touch him. But then this morning villy let him take him out for a potty and take his harness off and on a couple times lol. We will keep trying and I'll get Dave to do all the feeding and be on villas level.
