I work from home so I am always with our 7 mth old border collie american bull dog male nurtured mix breed. We've had him since 3 mths. When my bf gets home, he usually will play for an hr or so with the pup and I will take off for the gym or errands. We take the dog on long walks on the wkends together. Rory loves my bf and listens to him and acts normal except.... In the am. Rory sleeps on the floor or in his opened crate and in the am, my bf gets up an hr early and Rory and I sleep in. My bf goes to hug or kiss me and Rory jumps on the bed and barks. This am he got very snarly and tried to bite my bf. Any telecommuters out there have suggestions of keeping the attachment equal for both dog parents? We will not crate Rory so that is not an option. Rory won't get up and go downstairs with my bf to even go outside or for a treat without me getting up. He is super attached and super protective. I think this is leading this behaviour toward my bf. I am just not sure if anyone might have dealt with this, esp telecommuters or anyone else that is home all day. Thank you!
