Hey guys!

I could use a piece of advice. My boyfriend and I got a puppy 3 weeks ago (mini Schnauzer). I’m staying with her during the day, we’re playing, spending a lot of time together, she learnt where to do all her needs, everything is great. But the moment my boyfriend comes home from work, her behavior changes completely. She pees wherever she wants, poop wherever and lately I notice that she doesn’t respond to me when called. If my boyfriend calls her she comes jumping, but to me nothing, not even a glimpse. What can I do?
It’s a bit frustrating tbh, she changes a lot when he comes home. Help!
Also, we’re first time dog parents.

Often female dogs find it easier to bond to male humans and male dogs find it easier to bond with female humans. No I do not know why.. just an observation.

Her peeing and pooping and being disobedient sounds like your Boy friend is not doing any of the heavy lifting of getting her out and letting her know the house rules are the same with him as with you. I say that not having any idea if he takes her out and helps with potty training or not.

Damn, should have gotten a male puppy instead! I’m kidding. It doesn’t bother me that much that she likes him more, it bothers that I disappear the moment he walks in. Like I’m not even there.
He yells at her when she pees where she shouldn’t and put her in the right place, but she doesn’t listen all the times. But excepting this, when he calls her, she comes running. When I call her, she won’t move. (When the 3 of us are together)

Yelling at her when she pees inside won't teach her to pee outside. It will teach her to pee out of sight.

Training a puppy is challenging enough when everyone's on the same page.
