  1. Thank you very much. I've contacted one woman close by who is highly recommended so fingers crossed she can shine some light on this odd behaviour. The thing with dave is he's a very attached dog, has been since I brought him home his old owners were another young couple who seemed to love him her much till...they had a baby. Their son was 3 weeks old which seems to point even more to his bad experiences surrounding pregnancy and babies etc. Because of this he has always had separation anxiety with my self. In the 5 years I've been his mama I've left him twice for trips away and both times he has stayed at home wot h my husband and put 2 other dogs but all he's done is pine for me, even when I go to work he lies by the door waiting for me to come home. He's gotten a lot better and we have really had to put a lot of work in with him because at 1st I couldn't go to the shop with out him tearing up the floor trying to get out after me so he has come along way and just hope this behavourist can help us understand this final hurdle with him because he really is my best friend. I couldn't imagine coming home with this little girl and him not being the 1st face greeting the both of us as we walk through the door. Also like yourself I have had a lot of anxiety during this pregnancy and infact I think I will continue to till she's in my arms so this carnt be helping him either...Thank you very much for the advice I would never of though about a behavourist infact didn't know they existed lol but now hopefully I'm on my way to making my Davey happy again xx Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  2. That's what I'm frightened of because rehoming just isnt an option for us. He's my world literally. The vet just seems to want to keep giving him antibiotics and the cone but that's not dealing with the issue at hand. I know it sounds daft but he is clearly worked up about something for him to constantly be doing it. The things that spring to mind are the fact that this isn't my 1st pregnancy I've had multiple miscarriages previously to the point me and my husband had to seek fertility advice and during those miscarriages dave was my rock he never left my side for the weeks it took me to recover from each one. He was there through all the tears and the hurt and now I'm guessing he's associating there hormonal changes in myself with the negative experiences from before I.e seeing his owner in distress and crying which in turn makes me feel like the worst dog owner on the planet and like I've failed him. It's also hard trying to speak to his vet about this because his vets attitude is 'it's a dog get over it' sort if thing I just dint know where to turn xx Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  3. Hi everyone I am the proudest owner of dave my 6 year old husky cross german shepherd. He's my baby in every sense of the word and has been since the day we got him at 11 monthd old. The problem is he has developed a sore in his right paw. I obviously took him to the vets which did general checks and said it was an anxiety sore caused by excessive licking...he asked at the time which was 4 months ago if any big changes had occurred which they hadn't untill I found out a week later I'm pregnant wot h our first child. So this is what I'm assuming has caused him to feel anxious...we gave him a month of antibiotics and he had to wear a cone and the sore healed lovely...untill the cone came off and the licking began immediately to the point the sore is back. Do you think he's going to continue this till I give birth in 4 months time? Will he even stop once baby is born or do you think I need behavioural classes for him? Please any advice will be appreciated because he has be beside my self with worry Many thanks one worried fur mama Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
