.My Puppy Does Not Like Anyone But Me!


Recommended Posts

My husky puppy is now 15 weeks, and won't let anyone near him but me!  He likes to be by my side all the time, yet he is okay when I leave him alone at home.  He won't let anyone else touch him and recently he has started to try and bite anyone who goes to touch him.  It's just him and I that live together, but I constantly have brought him around my family to make sure he is well socialized.  He is good with other dogs and loves to play.  Other than that he is such a good dog, who is extremely smart and already knows many commands.  Should I be looking into getting a behavioural trainer or give him some time and see if he grows out of it?  Both of his parents were very calm and loving dogs.

Hi, he’s still young and as pups they do like to be with you but biting anyone who tries to touch him is not good, he definitely needs positive reinforced training to get rid of unwanted behaviours. It sounds a little like he’s guarding you and being posessive with you, he’s still young enough for you to turn this behaviour around. I wouldn’t wait to see if he changes because it could become worse.

At that age I'd suspect it's insecurity, to a large extent - though I'd agree he may be guarding as well. The best solution is to socialise him with people - and for those people not to approach him but ignore him, letting him approach them. Our current foster, despite being 5 years old, has displayed similar behaviour, though with him it's not guarding but purely insecurity (he was scared of the world as he lived in a dog run in a field without any human interaction). He's much better now and the world scares him less! 🙂
