Puppy aggressive with 4 year old
We have a ten week old coton from a reputable breeder. The pup is super smart, confident and fun. She seems easy to train and has an endearing, sometimes almost terrier-like personality.
Our one concern is that she seems either too rough or simply uninterested in our four year old son: she doesn't yet cuddle with him the way she does with us. Is this a puppy phase, in that she thinks of the tyke as a litter mate and just wants to roughhouse? The problem is that he over reacts, so they get into a cycle. Pretty soon she's either just nipping and growling at him or ignoring him.
We really want this great little dog to be a wonderful companion for our son, and will certainly wait it out or do whatever is necessary to make it happen. Thanks for this site. Awesome resource!
