New Baby and 2 1/2 Year Old Havanese - Advice Needed
I have a 2 1/2 year old havanese and recently had a new baby. I am having a lot of trouble with my dog. We did all the recommended prep for the baby - I walked around with a doll, played crying sfx, brought home an article of clothing - all before we brought the baby home.
Now that the baby is here, my dog is constantly jumping up on his pack and play (she ignored it before). When I am holding or feeding the baby, my dog is jumping up, humping me, scratching my legs, and just generally trying to get closer to the baby. She has also nipped at the baby's toes and growled at me. I am trying to block her but I had a c-section and it's difficult for me to keep getting up and down. My dog has also been having accidents in the house even though we walk her 4 times a day.
I need serious help and fast. If anyone has a trainer in the NJ area to recommend please send me the info. Or please email any advice of how we can handle this in the meantime. I love my dog so much and do not want this to get worse. Thank you!
