Perry still hates your husband? Perry, Perry, Perry, what are you thinking? You are a loving HAVANESE!
Well, first I have to say that my husband isn't doing a ton to help change this (he grew up in a culture where "pampering" dogs was not and is not a thing and the way Perry acts makes him feel like he's some sort of monster and he sees no reason to do the things the behaviorist suggested because Perry just needs to behave right).
However, I've also started to see a bit of a pattern and it's really weird. I feel like it's when stress builds up (either that or Perry has multiple personality disorder
). For example, since he's on crate rest right now, when I get home, I take him out of the crate and then sit on the couch with him. Perry starts out on my left, my husband is on the right side of the sectional. Perry will, every day, jump over to the other side of me, and lie between us, stretched out toward my husband. Depending on the day he'll then sniff at or nudge his hand or throw one of his toys at him (his way of wanting to play). My husband can then pet him (sometimes) as long as he continues to otherwise ignore him. However, if my husband moves, Perry freaks out and jumps back to the other side. Then, on the same day, a few hours later when I take Perry out again, when we come back in or walk across the living room he might (not every day) stop and either bark or growl at my husband - even if my husband doesn't move a muscle sitting on the couch watching tv or doesn't look at him. So, I am wondering if it's a build up of anxiety/ nervousness. Because, when this happens, if I put him back in his crate for 15 minutes or so, he chills out and is fine when he comes back out. I think Perry is generally an anxious pup and needs some alone time to decompress at times.
