Aggression Towards a Specific Person?
My pup Olive is nearly 3 months old and we've had him for a little over 3 weeks. He's doing really well for the most part - minimal whining, doing well with basic commands, etc. But here's the thing - I live with my girlfriend and Olive is significantly more aggressive toward her than me. Over the past week and a half he's gotten a lot better about nipping me and does it pretty rarely (I use the yelp/ignore method when he bites me and then praise him when he gnaws on a toy). He's still very nippy with my partner though and she's getting frustrated. He often ignores his toys just to bite her feet/hands. He's also started humping her fairly often. Even though she yelps/ignores him/leaves the room/praises him when he grabs a toy pretty much the same way I do, he definitely goes after her more often. Any one else had this problem of aggression toward a specific family member? Any words of advice?
