Good evening ladies and gents! Happy Saturday!
So it has been officially 1 week since we brought our little chocolate bundle home and what an experience it has been! We love him to pieces already and he gives us sooo much love!
I am stressing over a little behavior that I would love some feed back on, and I should preface this by saying I know its only 1 week, but I do have a tendency to worry and overreact.
When we wake up with Mossimo, we take him to go peeps, he goes we try to have a really fun and tiring 30 minute play session, and then time to gate him in his pen (which is filled with occupiers, kongs, chewies, etc) so I can shower and get ready for work. (And then another play session before I leave) Mossimo starts barking like a mad man, loudly too! A major temper tantrum. I feel like he is waking all our neighbors up, upstairs and outside too. I am the one getting upset over it. I know everyone says to ignore the barking and let him bark, but I am feeling so upset thinking that he is barking so loudly and 6/7 am and disturbing people.
We are trying to get him used to being in his pen for short periods of time when we are home and even then he still barks like a mad man!. Which I know is his "demand" barking, and typical for a new puppy, and that he is just getting into a routine... its just sooo loud and so early.
*not to mention for all you Cesar milan watchers out there, Im sure my worrying energy and anxienty energy is feeding his frenzy
Has anyone else ever suffered from this feeling? Would love to hear your feedback - Thanks!
