So this post is to all the single people out there. I am just newly single and kept my baby, Monty in the breakup. I am not ready to date yet but I am starting to realize that I might have a problem when I do. Monty is a total momma's boy and is getting more and more protective of me. I am going to work on this with a behaviorist because if there is another man in the house (friend, landlord) and talking to me he starts barking like mad. He is also protective of me with other dogs. We were at a picnic the other day where he was an angel all day but then one of the other dogs there came near me as Monty was sitting by my feet and he freaked out on the dog. Didn't bite him but definitely had me worried.
Ok and the big embarrassing question is about where Monty sleeps. He started sleeping on the bed at about 6 months. The bed high so I have to pick him up to get on and off the bed but I am thinking of getting a ramp. Of course I love my snuggle buddy but I am thinking of trying to teach him to sleep on his bed on the floor or in a crate again. One reason is that I have to travel a lot this fall for work and my dad might be watching him for some of the trips but couldn't have the dog on the bed with him. Has anyone tried this? Of course it might be harder to train me versus the dog but in the long run it might be better for him.
Thanks for any advice!
