Hi, new to this but need some advice. My boyfriend and I are going to have a baby. He just got his dogs back a couple of months ago and I am having problems with the dogs. They get on furniture, dragging clothes all over and the other night both 90lb lab mixes jumped up and laid down on me in the middle of the night. He doesn't seem to understand the problem. He just statesthe dogs are "inside dogs" he refuse to shut them out of any rooms. I really don't want them jumping on me or the bed in the middle of the night or on the baby (god forbid). The dogs don't listen to me and he is no help. Any advice on getting the dogs to listen and obey? Any advice for getting the boyfriend to listen and obey (just kidding) Thank you.
We just had a puppy at the time. So it is a little diffrent, but same concept.
Any way one morning he let Gumbo out of his crate. Well he jumped right on the bed which I was pregant at the time.
I just got up got dressed grabed my dog and left the house.
We had had discussions about the puppy jumping up on things before.
Anyway he came looking for me and I told him I do not like the dog jumping on my head or my stumach. Do you want me to loose the baby, because if he hits just right that is what is going to happen.
Then with the dog jumping on him. I told him that he better make the dog stop or its going to jump on the baby one day. Then the baby is going to fall backwards hit its head.
And we will be on our way to the emergancy room. There you will have to explain that it wasn't child abuse it was just the dog jumping on him that made him fall. NPt us smashing his haed in to the ground.
If he really wants the child and doesn't care about your feelings us the baby to explain things to him.
Labs are big they need to be trained. Once the baby comes they can not be pushing it around. They can not be laying on it, jumping on it or biting at it.
Also explain that if the dogs hit you hard enough you could loose the baby. From what I have heard and know people who have lost their babies it can be very painful. Emotionaly and physcally.
Good luck. Don't you just wish we could hang men sometimes.
