Molly the protective springer spaniel
(London Ontario Canada)
Not sure what to do with our 9 month old Springer Molly. She has become firmly attached to my husband this last 6 weeks and decided that she is his `mate`for want of a better word. She can become quite pushy and belligerent with me if she feels that I am infringing on her time or space with him. Whenever we leave the house together we come home to find that she has dug out something that belongs to me specifically and has torn it to pieces. Last week she tore my purse apart...yesterday my makeup brushes were everywhere and shredded. Molly gets lots of attention and lots of socializing and time outside. She is not yet spayed as our intent was to breed but not so sure given her possessive behaviors that this is such a good idea.
Today when my husband went in to have a shower she stood at the door whining. When I told her to go and lie down she promptly urinated on the carpet directly outside of the bathroom door. She had just been outside 30 minutes prior and has been up to this point perfectly trained in doing her business out doors. I am at a loss as to what to do with her. Any and all suggestions are appreciated. Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
