I'd love to hear your thoughts - I am 8 weeks pregnant, and pretty much since I became pregnant, my lovely almost 2 year old GSP dog has regressed in behaviour badly. We're having to go through all the naughty (and sometimes dangerous) things he did when he was a lot younger.
I've read lots of people's comments online that their dogs became clingy and affectionate - I wish! He's definitely still kind and nice to me, no aggression or any attempts to boss me around, but he has started jumping up at me (he weighs 35 kgs, that is not a nice feeling when he does a running leap at me, not to mention a bit dangerous if I fall badly), has started getting pretty whiney/howling and demanding when I eat or when he feels he is not #1 for even a few minutes. If I ignore him, he's gone back to the not-so-good old days of circling the room and jumping up on tables/counters to find whatever he can find that he should not touch to grab, run off with and generally be naughty!
I just don't get it. Four months ago he was just starting to settle into being the placid, wonderful companion we knew he would be. There is nothing else that has changed to explain this unless he's just going through another phase. Despite my fatigue and nausea, I have been almost able to entirely keep up with the 1.5-2 hours of exercise he used to get every day (it's been killing me!). Admittedly I have to stop for breathers regularly, but he does not seem phased by this - more time to sniff things. He's also been getting lots of love and attention.
Anyway, I would love to know if anyone had similar experiences.
