Need some advice on my oldest yorkie. He is just over a year old and always been fine with my house cats. They are ragdolls so bigger than him anyway. But lately whenever they enter a room I am in he's ready to pounce and goes for them nastily. It's getting on my nerves having to break it up and I don't understand why he's suddenly doing it
I am pregnant but have been for 9 months and he's been fine up until the last 2 weeks id say!
Why has he been fine up to now though. He has been neutured. His barking has become progressively worse since being pregnant and he growls at anyone on a walk now that I'm pregnant to it's embarrassing.
It's only happened the last two weeks I'm not see whether he can sense she's near coming as he's always been fine.
He's not in pain no he's had a check up recently an I have been in touch with a behaviourist as our groomer is also one. She has said she thinks he's sensing my hormones and that a big change is happening.. I just wanted to see if anyone else had experienced similar on here and had other explanations.
It's not every time. Tonight he has been fine with them weirdly.
Dogs do react to pregnancy hormones. My bitch was awful through most of my pregnancy, stressy, attached to me, sensitive, etc. she went back to normal the moment I gave birth. It's certainly a possibility.
He was neutured 6 months ago so I think if it was that he would have became aggressive before now? Vets said he was the picture of health. Checked him all over felt his hips legs and checked teeth etc. He's calmed down in many other 3ays it's strange that he's suddenly aggressive to the cats!
I will get a second opinion from another behaviourist though just to put my mind at rest. Really hope it's just my hormones.
My sister's jack Russel bitch is petrified of me. She runs away from me or looks at me and shakes violently. She's always loved me up until the last 4 weeks. She even weed on their bed whilst I was there. She's never weed in the house in the 10 years they've had her. However her male Jack Russell is the opposite and doesn't leave me alone or stop licking me.
