WELL…As of yesterday (Friday) I am 32 weeks, Baby Aiden is Due September 14th. I actually think it makes sense that i might be smelling different, because I'm pregnant, but Ive been pregnant for a while now, and this behavior started a week or so ago. DH is home, but working all the time (this isn't new) I feel like i do give him TONS of attention, and we go to the dog park often (Jack is VERY protective of me against male non neutered dogs, ESP. when they come within a 40ft radius of me, but this isn't new either) I am doing as well as i can with correcting him, but to be honest, sometimes hes getting RIGHT under my feet (and Lord knows i cant see him down there over my belly) and it scares me because he'll be sniffing away and he trips me ALL the time, so i Definitely give an ANGRY "NO!!!!!" but it doesn't faze him whether I'm nice about it or not (as some of you know he listens more when my DH corrects him, he doesn't care when women do) but this isn't ALL the time…Im just worried that one day ill be at the top of the stairs and he'll be at my feet and well...i can only imagine...I know he doesn't think he's being bad, but i wish he'd give it a rest already!He'll even walk next to me at my pace and not even look where he's going, just have his nose pressed RIGHT up against my leg…funny, but STILL Frustrating!!
First I would like to say Congratulations!!!! I am also pregnant and our Charlie is due October 24.
NOW I get what you're saying. Completely!!! Corky is at my feet constantly lately and I'm getting a little sick of him stepping on my bare feet. Although I absolutely LOVE it when I stop and his little nose slamb into my leg. hehe…Makes me giggle. Anway, I have to admit that at about the fifth or sixth time he steps on my feet I stomp my feet and tell him to leave me alone. Does that work? Of course not!!! So, I just sit for a minute, give him some love, let him outside or ask my husband to find him something else for him to do.
I also hear what you're saying about the stairs. VERY scarry!!! I am training myself at this point to find him and send him down the stair ahead of me. If Jack won't do this on command, I suggest keeping treats at the top to throw down for him to go get. As far as up, Corky thinks that's a race so I don't have to worry about that at all.
As far as the smelling, I have no suggestions. BUT, I will let you know if Corky does the same thing to me when I'm about 32 weeks.
