Snarling

Abby lately has been snarling alot when she is sleeping, usually she will allow me to move her or my husband and she's fine but if my other dog gets near her she's all teeth. Normally it's not an issue but today she bit my stepson when he sat down by her while she was sleeping.:eek: Is there anything we as B parents can do to keep this from happening?😕 I have warned the kids not to mess with her while she is sleeping but sometimes they forget. Any help on this would be great.

You need to address the behavior…. you need to work with her to stop the behavior that she bites/growls when sleeping... there have been lots of posts about this problem

Abby- don't fret it sounds like this is a common problem. I know I've seen it discussed on her a few times. Try to do a search to see if any of the posts can help you & Abby out.
