Nilo has already turned twelve months old and we have started with OB classes, he is doing pretty well, besides the fact that he still tends to walk ahead when on leash that hopefully one of this years he will improve in…
But what I am concerned about is his behavior change lately, I would say that he started to show kind of a challenging behavior about a month ago, he takes longer at following commands as "off" and "leave" regardless the positive reinforcement, and what is even more surprising: he has started to whine and cry at home when he is looking through the window or in the balcony (not in the crate or when we leave, he is fine), also when we are walking on the street and I stop, he looks at me and starts whining... I do not know if he is complaining or it is just the mating season, but I do not understand. I have not had any dog males so I do not really know how they react.
Is it question of status? Is it because the mating season?
Thanks for the input:)
